Cyborg Fails to Make Weight for Her Debut in Strikeforce

260_lgCristiane “Cyborg” Santos failed to make 145-pounds last night for her scheduled fight with Hitomi Akano. Fortunately for us, we will be able to watch this anticipated fight tonight on Strikeforce after Akano’s manager, Shu Hirata, and Strikeforce promoter, Scott Coker, were able to come to an agreement. The specifics to the negotiation were not made public but Stoker did say, “I don’t really want to say what the deal is but I think that, let’s put it this way [her] gym will have a much better relationship with Strikeforce than just one fighter.”
The sanctioning of the bout is legal in the State of California with Santos making 150.5 pounds at her second weigh-in attempt at 6:30 pm PST. Akano’s camp believes that Santos never really tried to cut weight and her camp to this for granted knowing that Akano would fight.
