Gina Carano vs. Cris Cyborg to Be for Strikeforce’s First Women’s Title


(Something tells me Cyborg is going to be played up as the villain in this one.)

After months of angling and negotiating, the highly anticipated bout between Gina Carano and Cristiane "Cris Cyborg" Santos has been set for the main event of Strikeforce’s August 15th event in San Jose, as was announced during the broadcast of "Lawler vs. Shields." Now, Strikeforce CEO Scott Coker has confirmed that the match will crown an official female champion for the organization:

“That’s going to be the number one and the number two females fighting in the world. It will be our first Strikeforce female title belt…I think it’s going to be a fight of epic proportions."



No weight class has been announced for the belt yet, which is either because Strikeforce hasn’t yet determined what weight the two scale-haunted fighters will compete at, or because their female bouts will have an even looser approach to weight classes than their men’s bouts. After all, Cyborg basically earned her title shot by beating up a girl who was two weight classes smaller than her. Meanwhile, Nick Diaz is one win away from becoming the Catchweight Champion of the World.

The August 15th card will also feature the lightweight championship rematch between Josh Thomson and Gilbert Melendez, and a possible heavyweight title scrap between Alistair Overeem and Brett Rogers — all supporting a card headlined by two women. You’ve come a long way, baby

What a fucking set of mammy jammy's on this overrated Carano.

If it wasn't for those huge tits people wouldn't be constantly kissing her ass. Which Cyborg is gonna kick.

Surely the winner of this match needs to be matched against Tara LaRosa before she can claim to be the world Champion. Also, how would these women stack up against the quaility female fighters in Europe, Asia and South America? The answer is that we don't know.

We don't want this new sport to finish up like boxing with about a dozen world champions in each weight division. To me the answer seems to be to set up a world wide sanctioning body so there can only be one World Champion in each weight division. FINA would be a good example (runs soccer world wide).

Each continent could have thier own Continental Champion and the World Champion would need to defend his or her title against either a continental champion or a highly rated person from one of the continets to cut down the risk of miss matches.

The various promoters would be sacationed by the world authority thus becoming more acttractive to sponsors which would enable both the promoters and the fighters to make more money from the events.

Wtf Cyborg! Yeah that's steroids or some type of enhancement damage right there. Damn Gina and her fat tits....... Playboy please

I don't really care what weight class they fight at, as long as it's reachable enough for both of them to make it. I just want to know if Strikeforce will step it up and make them fight 5-minute rounds already. And since it's a title fight it should also be a 5 round fight. Let the women have the same rules as men already, otherwise it will always be looked at as bush league.

I must brrrreak you.

.....yeah. With no respect to women's fighting whatsoever, the only reason they called gina "the face of women's mma" is because she is very pretty, well stacked and fights a bunch of tomato cans to pad a perfect record. They don't want to put up the pic of some bull dyke fish taco muncher for the face of women's mma, like 84% are obviously. The other 16% are some chicks trying to cash in on the craze and complete lack of talent in the division. They grew up with brothers or had a couple of relationships end with domestic violence calls and figure 'might as well get paid for it!" They roll around in there like a puppy humping a football and throw wild hooks that couldn't squash a grape all the while saying "Look how much fun we're having!! Doesn't my hair look all cute in corn rows?! Almost like I'm a REAL fighter!!" Gina had a good run, but this other bitch is for real. I think she could be a gatekeeper for the MEN's lightweight division in the UFC. She hit's like a god damn man and isn't playing with her submissions. Last fight I saw her in she knocked the chick out TWICE. I'm not sure where she got her losses, but I bet it was to someone with a dick. You never know in Brazil. Stick to pushing video games and Pontiacs, Gina. Save your pretty face for talk shows and fake a knee injury for this fight, because you will lose.

I get that fucked up Million Dollar Baby feeling when I look at Cyborg... like "that chick would totally paralyze a bitch, on purpose."
Bob Loblaw- June 9, 2009 at 11:33 am
It'll be a great fight, but there is no way Carano is making it out of this fight without her leaving the cage with her face looking like shit
Judo Im Right- June 9, 2009 at 9:22 am
hopefully cyborg gets popped for roids, so she won't have the opportunity to ruin Gina's face ... Gina is skilled and destroys most of her opponents, but cyborg fights like a man she's like a female wand

wouldn't it be waaaaay to soon to see overeem in August, since he broke both hands in a bar fight?
HAL_13- June 9, 2009 at 9:05 am
MY GOOD SIDE WOULD LOVE TO MARRY SWEET GINA CARANO ON ANY GIVIN DAY. MY BAD SIDE WOULD LOVE TO JUST FUCK CRIS SANTOS AS MUCH AS I POSSIBLY COULD. THERE IS JUST SOMETHING ABOUT THAT FUCKING CYBORG CHICK THAT IS HOT, BUT MY GOD IS THAT GINA EVER PERFECT IN EVERY FREAGIN WAY. WOW.........I THINK I COULD EVEN JERK OFF WHILE WATCHING THIS FIGHT. CAN'T FUCKING WAIT.............MY NAME IS HAL, AND I HAVE SPOKEN.

That's what steroids do to women.
Titos Head- June 9, 2009 at 8:29 am
Gina better get her shit together to fight that damn monster
NECROPHYTE- June 9, 2009 at 8:28 am
That's a man baby! I don't know if that's Evangelista Santos or Cris Cyborg Santos.
Cookie Monster- June 9, 2009 at 8:03 am

BeastUnleashed- June 9, 2009 at 7:53 am
Cyborg is so hott.
molky brothers- June 9, 2009 at 7:50 am
Cyborg is just plain nasty, nasty! And speaking of funbags, does anyone know the size of those on Gina? :o
Old_Bald_and_Irish- June 9, 2009 at 7:45 am
Yeah...that didn't take too long to set up this fight.

...what, like a YEAR!
My Fight Wiffa Cheeto- June 9, 2009 at 7:38 am
Women... Headlining an MMA card... sign of the apocalypse #5876321...

Guh... No one likes women beating up each other... unless it's in some jello or k-y.

And no one like men hitting women either, which is obviously the case in this joke of a bout.
Big Shafty- June 9, 2009 at 7:29 am
Now if these two can make weight without "woman problems" it'll be a legit fight.
Fucklord- June 9, 2009 at 7:28 am
Cool lets give a belt to one of the two women who don't have enough respect for the sport or their opponents to ever make weight. It's like they are trying to cash in on women's MMA and bury it all in one fell blow.

The only way they can gain any of my respect is calling a spade what it is and putting these two in a 160+ lbs division and let them fight other fatties or freakshows and leave the real woman fighters out of it
Peppermint Nightmare- June 9, 2009 at 7:25 am
Hate to say it but, RIP Gina.

*Edit

God damn. The more I look at that picture of Cyborg the more I really, honestly think it's reasonable to suspect that she could be a post-op tranny. And I'm seriously not saying that to be funny.
mayhem- June 9, 2009 at 7:21 am
I wanna rest my head right on Gina's fun bags... hmmm.... soft.
C-Bus Allstar- June 9, 2009 at 7:03 am
Haha.. they better set the women's match at a catchweight of unlimited.
BuckWild- June 9, 2009 at 6:47 am
I hope Gina's face doesn't get messed up !
