Mixed martial arts career 
Santos made his Strikeforce debut June 19, 2009 and headlined the Strikeforce Challengers: Villasenor vs. Cyborg event, but came up short against Joey Villasenor losing by a split decision. In his next fight, he went on to face and defeat Marius Zaromskis, who battled Nick Diaz for the vacant Strikeforce Welterweight Title.
He challenged Strikeforce Welterweight Champion Nick Diaz for the title on January 29, 2011 at the HP Pavilion in San Jose, California. He lost the fight via armbar submission in the second round.
Santos was due to fight Paul Daley at Strikeforce: Fedor vs. Henderson but was forced to withdraw due to a shoulder injury. Santos fought Strikeforce newcomer Jordan Mein on September 10, 2011 at Strikeforce World Grand Prix: Barnett vs. Kharitonov. After a grueling back and forth fight "Cyborg" was defeated by Mein via TKO due to Elbows in the third round handing "Cyborg" back to back defeats, Santos has now suffered his fourth loss in his last six fights.
After a long period of inactivity, Santos requested his release from Strikeforce to fight more consistently. His request was granted.
Santos was expected to face Pete Spratt at Legacy Fighting Championship 17 on February 1, 2013. However Santos was forced to pull out of the bout due to injury and was replaced by Dan Hornbuckle.
