Somewhere in the audience at Strikeforce Los Angeles, Jason High was in attendance and he probably signed a bit of relief when Cyborg Santos TKOd Marius Žaromskis in the first round. I tried to explain what happened to the chick that sat next to me and it consisted of me saying ‘Dude went for a flying knee, got caught, then got caught again on the way down’. She writes for a large MMA magazine and I’m sure you will see that exact transcript in this month’s issue of <Insert large MMA magazine here>.
The coolest thing about the fight was at the end when female Cyborg picked up male Cyborg and hoisted him up to an audience of crazed fans inside the Nokia Theater. Despite losing a controversial split decision to Joey Villasenor this time last year and being injured against Siyar Bahadurzada in Sengoku, the dude really hasn’t lost a fight in over two years. Hopefully we can all see this same bout go down in Japan for the Dream welterweight belt.
