Video: Cristiane 'Cyborg' Santos vs. Marloes Coenen Invicta FC 6 title fight
Invicta FC crowned its first featherweight champion on Saturday with a pay-per-view headliner and rematch between Cristiane “Cyborg” Santos and Marloes Coenen.
The five-round bout, which helped mark the organization’s move from online to traditional PPV, took place at Ameristar Casino Hotel in Kansas City, Mo.
Santos (12-1) earned a TKO victory in the first meeting at a 2010 Strikeforce event, and she looked to do it again when she rematched Coenen (21-6) this past weekend at the July 13 event.
