Gina Carano's Next Fight
Well It's been a long time since I have even mentioned Gina Carano here other than in passing.
But now it looks like she really will be returning to the steel cage.
And it looks as though it will be on June 18th, 2011 at Strikeforce: Overeem vs. Werdum.
Strikeforce heavyweight champion Alistair Overeem will be taking on Fabricio Werdum and Josh Barnett will be facing Brett Rogers.
And sure enough on the card it has "Gina Carano vs TBA".
Who is "TBA" gonna be?
So far Amanda Nunes' manager has denied that it will be her and Meisha Tate has already said that she wants the fight.
Gina started training at Xtreme Couture in Las Vegas, Nevada back in February so she's getting in shape.
She did a promotional appearance for the UFC Personal Trainer for Xbox 360 Kinect, PlayStation Move and Nintendo Wii on March 23rd in New York city.
Oh yeah...Dana doesn't want the women to fight for him, but he has no problem using them to promote UFC stuff.
What a guy.
Gina is finishing up re-shoots on her film Haywire with Channing Tatum, Michael Fassbender, Ewan McGregor, Michael Douglas, Antonio Banderas and Bill Paxton.
Haywire is set to be released in August of 2011.
Is it just me, or does Gina look like she has packed on a few pounds?
