We're just three days out.
This Saturday night (July 13, 2013) one of the biggest rematches in women's MMA history will go down as former Strikeforce women's featherweight champion Cris Cyborg takes on former Strikeforce women's bantamweight champion Marloes Coenen in the main event of Invicta FC 6 in St. Louis, Missouri.
But before that fight goes down, set aside some time to watch Invicta FC's excellent "Road to Coenen vs. Cyborg," directed and edited by E. Casey Lyndon which features intense training footage, interviews with both fighters and commentary from top MMA journalists like Jordan Breen, Ariel Helwani and Ben Fowlkes as well as some narration by renowned photographer Esther Lin.
Coenen and Cyborg battled each other over three and a half years ago for the Strikeforce featherweight title. Coenen hung tough, but eventually succumbed to a third round TKO, the longest any female fighter has lasted against Cyborg in over seven years.
Since then, both women have been through trials and tribulations with Coenen winning and losing the Strikeforce bantamweight crown while Cyborg was stripped of her title after testing positive for steroids in 2011.
Both have competed once inside the Invicta cage, with Coenen headlining the inaugural Invicta FC 1 event while Cyborg competed at the most recent show. Both have plenty to prove on Saturday night with the inaugural Invicta Featherweight Title on the line.
Invicta FC 6 will be available on pay-per-view for $14.95 and features a 10-fight main card. We'll be covering all the female-fighting action on MMAmania.com.
