Former Strikeforce welterweight title challenger Evangelista Santos has found a new home in Legacy FC. Officials for the Texas-based promotion officially announced the signing of “Cyborg” earlier today.
While terms of the deal were not disclosed, Santos is expected to make his promotional debut come February. The Chute Boxe product has spent 13 months on the shelf, prompting him to ask for his release from the promotion. Santos leaves Strikeforce behind back-to-back losses to then champion Nick Diaz and Jordan Mein. Prior to that skid, the Brazilian took consecutive knockouts over Daniel Zarate and Marius Zaromskis.
