Invicta FC 6 Recap: Cyborg Terminates Coenen For Featherweight Crown


Invicta FC 6 got off to a pretty rough start after Livia Von Plettenburg missed weight by an astonishing 8lbs. She ended up having Kathina Catrone step in on one  days notice to fight her, then during the warm up on fight night Tamikka Brents suffered a knee injury which caused her bout against Ediane Gomes to be scrapped.

Eventually the card went down and put on some pretty decent fights. In the main event, Cris ‘Cyborg’ Santos battled Marloes Coenen for the inaugral Invicta FC FW title. The bout was as one sided as you could imagine. Cyborg stuffed all of Coenen’s takedown attempts and basically bullied Coenen throughout the bout. She scored multiple slams and knockdowns, en route to a nasty fouth round TKO win.

The real question following the victory is when will Cyborg sign with the UFC? Neither Cyborg or Ronda Rousey will ever be the undisputed queen of WMMA without first facing one another. That’s my opinion, but I imagine it’s in the back of both of their minds too.

  • Just an observation…couldn't they find a white sandy beach in rio for cyborg to take the photo shoot. It looks like they were low on budget and used the local creek.

    Cyborg has to come back to the UFC but Dana has to write out a cheque bigger than $8,000.

  • i thought it was wanderlei in a bikini for a second

    • Did you get excited? 8P

  • Cyborg looked like a f*cking ANIMAL last night… and those throws and slams were nasty… Say what you want but whatever Tito is doing, is working.

    • I didn't get to see it man, but I can imagine some wrestling would help her immensely.
      I have a feeling many will root for Cyborg if she faces Rousey.

      • You should google the fight… she put a WHOOPIN on Coenen and her TDD was great… she had greatly improved wrestling. Threw Coenen around like a f*cking ragdoll all night….

        • You can watch the fight on youtube (for as long as they keep it up)

          • Thats cool, if she had lifted straight back, she would have had dual suplexes. Shes strong as h3ll.
