The Strikeforce mixed martial arts promotion has not yet finalized a deal with MMA's most popular female fighter, Gina Carano. But it does have a deal in place with the woman everyone wants to see Carano to fight, Christiane "Cris Cyborg" Santos. And Strikeforce founder and CEO Scott Coker told me Wednesday that there's a 50-50 chance a deal with Carano will get done in time for the Carano-Cyborg fight to take place on April 11.
Coker said Cyborg will definitely appear on the card, and the only question is whether Carano will agree to be Cyborg's opponent.
