If Strikeforce is able to renew a deal with Showtime and extend its run on the premium-cable station beyond February, no shortage of storylines is emerging for its female fighters.

Two big ones came out today during a Strikeforce media call.

For one, Strikeforce women's featherweight champion Cristiane "Cyborg" Santos is considering a move down to 135 pounds – a division that could soon see champ Miesha Tate take on fast-rising Olympian Ronda Rousey.

Awesome!!! I think Rousey is the best female fighter on the planet and would beat them both!!!

I guess Cyborg really wants to fight, since there's nobody to fight at 145, might as well make the move down where there are a few fights for her.

I'd say after Cyborg's fight next weekend, I'd say have her fight Kaufman, and have Tate/Rousey fight, winner's of each fight, fight each other. Hell might as well pair the loser's up as well.

If she can make 135, then I'd say go down there. She's just a beast and has no real competition or anyone to fight. Hasn't fought in forever.

I'm surpised they haven't just made a 140 womens division so they could combine both together.

Its not like there is a lot of depth right now in womens MMA.
