Breaking News: Manager for Cristiane Santos Confirms New Strikeforce Deal

By Kelsey Mowatt

Despite conflicting reports recently as to whether Cristiane “Cyborg” Santos has departed ways with Strikeforce,  her manager Master Rudimar Fedrigo has confirmed to FCF today that the 145lb. champion has renewed her contract with the promotion.

Although the Chute Boxe founder did not provide any details regarding the contract, Fedrigo did state that he is “very happy” that the fighter is continuing on with Strikeforce.

Late last week Fedrigo informed FCF that he and Santos were still in talks with Strikeforce, despite reports that negotiations between the two parties had broken down. At the time, Fedrigo stated that Santos “really wants to renew with the event” and that it was a “financial issue” that was preventing a new agreement from being reached.

The soon to be 26 year-old Santos hasn’t competed since June, 2010, when she stopped Jan Finney in the second round. The 10-1 fighter has gone 4-0 since signing with Strikeforce.

Stay tuned to FCF for more details as they develop.
