Marloes Coenen and Liz Carmouche battle at StrikeforceThe Glory/Dream New Year’s Eve event from Saitama, Japan, is just around the corner, and while American broadcasting details are still being nailed down, one more high profile MMA bout has been added to the card.

Former Strikeforce women’s 135-pound champion Marloes Coenen will make her way to Japan to face Fiona Muxlow on the Dream portion of the event at Saitama Super Arena, according to MMAWeekly.com sources.

Coenen (20-5) has seen little activity since losing her Strikeforce belt to Miesha Tate in mid-2011. She fought once for Invicta FC, defeating Romy Ruyssen by unanimous decision in April of this year.

Muxlow, fighting out of Australia, has a solid 6-1 record, but this will mark the first time she’s fought outside of Australia or New Zealand, and Coenen is by far the toughest opponent she’s ever faced.

The two will be part of the Dream MMA rules bouts when the promotion is resurrected on New Year’s Eve in Japan.

The event will air in the United States on the CBS Sports Network. The Glory kickboxing portion of the event will broadcast on Dec. 31 on the network, while the Dream MMA bouts hit the airwaves on Jan. 1.

Independent MMAWeekly.com sources confirmed that CBS Sports Network is hosting the American broadcast of the event, which was first reported by MMAFighting.com.
