Strikeforce releases highlight video featuring Melendez, Masvidal, and Santos

Recently Strikeforce struck a new deal with Showtime that will keep the company on the network for at least eight more events in 2012. While the deal doesn’t officially kick off until a January 7 show, there is a major Strikeforce event this weekend featuring lightweight champion Gilbert Melendez taking on top contender Jorge Masvidal in headlining action. Plus, the most feared female fighter in the sport, Cristiane “Cyborg” Santos, is back in action and will be defending her featherweight belt against 12-1 grappler Hiroko Yamanaka.

To promote this weekend’s event, the promotion has released a highlight mash-up featuring the greatest hits from Melendez, Masvidal, and Santos. Also on the card, but not featured in the video, are light heavyweights Gegard Mousasi and Ovince St. Preux along with lightweights K.J. Noons and Billy Evangelista. The action kicks off this Saturday, December, 17, on Showtime at 10:30PM EST.

    Come on UFC. Just finish SF and bring Melendez and co into the fold. I would pick him to take the belt but who knows. JZ, Thompson, Kawajiri, Aoki and Masvidal would also be fantastic additions.
