Marloes Coenen puts her Strikeforce welterweight belt on the line in her first title defense tonight, taking on undefeated (5-0) Liz Carmouche. Many expect the veteran Coenen to prevail over new prospect Carmouche, who was given the shot after number one contender Miesha Tate had to pull out of the fight.
This vid gives us a candid look at Coenen in the lead-up to fight night. Fast-forward to 3:3o to see her tearing up the focus mitts.[youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9UC-47RAznc?rel=0&w=640&h=390] [Courtesy of All Elbows]
