Former Strikeforce 145lb women's champ Cristiane "Cyborg" Santos has separated from her husband, Strikeforce welterweight Evangelista "Cyborg" Santos according to a report from Brazilian web site UOL Esporte Lutas. UOL posted the following message from Cris to her fans:

After six years of dedication to love and to happiness of marriage, I would like to inform that since December of 2011, Evangelista Cyborg and I are living our lives separately. I'd like to thank all friends for words of support during this period. No matter how hard it feels never give up on your dreams and never give up in love!

A big hug,
Cris

Mrs. Cyborg was suspended and stripped of her title following a drug test failure after her last fight. Mr. Cyborg has lost his last two fights to Nick Diaz and Jordan Mein and has no announced fights coming up. There is no word on who will get the nickname in any potential divorce settlement.

Our best wishes to both fighters during this difficult time.
