Cris ‘Cyborg’ Santos is awaiting release from her Strikeforce contract.
The women’s 145lb champion was ringside for last night’s 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.
“Cris Cyborg @criscyborg
Do not stay sad. God knows all things. Surely at some event that will fight Have my category.
I'm waiting for my liberation from the UFC..

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

"Guys, I'm afraid that fight is not happening. My division no longer exists. I'm waiting to be released from the UFC”
Strikeforce CEO Scott Coker was quick to discredit the tweets, telling the post-fight press conference that Santos “must be misinformed… I don’t understand why she’d be saying that since we just had a 145-pound fight on the card tonight.”
