Next year. The company announced that it plans to have the female dream matchup of Gina Carano vs. Cristiane "Cyborg" Santos on EXC's first PPV early next year, and not on CBS. Said another way, the company needs these two to meet when EliteXC, not CBS, can reap the greatest reward.

Elite XC new business model=Make Money?!

Whats with the change? Things seamed to be going so well.

In all seriousness, I don't see Elite XC making it until next year. My bold prediction- We'll see Carano/Cyborg as the first female fight for Affliction.

Gina can definetely get some viewers to tune into CBS, but she's not going to get people falling over themselves to pay for a main event on PPV featuring her. It's just not going to happen.

I'll admit I'm a little more intrigued with woman's MMA after watching some of Gina's fights, but I'm just intrigued. Not salivating over them.

i hope Cyborg can expose Gina in their fight. Gina is a great MT fighter and i give her all the respect in the world for her MT accomplishments but i am really getting annoyed at her weight problems. if she misses weight for one more fight, she should get fired.

I think her rank as #1 sexiest female fighter may be in jeopardy after this fight
