All-female fight promotion Invicta FC didn’t waste any time finding a new opponent for Cristiane Santos after the former Strikeforce champion’s original adversary, Ediane Gomes, went down with an injury while training for their April 5 tilt. Stepping in for the Brazilian grappler will be Fiona Muxlow.
Officials confirmed the change to Invicta FC 5 earlier this week.
Muxlow is 6-2 with three submissions to her credit. Comparably, “Cyborg” holds an overall mark of 10-1 but hasn’t fought in more than a year after being suspended for steroid use.
