Quoteworthy:

"If I win the title, I’d like to fight Miesha Tate. She won the tournament, so it will be a good fight. I want to defend the title a few times, and then I want to move back up to 145 (pounds). After I have a few fights [at middleweight], I definitely want [to fight Cyborg] again. In my heart, I feel like I can handle her."

Strikeforce women's 135-pound number one contender Marloes Coenen has some lofty goals heading into tonight's (Oct. 9) title fight against Sarah Kaufman. If "Rumina" can manage to dethrone the undefeated champion in San Jose, she's looking to a future that includes a successful title defense against Miesha Tate followed by a return to 145-pounds to rematch Cristiane Santos. The Dutch damsel was definitely in distress during their first go-round and despite a valiant effort, Coenen was pounded out in the third round. Anyone expecting a different result in take two? Or will Kaufman or Tate make sure she never has the chance to find out?
