In an interesting twist of fate, we maybe seeing Marloes Coenen on Spike TV.

Dave Meltzer of MMAFighting.com reported that Glory and Spike TV were in talks to bring kickboxing to the network after K-1′s deal fell through. Glory is coming off a successful co-promotion with DREAM this past New Years Eve, which aired on CBS Sports Net, a sister network to Spike. Bellator CEO Bjorn Rebney stated they were a part of the talks and cross promoting fighters (and sharing fighters) was something they would do if the deal was inked.

Rebney would be foolish not to ask the #1 Unified ranked Coenen (who is under the Glory banner) to fight for Bellator, even if this was only once or twice a year in a non-tournament bout.

The negotiations are still continuing, but we will update if the deal is finalized.
