Strikeforce lands "Cyborg," Carano could be next

Cristiane "Cyborg" Santos has reportedly signed a world-exclusive, four-fight deal with Strikeforce, and Gina Carano is now in talks to also sign a deal with the organization.

"Santos will fight on one of our next two cards," Strikeforce Director of Communications Mike Afromowitz told Sherdog.  The next Strikeforce event will be on April 11 in San Jose, and the next show after that one could be in May.

Carano has been invited to fight on the April card, and it's likely the two sides are trying to work out money issues -- Carano was paid just $25,000 for her victory against Kelly Kobold in October.

It'd be a tragedy to see Cyborg sign with Strikeforce and Carano sign with a different organization, even though that seems rather unlikely at this point.

Assuming they both end up on the April card, they won't be fighting each other, though it's a matchup that will obviously take place in the future if they both are victorious.
