The long anticipated fight has been finalized for the August 15th on Strikeforce; Gina Carano vs. Cris “Cyborg” Santos. The announcement was made last night during the Strikeforce: Lawler vs. Shields event on Showtime.
Cyborg is coming off a TKO win over Hitomi Akano back in April on a previous Strikeforce card and may very well be one of the best pound-for-pound female fighters in the sport.
Carano is 7-0 in MMA and has been anticipating this fight for quite some time. Her last fight was back in October of ’08 with a unanimous decision over Kelly Kobold on EliteXC.
