Marius Zaromskis vs. Evangelista Santos Planned for “Strikeforce: Los Angeles”

Marius ZaromskisA welterweight matchup between DREAM champ Marius Zaromskis and Evangelista “Cyborg” Santos is slated to take place on June 16 at “Strikeforce: Los Angeles,” MMA Fighting reports.

Zaromskis (13-4) won the DREAM title with back-to-back first-round knockouts of Hayato Sakurai and Jason High last July, but had his five-fight win streak snapped in a January loss to Nick Diaz for the vacant Strikeforce welterweight belt.

Santos (17-13), the husband of 145-pound women’s champ Cristiane “Cyborg” Santos, made his Strikeforce debut last June with a split decision loss to Joey Villasenor, but rebounded with a first-round knockout at a December Samurai Fight Combat event.

The non-title bout is expected to be featured on the event’s Showtime-televised main card, which is headlined by Robbie Lawler vs. Renato “Babalu” Sobral and also includes KJ Noons and Bobby Lashley.
