Marloes Coenen Strikeforce Champ

Undefeated Liz Carmouche has replaced injured Miesha Tate and will challenge 135-pound women’s champ Marloes Coenen for her title at “Strikeforce: Feijao vs. Henderson.”

Tate was forced to withdraw from the on March 5th event after suffering a knee injury during training.

Carmouche will be making her third start for the San Jose, California promotion. She is coming off an impressive 3rdRound TKO win over Jan Finney this past November.

“Girl-Rilla” has only gone the distance once in her career.

Coenen will make her first appearance since capturing the title last October in a submission victory over Sarah Kaufman.

“Strikeforce: Feijao vs. Henderson” takes place inside the Nationwide Arena in Columbus, Ohio. Showtime will broadcast the main bouts at 10PM ET/PT.
