Video: Behind the scenes as Cris 'Cyborg' tops Marloes Coenen for Invicta title
Marloes Coenen (21-6) is a remarkable MMA fighter and one of the few female competitors with more than 20 wins. The fact Cristiane “Cyborg” Justino (12-1) so easily dismantled her served as a bit of a wakeup call this past weekend.
Following the Invicta FC 6 pay-per-view headliner, where Justino claimed the organization’s inaugural featherweight title, Invicta has released “All Angles: Cris Cyborg.”
The video, produced by the AllElbows.com team, takes readers behind the scenes and into the cage for the lopsided July 13 title fight, where Santos, a former Strikeforce champion, picked up her 12th straight win and her second major championship.
Check out the video above.
