As expected, Cristiane “Cyborg” Santos will defend her women’s title at “Strikeforce: Fedor vs. Werdum” on June 26th inside the HP Pavilion in San Jose, CA.
Cyborg became the organization’s first female champion after steamrolling Maxim cover girl Gina Carano with a vicious barrage of punches in the 1stRound of their highly anticipated August 2009 affair.
Cyborg defended her belt against Marloes Coenen earlier this year, finishing the game challenger with a series of strikes in the 3rdRound of their matchup.
MMA’s baddest female owns a dominant 9-1 record and has been perfect since dropping her first professional contest.
Here are the other fighters slated/rumored for the Showtime broadcast:
Josh Thomson vs. TBD
Cristiane “Cyborg” Santos (Strikeforce Women’s Champion) vs. TBD
Cung Le vs. Scott Smith
Fedor Emelianenko vs. Fabricio Werdum
