As much as Strikeforce champ Ronda Rousey wants to fight Cyborg Santos at 135 pounds; it is a fruitless challenge.
Santos not only stated that is is unwilling to go to 135 pounds, but stated since the promotion was eliminating the 145 division; Cyborg wants out of her contract.
“Guys can not believe this fight will happen,” Cyborg tweeted Saturday night. “My (weight) class has no more. I’m waiting for my liberation from (Zuffa).”
Cyborg hinted that InvictaFC could be her new destination if Strikeforce does let her go. Brazil also is an option, as she has been getting a lot of fight offers there.
Cyborg is still on suspension for a positive drug test, which will end in December. The only other possible challengers at featherweight in Strikeforce would be Julia Budd or Germaine de Randamie if the promotion decides to have Cyborg fight in January.
