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.
