Injured Evangelista Santos out of Sept. 25 Strikeforce headliner with Tim Kennedy
An injury has forced Evangelista “Cyborg” Santos (16-13) out of a scheduled Sept. 25 Strikeforce Challengers main event with fellow middleweight Tim Kennedy (10-2).
Strikeforce executive Mike Afromowitz today told MMAjunkie.com the organization learned of the injury over the weekend (when
Evangelista’s wife, Cris “Cyborg” Santos, defeated Gina Carano for
Strikeforce’s 145-pound women’s title) and that the search is underway
for a replacement.
The injury was first reported by The Fight Network, citing a source close to Showtime, which airs the event.
