When Cristiane “Cyborg” Santos makes her return, it will have been under the tutelage of UFC hall of famer Tito Ortiz. With Ortiz’s known ground and pound, Santos has added a new tool to her arsenal.
“I love ground and pound and Tito is showing me some new things,” Santos on MMA Prime. “He knows everything. I’m in good shape and ready.”
After a yearlong suspension and not looking to drop to bantamweight, the former Strikeforce champion returns at Invicta FC 5. While Santos has been out, she has kept busy training. She takes on Ediane Gomes to see who gets a title shot.
Invicta FC 5 takes place out of the Ameristar Casino Hotel in Kansas City, MO. Jessica Penne defends her atomweight championship against Michelle Waterson in the main event.
