“We’re going to continue supporting women’s MMA and we’re going to be inviting Gina to come fight on April 11. And we’ve already got confirmation from Cyborg that she is available if we can put that match together. We will be supporting women’s MMA in Strikeforce.”
– Strikeforce President Scott Cokerpledges his support for Woman’s MMA.
Coker has been working feverishly behind the scenes to put together what would be seen as the biggest fight in the history of Woman’s MMA; a matchup between undefeated media darling Gina Carano and the highly skilled and dangerous Brazilian Cris Cyborg.
Coker announced last week that Cyborg had signed with the organization with the intent of facing Carano. And sources have indicated that the company is working hard on securing the fight for it’s first Showtime event this April 11.
The show looks to add Carano vs. Cyborg to previously announced match-ups featuring former UFC champion Frank Shamrock going up against Nick Diaz and Scott Smith facing off against Benji Radach.
