Maybe the change of scenery will do Marloes Coenen some good. Just over three years ago, "Rumina" went toe-to-toe with Cristiane Santos Justino at Strikeforce: "Miami," losing by way of third-round technical knockout (TKO). As luck would have it, "Cyborg" followed her to the Invicta FC promotion and they'll hook 'em up for a second time this summer. And, once again, the 145-pound title will be on the line.

That appears to be water under the bridge, at least for now. Invicta FC 6 is expected to take place this summer; however, a date and location has yet to be determined. As always, keep it locked into and we'll bring you all the relevant details as soon as they become available.,
