DREAM champion Marius Zaromskis took a beating from Evangelista "Cyborg" Santos that was merciful only in its brevity, getting the TKO win in the first round.

Santos caught Zaromskis with a punch to the chin as Marius was coming in on a flying knee and followed with hard shots on the ground.

There was a lot of speculation going into this fight that the legendary brawler Cyborg might not handle the huge weight cut to make welterweight. He showed at the expense of Marius Zaromskis that he might have found his ideal fighting weight at 170 pounds.

This marks Zaromskis second consecutive loss in Strikeforce, both brutal TKO stoppages.He should really consider cutting down to lightweight as he was dwarfed by both Cyborg and Nick Diaz, his previous opponent.

Santos has made a huge step towards revitalizing his career with this high profile win. Strikeforce's thin welterweight division means its a short step to contention for Cyborg. But many fans will be tempted by a fantasy Cyborg vs Melvin Manhoef rematch. Their first match is seen by many as the greatest brawl in MMA history.
