MMA NEWS – Poll Results: Did Cris “Cyborg” Santos Damage Women’s MMA With Positive Steroid Test?

January 13, 2012 8:48 am by Pedro Carrasco

In our latest polling here at BJPENN.COM we asked our readers what they thought of last week’s news that Strikeforce featherweight champion, Chris “Cyborg” Santos was suspended, fined and stripped of her title due to a positive steroid test result.

Chris “Cyborg” has been on a tear since entering the sport of Mixed Martial Arts. Her intimidating physique and unrelenting aggression has put her head and shoulders above the rest of the female division. But has she tainted her legacy with the revelation that she may have been cheating?

The California State Athletic Commission tested and found steroids in her system following her most recent contest and as a result fined her $2,500, suspended her for 12-months and Strikeforce stripped her of her title.

So did she damage the sport in regards to the female division?

After 1,704 votes on our poll the consensus is that yes, she did damage the sport of Women’s Mixed Martial Arts.

63.6% (1,084 votes) of our voters clicked the “Yes” option, while 36.4% (620 votes) of voters selected “No, everyone could tell she was using, WMMA will live on.”

So there you have it, stay tuned next week for the next BJPENN.COM poll.

Thank you for participating.
