“She’s an amazing athlete. I will not deny that, but everybody is a human being with two arms and two legs, so everybody is beatable,” commented the challenger. “Everybody has some flaws in their game, and I did see some flaw in her game.”

Santos, known for her aggressive style, is a product of the Chute Boxe academy in Brazil. She specializes in a relentless Muay Thai style of fighting. Coenen is comfortable on her feet and welcomes a stand-up battle with Santos.

“I’m from the Netherlands, so as you know, Thai Boxing is quite big over there. I think it’s very important for an MMA fighter to be well rounded,” said the Dutch mixed martial artist. “I think I’m well rounded and good enough to take the fight.”

Coenen certainly has better stand up than Gina, but I don't think she'll be able to hanlde Cyborg standing, and especially not on the ground.

I think the main differerence will be in strength. Cyborg is very powerful for a lady of her size.
