Marloes Coenen: Cris Cyborg Is Not God

Coenen enters Saturday night's title fight a heavy underdog, but she appears genuinely confident heading into what is undoubtedly the toughest fight of her career.

MMA Fighting spoke to Coenen at the Strikeforce: Miami media day about why she is so confident heading into this fight, the weaknesses in Cyborg's game and what this moment means to her. The video interview is below.
