Marloes Coenen says she's next
Here's a video interview with Marloes Coenen courtesy of Ariel Helwani of AOL Fanhouse. She says she's not under contract to Strikeforce yet but she says she has been promised the first shot at Cris Cyborg's 145lb Championship. Of course Erin Toughill said the same thing the other day. Marloes was scheduled to fight Cyborg in Montreal earlier this year but Cris pulled out. Marloes is from The Netherlands and is the most experienced of the fighters available and she was under contract to EliteXC last year. Marloes won the very first World Remix tournament in Tokyo in 2000 at age 19. She is a legend in Japan but has never fought in the US.
