Evangelista “Cyborg” Santos has signed with the Texas-based Legacy Legacy Fighting Championship and is tentatively slated for a February debut.

Sherdog.com confirmed the signing with LFC President Mick Maynard, though terms of the deal were not disclosed. MMAJunkie.com first reported the news on Saturday evening.

A former light heavyweight and middleweight talent, Santos has more recently competed as a welterweight, knocking out Marius Zaromskis in his 170-pound debut two years ago. Since that time, “Cyborg” has fought just twice, failing in his attempt to win the Strikeforce welterweight title from then-champion Nick Diaz in January 2011 and then suffering a technical knockout defeat to Canadian prospect Jordan Mein eight months later at “Barnett vs. Kharitonov.”

The 34-year-old Chute Boxe product has lost six of his last nine overall, though he previously twice contended for the light heavyweight title of defunct British promotion Cage Rage. Santos has earned 11 of his 18 career wins by form of knockout and holds another five triumphs via submission.
