Cyborg malfunctions…

…well kinda. Cristiane “Cyborg” Santos had a dominating win against Josh Barnett student, Shayna Baszler during EliteXC’s show on July 26th. Baszler was close to a knee bar in the first round but opted to attempt a toe hold which didn’t pan out. Santos escaped and continued her barrage of strikes until the end of the round. Baszler seemed gassed out during the second and at with 1:31 left in the round (5:16 of the video) Santos drops Baszler with an impressive flurry of punches. Cyborg struts away and starts an intense celebration. She jumps to the top of the cage, and cheers. This goes on for about 30 seconds until she finally gets it through her caveman (yes, man) skull that the fight isn’t over. Baszler hit the mat but was not out. Unfortunately, this wasn’t enough time for her to catch her breath and Santos finished the fight soon after.
I can only hope she lost a fan or two after her little display showed that she’s more concerned with looking bad ass after a knockout than finishing the fight.
