It has been a year since the # 7 ranked 145 pounder Cindy Dandois (1-0) had one of the biggest upsets in women’s MMA history, defeating # 3 ranked Marloes Coenen. People have been waiting for her second match, and now the wait is over.
The Belgian Dandois will be facing Danish fighter Maria Hougaard (1-1) at the M-1 Global Selection Series this Friday, which will be streamed live on the Sherdog website. A great showing for Dandois could lead to an invitation to the upcoming Strikeforce 145 pound tournament to find a contender for Cyborg Santos.
Hougaard is coming off a win verse Melissa Lan this past November.
The fight is a part of the M-1 Global card in The Netherlands and will be streamed live on Friday Feb. 5 at 12 PM (noon) EST/9 AM PST on the Sherdog website.
