Marloes Coenen will indeed face a past opponent at Strikeforce on Nov 7 as Roxanne Modafferi has stepped in to replace Erin Toughill in the women's fight that will remain on the undercard for the show, which could crown the next contender for a shot at champion, Cris "Cyborg" Santos.
The news was confirmed to MMAWeekly.com by sources close to the fight on Thursday. Bout agreements are expected to follow shortly.
Usually fighting around 135lbs, Modafferi will go up in weight to face the bigger Coenens.
Wow...congrats Roxy!!! This is a huge opportunity! Get it done!
Roxy beat Marloes by decision in 2007.
native son -I hope 135 is the eventual home for Roxy in Strikeforce.
if roxy wins will she fight cyborg? lol
Congrats Roxy !!
Lol, when Toughill dropped out, literally the first thing I thought was "maybe Roxanne will step in". Too bad it's on the undercard.
Hope Roxy kicks ass!
WOW! Go Roxy! I like her style. :)
Congrats Roxy. Kick ass!!
This was from her Twitter page last night. Congrats Roxy!
Good luck Roxy!!
