Top mma fighter Marloes Coenen talks to Fightergirls about her upcoming match with Sarah Kaufman, the weight cut, and her passions outside the cage.
The co-main event match at this Saturday’s Stikeforce, which is airing on Showtime, has been getting a lot of buzz in the mma community as of late. 135 pound champion Sarah Kaufman & top 145 pounder Marloes Coenen are ready to square off to find out not only who will win the title, but who faces 135 grand prix winner Miesha Tate in the next title defense.
Coenen is coming in off a loss to champion Cyborg Santos and even though she is a seasoned veteran, she is the underdog according to bookmakers. Kaufman is coming off an impressive slam ko win over Roxanne Modafferi and has literally fought her way to the main stage.
Fightergirls reporter Veronica LoCurto and WMMA Round-up was on site at the pre-fight press conference to talk to Coenen about her preps for the fight – including her first weight cut to 135; where she stands in the Strikeforce women’s divisions; and her life outside the cage.
