Invicta FC 6 results: Cris 'Cyborg' claims featherweight belt with TKO win
(mmajunkie.com)
Top women's featherweight fighter Cristiane "Cyborg" Santos (12-1) added another belt to her trophy case, as she earned Invicta Fighting Championships' inaugural featherweight belt with a fourth-round stoppage of Marloes Coenen (21-6). The bout served as the main event of Saturday's "Invicta FC 6: Cyborg vs. Coenen" event, which took place at Ameristar Casino Hotel in Kansas City, Mo., and aired on pay-per-view. As expected in the heavily anticipated rematch, Santos fired heavy right hands to open, but Coenen slipped underneath them and moved into the clinch. Santos eventually pulled free from the hold and looked to strike before Coenen brought her back into the position. Santos scored a toss from the hold and looked to unleash strikes, but a game Coenen defended well from her back and earned stand-up. Coenen tried to drag Santos to the floor late in the round, but "Cyborg" defended well and remained on her feet before scoring an impressive suplex late in the opening round...

While it’s been seven months since her last fight, former Strikeforce women’s 145-pound champion Marloes “Rumina” Coenen is not worried about the layoff. “My entire career has been time off over and over again. It was always hard for me to get fights, so for me it’s no problem,” Coenen told MMAWeekly.com. “I’ve been setting up my own gym in Amsterdam and then training in the East Netherlands. In preparation for this fight, I stayed with my parents for weeks so I could be focused and train a lot with my time.”
