Cristiane ‘Cyborg’ Santos Signs With Invicta FC, Will Debut Against Ediane Gomes

Oh, this? It’s just a video of Gomes beating up some random Brazilian guy, no big deal.

Just one week after Cristiane ‘Cyborg’ Santos asked to be released from her UFC contract, the feared Brazilian striker has already found a new home. There was never any doubt as to where Santos would go once leaving the UFC, but yesterday it was announced that Cyborg has officially signed with Invicta FC.

Cyborg will be making her promotional debut at Invicta FC 5 on April 5. Her opponent will be the other scary Brazilian featherweight, Ediane Gomes, who was originally booked to beat the tar out of Julia Budd. Here’s what you need to know about Gomes: She is 10-2 overall, she is riding a four fight win streak, she most recently beat up Hiroko Yamakana in January, and her last loss came by armbar against Ronda Rousey. Oh yeah, and she once beat up a guy in Rio Heroes, yet none of his friends made fun of him for it (see above).

The winner of this matchup will fight Marloes Coenen – who has been the world’s top ranked female featherweight while Cyborg has been out of action due to her drug suspension - at Invicta FC 6.

Invicta certainly has plans in place for Cyborg, which is something that the UFC simply couldn’t offer her. The question is, how will Cyborg fare in her comeback fight? Will she pick up where she left off in the division, or will Gomes be too stiff of a test for someone who hasn’t fought in over one year? Let us know what you think.

Cyborg won't lose because she's a man, plain and simple.

Also, this whole weight cut thing... Am I a terrible person for thinking there's no way that a woman who's 5'7 or so can't make 135 pounds?

"She walks around at 172" That's ridiculous.

my neighbor's ex-wife makes $62 an hour on the internet. She has been fired from work for 5 months but last month her pay was $15306 just working on the internet for a few hours. Go to this web site and read more

She completely mauled Yamanaka in her last invicta fight, mainly due to her being freakishly strong and aggressive. Should be a good fight with Cyborg.

Going to Invicta is hardly a bad move for Cyborg anyways, so long as she pisses clean she's going to get a hell of alot more fights then she would vs being in the UFC. Regardless of what Dana spews when shit doesn't go his way he's going to want Cyborg working under his banner eventually anyways.

I dunno, I saw around 200 illegal blows and the guy looked like he was completely lost and her striking looked about as weak as Titos management skills and with the same finishing power as the placebo test group for Viagra.
What did you see?

for the sake of her health i hope this video is fake.
Check out 3:07, look at her punches. She tucks her thumbs into her finger.. ANY ONE WHO HAS EVER EVEN THROWN A PUNCH KNOWS NEVER EVER EVER HIT LIKE THAT.. this is stupid.

I think youre not seeing what you think youre seeing.

Lets see, she is managed by Tito, following Titos 'piss of those who write the checks' marketing strategy. Wonder if she training up at big bear and tossing her cock into beat up, hollowed out porn chicks too.
Top to bottom she is not making a single good choice here.

She won't beat Cyborg, and remember Ronda is fighting a can.... She is weak sause, and wants know part of Cyborg... She ran from Cyborgs Division just to dodge her.

So what you're saying is; this won't be the first time she's fought a man

Why be a small fish in a tiny goldfish bowl of a division, when you can be a shark, in a targeted gender specific slightly bigger bowl?

Heh, I hope she beats Cyborg, that would be just perfect.
