Former Strikeforce featherweight champion Cristiane 'Cyborg' Santos has a new opponent for her first fight in 16 months.
Santos (10-1, 1 no-contest) was originally slated to meet Ediane Gomes at Invicta 5 on April 5 in Kansas City. But the promotion announced Gomes had to pull out of the fight due to a rib injury suffered in training.
Instead, Santos will face Australian Fiona Muxlow. Muxlow, a native of Townsville, Queensland, is 6-2 in her MMA career. In her most recent fight, she was submitted by women's MMA pioneer Marloes Coenen on Dream's New Year's Eve card in Japan.
Muxlow was originally slated to make her Invicta debut against Julia Budd on April 5. As of this writing, Invicta is looking for a new opponent for Budd.
