An injury has forced middleweight Evangelista "Cyborg" Santos (16-13) out of a scheduled Sept. 25 Strikeforce Challengers main event with Tim Kennedy (10-2).

Strikeforce executive Mike Afromowitz today told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) the organization learned of the injury over the weekend (when Evangelista's wife, Cris "Cyborg" Santos, defeated Gina Carano for Strikeforce's 145-pound women's title) and that the search is underway for a replacement.

They could put Mrs. Cyborg in and most casual fans wouldn't know the difference.

Beat me to it. lol

I'm wondering if he ruptured a nut after Cris led him to believe she was pregnant? From what I understand he didn't take that news to well before they decided to play the same trick on Coker.

Is Kennedy a Quest fighter? If so that rules out Lindland and maybe Lawler.

Id like to see Tim Kennedy vs Scott Smith, or Ninja Rua

They should both be due to fight again soon
