Evangelista “Cyborg” Santos has invoked a clause to get out of his Strikeforce contract. Santos has already agreed to fight in Canada with Instinct MMA, according to a report by Tatame.
“I resigned, quit Strikeforce because I signed a six-fight, two-year contract. They gave me two fights and it’s been a year (and) I haven’t fought,” Santos said. “I can’t live like this, spending a year on the ‘fridge.'”
Santos (18-15) last fought in September of 2011, falling to Jordan Mein. He confirmed that he has signed a three-fight deal with Instinct, and will compete on October 21 against Brandon Thatch, a champion within the promotion.
“Then I’ll fight in December and again in February,” Santos said. “They assured me three fights in six months. The event doesn’t have an exclusivity clause, so I can fight in other shows, too.”
