TV Review: Strikeforce Women’s Featherweight Fight: Gina Carano vs. Cristiane “Cyborg” Santos


Strikeforce Women’s Featherweight Fight between Gina Carano vs. Cristiane “Cyborg” Santos was it was billed to be, a good mixed martial arts fight. From its outset, it was obvious that Cyborg was the more aggressive of the two fighters, immediately going on the offensive and attacking Carano once the match began. Personally, I hoping for a longer competition between the two of them than one round (5 minutes, which we have for you below) but seeing Carano get out of a kimura attempt and hearing people in-the-know cheer when she did was great. The Strikeforce fight at the HP Pavilion on the 15th of August, 2009 was the first loss in Carano’s career (7-1) thus far. Cyborg MMA record is now 8-1. I always wondered what would compel someone with Carano’s looks to put that asset in danger by stepping into the but Carano is a fighter , what she brings to the table has done a lot for women’s mixed martial arts. I hope to see a rematch between Gina Carano and Cristiane “Cyborg” Santos in the future.

    This was funny. It just did not seem right I think i prefer foxy boxing or oil/mud wrestling. Also the rules state that men cannot wear t-shirts so the woman should have to take theres off. I let them mount me any day of the week

    Gina Carano is a beautiful girl though. Check out my links at the bottom of the post.
