Strikeforce Miami: Marloes Coenen isn't going to let Cris Cyborg walk right through her

Quoteworthy:

"Her strength, of course, is her physique. She's a real powerhouse. She's really good at throwing combinations -- she doesn't just throw one kick and one punch. She tries to walk right through you. I see some weaknesses, but I'm going to keep those to myself until the 30th."

Marloes Coenen stands unfazed in the wake of Cristiane Santos' recent destruction of the Strikeforce 145-pound division, including a first round ass kicking of MMA mega-star Gina Carano last August. The Dutch Dame is confident her ability to expose the weaknesses of Santos will unplug "Cyborg's" title reign at the upcoming "Miami" event on Jan. 30 and a win would make her the second fighter from the Netherlands (Alistair Overeem) to hold Strikeforce gold in 2010. Hopefully she doesn't follow in his footsteps when it comes to title defenses. Does she stand a chance against the Brazilian bruiser?
