…October 9, 2010 in San Jose! I will be co-main event of the Nick Diaz vs KJ Noons 2: taking on Marloes Coenen. While Marloes’ last fight ended in a TKO loss to Cris “Cyborg” Santos in January – which would seemingly favour me – I am not looking at this as an easy fight. Marloes has a lot of experience and is strong in many different aspects of the fight game.
If you haven’t heard much about Marloes, she is 17-4 (12submissions, 2 TKO’s), out of Amsterdam. Don’t let the submissions fool you, she is also known for her Thai boxing.
For me, I am really excited to be fighting again so soon. It should be a great fight, and will be interesting to see how Marloes feels after making her first cut to 135lbs. My goal is to always finish the fight – and this fight will be no different. Look forward to some exciting exchanges and maybe even a few surprises…but that belt HAS to come back to Canada with me
