Former UFC fighter Ryan Jensen will replace (11-3) Evangelista "Cyborg" Santos (16-11) and will fight Joey Team Jackson product Joey Villasenor (24-6) at this weekend's Strikeforce/EliteXC show
Strikeforce Vice President Mike Afromowitz confirmed the late replacement.LINK
I hope these are all legitimate dropouts and not Strikeforce/EliteXC following the Japanese promotional strategy of advertising fighters you never intended on having fight on your card to increase interest.
I really like Jensen, it sucks that his two fights in the UFC were against top BJJ guys and couldn't prevent ng sub, but he looked amazing standing-up against Leites. I really wanted to see him against a striker for his second match.
Well you'll get your wish here, no doubt about that...I still don't know if I can go against Joey though... guy is tough as hell!!!!
Good match. More intrigueing imo. Jenson was good, but he got fed to the wolves...then he turned down a matchup with Marvin Eastman...he obviously does not belong in the UFC yet.
...But still I pick him to win this match.
make it 3 losses in a row for jensen i figured he would be dropped after the second lost
