Cristiane “Cyborg” Santos Doesn’t Intimidate Ediane Gomes

Ediane Gomes has her biggest test to date when she meets former Strikeforce featherweight champion Cristiane “Cyborg” Santos. Usually Gomes relies on her jiu-jitsu, but plans to exchange punches when they meet for Invicta FC.

“If you fall, you fall,” said Gomes to TATAME. “Cristiane has a name that scares all the girls. I respect her, but she is a fighter like me. She has two legs and two arms. She is a woman like me. I do not run.”

Santos comes into the fight after a yearlong layoff due to a suspension for steroids. She was released from her Zuffa contract after not being willing to cut down to bantamweight.

Gomes has fought on the last two Invicta FC shows, taking a decision and submission win. She has four wins since 2011.

They meet at Invicta FC 5 from the Ameristar Casino Hotel in Kansas City, MO. Streaming information has not been made public.
