Welcome 6th round fans to my picks and predictions for Strikeforce: “Carano vs. Cyborg”. Tomorrow night we are treated to a spectacular card when Showtime once again holds Strikeforce on their network. The main event will be historic as the first time ever we are treated to a female bout.
The face of women’s MMA Gina “Conviction” Carano will face her toughest opponent when she battles 7-1 Cristiane “Cyborg” Santos. This will determine if Carano retains her crown as the best female fighter in the world or will Santos defeat her and be the most dominant female in MMA. Check out my picks and see if you agree. Let’s get it on!
Picks outcome: 6-3
Gina “Conviction” Carano vs. Cristiane “Cyborg” Santos: I was convinced Cyborg will take this fight but I think Ginas tenacity will win this fight. Gina by decision

Since the site has gone live I am at a dismal 53-41 in picks due to a truly awful showing for WEC 42 “Torres v. Bowles” prediction. I am feeling comfortable in these picks so tomorrow night live from the HP Pavilion in San Jose California it will be SHOWTIME =)
