Everywhere you look, chicks are headlining fight cards these days. February had Rounda Rousey defending her world title in a UFC pay per view main event and now Invicta FC has announced their latest main event – a rematch between Cristiane “Cyborg” Santos and Marloes Coenen Pretty sweet, if you ask us.
Invicta always has a women’s bout as their headliner, of course, because they are an all Women’s MMA organization. As such, they’ve created new opportunities for female fighters to make a living and show how the females are not just the fairer sex, they might also be the fiercest.
Just as cool as what Invicta is doing, the formerly all-male MMA organization, the UFC, now has one women’s division and title, with more hopefully on the way. Last week, Meisha Tate and Cat Zingano tore down the house with their fight of the night on the UFC’s last Fuel TV card. That was on the heels of February’s UFC pay per view main event title bout between Ronda Rousey and Liz Carmouche.
It was a one-round barn-burner that made the UFC a ton of money and got organization President Dana White singing a different tune about women’s MMA. With the rematch between Cyborg (aka. The woman we really want to see face Rousey in the UFC, thanks a lot, career-managing-hands of Tito Ortiz) and Coenen, we’ll at least get to see the former women’s MMA Queenpin Santos back in action again right away and against another dangerous kickboxer who at least has proven she can last more than 30 seconds against the Brazilian.
