The ladies have not been forgotten.Strikeforce CEO Scott Coker said two previously announced eight-woman tournaments, at 135- and 145-pounds, will kick off at the promotion’s Challengers event in April.Strikeforce 145-pound champion Cristiane “Cyborg” Santos and Gina Carano, whom Santos defeated by first-round technical knockout last August in San Jose, Calif., will not compete in the tournaments, said Coker.

I don't think we're going to see Gina fighting any time soon.

The biggest reason is that it's the challengers series...she makes too much money for that. Secondly, have you heard from her? Because I haven't.
