HOT PICS: Cristiane 'Cyborg' Santos - Beach Photo Shoot for Former Strikeforce Champ

2012 has been quite a year for Cris "Cyborg" Santos. After blasting Hiroko Yamanaka, the number two ranked 145-pound female fighter on the planet, in just 16 seconds at Strikeforce: Melendez vs Masvidal in December 2011, it was revealed that Cyborg had tested positive for the anabolic steroid stanozolol. The result of the fight was overturned, Cyborg was suspended for a year and she was stripped of the Strikeforce Womens Featherweight Championship.

On top of her professional turmoil, Cris Cyborg's personal life also crumbled as she separated from her husband and nickname namesake Evangelista "Cyborg" Santos. Now she's Cristiane Justino.

While Cristiane Cyborg waits for the opportunity to return to MMA to restore her image as a fighter inside the cage, the Brazilian bruiser shows off her rarely seen feminine side with this swimsuit photo shoot by Renata Amazonas for Globo.
