Exclusive: Not So Fast; Source Says Cyborg Has Not Signed With Strikeforce Yet

(Simple solution: Have Cris arm-wrestle Dana for her desired contract)

In spite of a report released yesterday that quoted Cristiane “Cyborg” Santos’ longtime Chuteboxe trainer┬áMaster Rudimar Fedrigo as saying that the Strikeforce Women’s Middleweight champion has re-upped with the now Zuffa-owned promotion, a┬ásource with knowledge of the situation informed today that there is in fact no deal in place at this time.

As was stated previously, the roadblock seems to be the financial terms of the deal.

Santos has not fought for over a year since her contract ran out following her June 26, 2010 win over Jan Finney. According to the source we spoke to, she is still currently speaking with at least one promotions besides Zuffa and is eager to fight so if a deal isn’t reached with Strikeforce soon, the promotion may well lose its best female fighter.

We will have more details on the situation as we receive them.

^Leave the CFL out of this! Yes, Canada's great when you need a punchline or fifty, but Doug Flutie played up there. As did Ricky Williams. As did... uhhhhh... So when's Cyborg fighting Aldo?

I don't really care about women's mma so much. sometimes it's cool just to pass the time, but it's really like the WNBA to me, or that wacky arena football from the north. Plus, if Cyborg wants to be paid like a man, Cyborg should stop tucking and move to the featherweight div.

Maine Blazer seems to be one of the few that appreciated the discount handbag adds. You go girl.

Damn you, Mike, with your "sources" and "knowledge", making me look bad. Why do you have to be so "professional"?

As I understand it, the sticking point is her TRT therapy. Her levels are higher than Nate's.

I care. If she signs with Bellator I won't be able to watch that hot piece of ass in HD since they are on MTV2.
