    Default Cris 'Cyborg' signs with Invicta, faces 'India' Gomes on 4/5

    Cris 'Cyborg' signs with Invicta, faces 'India' Gomes on 4/5 - Mixed Martial Arts News

    Cris 'Cyborg' Santos has signed a multi-fight agreement with women’s world championship Mixed Martial Arts promotion Invicta Fighting Championships.

    Cyborg will make her Invicta FC debut against streaking submission ace and Unified Women’s Professional MMA Rankings world No. 2 featherweight Ediane “India” Gomes of Coconut Creek, Fla. via Sao Paulo, Brazil at the promotion’s highly-anticipated, world championship doubleheader event at Ameristar Casino Hotel Kansas City on Friday, April 5.

    The winner of the matchup between Cyborg and Gomes will square off with world No. 1 ranked featherweight superstar Marloes Coenen at Invicta FC 6, on a date to be announced.

    Gomes’ original Invicta FC 5 opponent, Julia “The Jewel” Budd of Port Moody BC, Canada, will now face rising star Fiona Muxlow of Townsville, Queensland Australia on the April 5 card.

    “We are thrilled to welcome Cris Cyborg, arguably the top pound-for-pound female fighter in the world, to our rapidly growing roster of world-class athletes,” said Invicta FC President Shannon Knapp. “Cris’ incredible performances in front of national TV audiences over the last few years have helped put women’s MMA on the radar of the masses and paved the way for others to establish themselves in the sport.”

    The 27-year-old Cyborg is universally recognized as the most devastating striker in the women’s field of MMA fighters, pulverizing her way to 8 (T)KO victories since making her pro debut in 2005.

    Cyborg took her career to new heights in a main event showdown with superstar rival Gina Carano on Aug. 15, 2009, quickly overwhelming and stopping Carano with a barrage of punches in the first round (4:59) of their meeting to become the first-ever Strikeforce women’s world champion in history. The long-awaited fight set a new viewership record for MMA on premium cable channel SHOWTIME.

    “I am excited to finally get back in the cage and to have the opportunity to fight for Invicta Fighting Championships, which has shown a tremendous amount of commitment to furthering the growth of women’s MMA,” said Cyborg. “I will be ready on April 5 for Ediane and I plan to dominate my competition as I’ve done in the past.”

    She has fans? what a sorry bunch they must be, as for Invicta shame on them for hitching thier star to a cheater. Not a good way to build a fledgling brand.

    Good for Cyborg. She knows what weight she feels good at and she's gonna make the most she can out of it. Honestly the UFC isn't stable for women right now, hell if Rhonda loses they can close shop at any moment on the "new womens division". If it's successful they'll probably buy Invicta anyway. Not a bad move if you stop and think about it. As far as her being a "cheater", get over it. Lots of fighters have been popped for using shit, if you're a fan of anyone who had been popped, then you're a hypocrite for hating on cyborg santos.

    "I don't call the fighting in my films 'violent', I call it 'action'. An action film borders between fantasy and reality. If I were to be completely realistic in my films, you would call me a violent, bloody man. I would simply destroy my opponent by tearing his guts out. I wouldn't do it so artistically." ~Bruce Lee
