WMMA Today gets you caught up on the week that was and the week that will be in women’s MMA.


– Strikeforce Women’s Featherweight Champion Cristiane “Cyborg” Santos has been suspended for 1 year and fined $2,500 from a failed drug test after her December 17th title defense over Hiroko Yamanaka. The CSAC also over-turned the decision to a no-contest. Cyborg released a statement apologizing to her fans, Strikeforce and Hiroko. She also stated the positive test was due to a dietary supplement.

—Weekend Results—

1-6 10th ranked Bantamweight, Kaitlin Young (7-5) put on a Muay Thai clinic in her TKO victory over Anna “Smiles” Barone (2-3) at Driller Promotions: “Downtown Showdown 2”. Young repeatedly scored from the outside with punches and kicks, and once inside she delivered vicious elbows, opening a cut that would eventually bring the bout to a stop at the end of the second round. Young has now won 3 of her last 4 fights.

—Upcoming Fights—

1-13 Michelle Ould and Tonya Evinger are listed to fight at the Fight Me MMA event in St Louis; however, no opponents have been determined.
