Quoteworthy:

"The (Santos) loss didn't make me decide to fight at 135 lbs. I still want to fight Cyborg again, because the fight was stopped too early. I do understand it from the referee. Men do not like to see women get hurt. In the next Cyborg fight the referee was a woman. Well, you now can conclude that women do not mind seeing each other hurt. If she wants to clinch I'm fine with that. I like clinching. After the Cyborg fight I think that I have proven to be able to take a punch. I think that Sarah and I are both fierce so it will be an explosive fight."

Former women's 145-pound number one contender Marloes Coenen keeps here contender status after dropping down a division to challenge undefeated champion Sarah Kaufman at the upcoming Strikeforce: "Diaz vs. Noons II" event in San Jose. "Rumina" is hoping to get a rematch with "Cyborg" Santos in the near future to prove she's got the goods to claim the Brazilian's gold. But can she first get past the Canadian on Oct. 9?
