Cris Cyborg posted a picture of ex-husband Evangelista 'Cyborg' Santos online asking fight fans for prayers. Her post also asked fans to contribute to a GoFundMe account for her ex-husband, since no one really knows how long it will be before Santos is able to return to the ring.

The injury was sustained when Santos took a flying knee to the forehead in his Bellator 158 match against Michael Page. After the flying knee, Santos fell to the mat holding his head in pain. Michael Page then dawned a Pokemon hat and rolled a pokeball at Santos as part of his victory celebration.
