Cristiane Santos: Female MMA fighter battles male Japanese comedian on game show (Video)

Former Strikeforce female champion Cristiane Santos, who is currently in the midst of a steroids scandal, is seen in this video fighting a male Japanese comedian in a mixed martial arts (MMA) fight on the game show, "Honoo No Taiikukai TV."

It's unclear exactly when this took place, but it's been making the viral rounds today online, which compelled us to share it on MMAmania.com this evening.

"Cyborg" -- who blamed her positive test on a banned "diet aid" -- has not seen action since a 16-second destruction of Hiroko Yamanaka back on Dec. 17, 2011, in San Diego, California. The California State Athletic Commission (CSAC) fined the Brazilian bomber $2,500 and suspended her for one year, pending an appeal hearing next month (April 6, 2012).

In the meantime, Ronda Rousey has assumed her position atop the female MMA landscape, taking out Miesha Tate with a limb-twisting arm bar (see the pic here) to win the Strikeforce 135-pound world championship. It's unclear if Santos, a 145-pound fighter, is willing and/or able to make the drop down; however, it is a juicy showdown that would undoubtedly be an exciting draw if it ever came to fruition.

Santos might want to work on her trip defense if it does -- that "comedian" nailed a very impressive one ... and even had a few solid submission opportunities.

Just saying.
