Lose a title fight, get another title fight?
That is precisely the good fortune that was recently bestowed upon Marloes Coenen.
After sustaining a TKO loss at the hands of Cris Cyborg in January 2010 at 145 pounds she will take advantage of yet another opportunity at gold.
This time, however, she will make the trek down to 135 pounds and challenge undefeated champion Sarah Kaufman.
The pair will do battle in Strikeforce’s backyard at the HP Pavilion in San Jose, California on Saturday, October 9.
In the meantime, “Rumina” took some time out of her schedule to discuss moving down in weight, Kaufman, Dutch culture, and her hatred for Twitter.
