Report: Cris Cyborg to return on February 27 is reporting that XMMA has signed Cristiane “Cyborg” Santos to a one-fight contract with her debut set to take place on February 27 at XMMA 7: Inferno.

Santos gained a great deal of notoriety earlier this year after joining the now-defunct EliteXC. During her short stint with the organization, she amassed a record of 2-0 with impressive victories over Yoko Takahashi and Shayna Baszler.

There was a great deal of talk regarding a future match between Gina “Conviction” Carano and Santos but the bout has been put on the back burner as Santos and Carano are both unable to sign long-term deals with fight promotions until their contractual obligations to currently doormat ProElite are taken care of.

  • Robert says:

    This is probably a way to stay active and earn a paycheck until either Elite is purchased and resurrected or a deal is worked out with Strikeforce and then the fight with Carano will happen. Not sure if Gina is going to have a one fight deal with someone in between also or if she’s going to be filming another season of American Gladiators.

    Good for her. Wishing you luck Cyborg!!!

    I just feel sorry for the girl she fights. Cyborg is a wrecking machine.
