Cyborg Santos knocks out Marius Zaromskis in three minutesPosted on June 16, 2010, 11:12 PM by Anton Gurevich
Mixed Martial Arts veteran Evangelista “Cyborg” Santos returned to the Strikeforce cage, this time facing “The Raging Demon” Marius Zromskis.
Both fighters are well-known for their exceptional striking skills, but surprisingly it was the Brazilian who had the more patient approach in this fight. Dream Welterweight Champion Marius Zaromskis failed to find his range, allowing Santos to punish him with punches and kicks.
The Brazilian delivered a shattering high kick to Zaromskis’ head, forcing the Lithuanian to do an unnecessary act of desperation. Somehow reminding Andrei Arlovski, Zaromskis decided to throw a flying knee, meeting nothing but Cyborg’s punch. Zaromskis immediately landed on the ground directly to the rain of Cyborg’s ground and pound, forcing the ref Herb Dean to stop the contest.
It is a second knockout loss to Marius Zaromskis, and a second victory for Evangelista Santos. The Brazilian improves his record to 18-13, as a fight against KJ Noons for the shot at Nick Diaz could provide tons of excitement. The official time for this contest is 2:38 minutes of Round 1.
