Former Srikeforce champ and InvictaFC vet Marloes Coenen (145.6) returns to action as she takes on Australian Arlene Blencowe (145.8). Coenen (22-6) has won 5 of her last seven fights, including a thrid round submission in her Bellator debut. Blencowe (6-4) has won four straight including a win over InvictaFC’s Faith Van Duin. She is also a world boxing champion.

Neri (6-2) is coming off a 38 second TKO win earlier this year. She was on a six fight win streak before losing back to back fights to Jessica Miele.
