Cris âCyborgâ Santos is awaiting release from her Strikeforce contract.
The womenâs 145lb champion was ringside for last nightâs fight between Ronda Rousey (135) and challenger Sarah Kaufmam. The fight ended in under a minute with Rousey submitting Kaufman; not long after, Santos took to Twitter and gave the impression that her Strikeforce run is done.

Â Â Â Cyborg is running her Tweets through Google Translator and publishing them verbatim. Would a Portuguese speaker kindly translate them?

Â Â Â "Guys, I'm afraid that fight is not happening. My division no longer exists. I'm waiting to be released from the UFCâ
Strikeforce CEO Scott Coker was quick to discredit the tweets, telling the post-fight press conference that Santos âmust be misinformedâŠ I donât understand why sheâd be saying that since we just had a 145-pound fight on the card tonight.â
