Cristiane “Cyborg” Santos recently told Brazilian magazine, Tatame, that a deal is currently in the works to have the dangerous muay-thai striker take on undefeated fighter Gina Carano at an EliteXC event in February. Both fighters are coming off of impressive victories at EliteXC: Heat on October 4th.
“I think it’ll be in February, and it’ll be cool. Everybody wants to see this fight, we both [fought] on the last event and won, and it’ll be great.” Santos told Tatame.
To keep things interesting and exciting, “Cyborg” expects it to be a stand-up war, “I’ll stand with her, and I think she likes it too, so why not? It’ll be a huge fight and someone is going down.”
If the bout is put together, it is expected that the winner would be crowned the new (and first) EliteXC women’s champion.
