MMA Women - Marloes Coenen

MMA Women - Marloes Coenen

Marloes Coenen (born March 31, 1981 in Olst, Netherlands) is a Dutch mixed martial artist. Her brothers and grandfather were both into martial arts, the latter having taken jujitsu twenty years earlier, which aided her own transition into the sport. She started training with Martijn de Jong at Shooto Holland while only 14, who recalls "I really had respect for that, because it didn't matter if it rained or snowed. She still kept on coming." She has said in an interview with Martial Arts News Magazine that she is keen to fight Erin Toughill, whom she calls the "personification of arrogance."

Her last fight was a win by submission against Yoko Takahashi at Shooto-G on March 11, 2006. Along with her competitive career, she is planning to study communications sciences in Amsterdam with a view to employment in that sector.
