she fought at 135 before and I thought she said she was dropping back down to 135 so she could go to the UFC . Now she is slated to fight the winner of Cyborg vs Gomes. So who knows

Good signing for the girls division, now it's time to sign Marloes Coenen. What's the hold up on signing her I wonder, maybe the golden glory fallout.. she's easily a top 3 girl.

@mikeyg, my uneducated guess is since she's the bigger star and wants to fight at 145 now probably makes negotiations with her take a bit longer ...

Who's she fighting on April 5th ?  Also on Helwanis show she said she has her own gym and shes only lightly affiliated with Golden Glory so I doubt thats stopping her.

Marloes Coenen wont be in the UFC. I think Invicta throws a **** ton of money at her to stay there. Besides her, and Cyborg. Who else will they have after the UFC signs all their 135ers, and 145ers that can drop to 135?

@yossgold, I think that's nuts to even consider Invicta over the UFC girls division at this point. Why go to the smaller org with a girl who already beat your ass in Cyborg, when you could drop a few pounds where you've fought before and possibly beat Rousey and become a superstar. Easy choice for Coenen, the money will come when she wins fights, I really doubt Invicta could pay her more than zuffa but I guess I don't know Invicta's pay scale, probably about 6 or 7k per fight or less.

@TraeBlack I think Invicta will be a good "minor league" for the UFC's 135 division, while at the same time developing the best women in all the other divisons.

I been saying this for a while now. Zuffa is gonna let Invicta find more 135ers, and then they will just offer them the chance to fight on the big stage. Nobody is gonna stay with Invicta when they know they can fight on the UFC. Fighting on Fox, FX or Fuel TV > fighting on a card that gets streamed over the internet.

I hope UFC and Invicta do a joint Female TUF  the winner gets a UFC contract and the rest go to Invicta and have a shot to work towards a UFC contract.

I also think that Zuffa actually working with Invicta is gonna be a good thing for the females of MMA. We all know that the UFC is where they wanna be, but not all of them are ready for the big stage. Give them a few fights in Invicta, and see how they do. Give it a year or 2 tops, and Invicta will either be bought out by Zuffa, or they will actually try and work out some kind of co-promotion type of thing.

Just hope Invicta doesn't give Zuffa %51 (They probably will).  Would hate to see Zuffa shut it down on a whim.

If they do co promote, I dont think Invicta will have much pull. These ladies know where they wanna end up, and so does the people running Invicta. UFC making a 135 division is both the best, and worst thing to happen to Invicta. Best because they will get more shine, and limelight as the UFC womens division does. Worst because they know their fighters will leave them and sign with the UFC as soon as money is on the table. Invicta is gonna have to play this safe if they wanna have a future in MMA lol i think

I don't think Invicta are going to try and compete with the UFC, Shannon's got more brains than that and doesn't have the male ego to send her into Bjorn Rebney land where she'd actually dream that they can ...

I just think that if it took other girls 5 minutes to "consider" the UFC offer, it would take Coenen a day or two due to the extra 10lbs she doesn't want to cut anymore ...

I do think she'll eventually sign ... it was just a guess as to why we haven't seen her name mentioned yet ...

Yea, she might as well sign with them, and join an already stacked womens 135 division. They can also get girls like Leslie Smith, that girl is a animal. Shayna Baszler, Sarah D'Alelio. Once Jessamyn Duke gets a few more fights in, she will be ready. This division is gonna be pretty deep in the next 6-8 months.

I'd like to see the UFC buy Invicta, but keep them as a brand. Whenever there is a big women's title fight, they fight on a UFC card with a co-promotion sort of deal. I haven't thought this idea all the way through though

I think it wont matter if they get bought out, or just somehow stay around. Invicta as a organization wont be going anywhere. Shannon Kapp or whatever her name is, and her team wont go anywhere either. Zuffa big dawgs put females in the UFC because they know it can take off if they do it the right way. Ronda was the face of it all, but behind the scenes, they are getting ready for the long term part off it. I think before its all said, and done. The UFC will have maybe 2-3 female divisions. They already have 135. Next will clearly be 145, thenmaybe they add 125 after doing some serious scouting, and finding the best in the world. Be it in Japan, or Brazil, or anywhere. They are gonna have to search high and low to fight more female fighters. I dont think they will just wanna leave it as one division. Deep down inside, they wanna have Cyborg as a champion. They wanna keep Ronda as one also. Why have them take each other out when more money can be made with having them dominate their respective divisions. There is a reason GSP vs Silva has not happened yet. Invicta is about to spend some serious time with some Zuffa heads, and i think its only gonna get better, and better now that they are actually working with each other, and not going to war like Bellator is trying to do.
