Cristiane 'Cyborg' Santos Also On January Strikeforce Card

Yahoo! Sports is reporting:

Santos is expected to make her first title defense after defeating Gina Carano in August for Strikeforce’s first-ever female belt. The hard-hitting Brazilian has been inactive since the contest while recovering from a shoulder injury.

Santos is expected to meet Dutch fighter Marloes Coenen, who defeated Roxanne Modafferi on the preliminary card of Strikeforce and M-1 Global’s “Fedor vs. Rogers” event earlier this month. Strikeforce CEO Scott Coker told MMAjunkie.com that the bout was considered a No. 1 contender matchup.

Coenen won the fight with Modafferi in under two minutes so she should be in good health heading into the showdown.

Yahoo! also added more to the Herschel Walker news:

The former Heisman Trophy winner and two-time Pro Bowl running back signed with Strikeforce in September, and he is expected to train at California’s American Kickboxing Academy in preparation for the contest.

Walker is a longtime practitioner of traditional martial arts. The former football star is a sixth-degree black belt in tae kwon do who has also trained in Muay Thai and Kenpo karate.
