Cris Cyborg Finally Re-Signs With Strikeforce

Strikeforce women’s middleweight champion Cristiane “Cyborg” Santos has finally reached a deal with Strikeforce following a lengthy negotiation process. Cyborg’s management made the announcement via MMA Rants.

Cris is ecstatic to be staying under the Zuffa umbrella for another year. She would like to thank Strikeforce and Zuffa for the opportunity to prove she is the best 145lb Woman in the world. Cris has been training and is ready to step back into the cage to defend her Strikeforce belt.

Cyborg isn’t sure sure who or when she’s fighting yet, but hopes to get back in the cage very soon. She also may want to squeeze in as many fights as possible before February comes around. That’s when Strikeforce’s Showtime contract runs out and when Lorenzo Fertitta says they will “reevaluate” the future of the organization.
