Villasenor Looks To Smoke Santos

We may finally get to see two of the sport’s most exciting middleweights clash. Evangelista “Cyborg” Santos and Joey Villasenor are likely to meet at Strikeforce’s May event in Tacoma, Washington. During the Q&A portion of an MMA seminar Villasenor presented at Durango Martial Arts (Durango, CO) on March 21 and 22, “Smokin’ Joe” stated that Cyborg was likely his next opponent. Originally set to fight as part of the Frank Shamrock versus Cung Le card in San Jose last March, Cyborg was forced to withdraw due to alleged visa problems in Brazil. Villasenor instead finished Ryan Jensen in the first round that night while Santos suffered an injury TKO loss to Siyar Bahadurzada during Sengoku’s Fifth Battle in September of 2008.
