Strikeforce invested of lot of money and effort into pushing female MMA as close to the forefront as possible. It leaned heavily Cristiane "Cyborg" Santos, but now that she's tested positive for an anabolic steroid, even Scott Coker questions how legitimate her entire run has been.
"The thing that's really sad about the 'Cyborg' thing is, it makes you reallyu wonder the validation of all those other fights," Coker said after this weekend's event in Las Vegas.
Cyborg claimed last week that a supplement caused the positive test. Coker won't give her a pass.
"At the end of the day, the athlete has to be accountable for their actions. She's no different," Coker said. "[...] If you're going to cheat you shouldn't be competing against other professional athletes that aren't cheating."
