This is one of the few and rare occasion of two female fighters headlining a major MMA event. Gina Carano is the former undefeated Women’s 140lbs Champion that use to be part of EliteXC. And the challenger is Christiane ‘Cyborg’ Santos, the Muay Thai specialist that heralds from the famous Chute Boxe Academy. The two will fight for Strikeforce’s vacant women’s 145lbs title.
These two fighters are Muay Thai specialist so expect to see a stand-up fight that can go all five rounds. The edge in the stand-up will go to Cyborg because of her extensive Muay Thai competition background, but Carano is very well-rounded and she can take the fight to the ground if she needs to. This will be a very competitive fight with two very talented fighters and it truly deserves to headline in any MMA promotion.
