'Cyborg' Santos Confident Heading Into Carano Showdown

Gina Carano vs. Cristiane Santos has been one of the most talked about fights in MMA over the past year. However, unlike Brock Lesnar vs. Fedor Emelianenko or Georges St-Pierre vs. Jake Shields, this fight is actually going to happen. The female MMA stars will finally meet on August 15 for the new Strikeforce 145-pound title. The event airs live on Showtime.

FanHouse recently spoke to "Cyborg" in New York City where Strikeforce held a press conference to hype the upcoming title match. Check out the full video interview below.
