    Former Reno resident Gina Carano is returning to mixed martial arts fighting.

    Carano, daughter of Reno casino executive Glenn Carano, is slated to fight on the Strikeforce card June 18 in Dallas, Strikeforce announced in a press release. Glenn Carano is a former Dallas Cowboys quarterback.

    No opponent has been named for Carano. She last fought Aug. 15, 2009, when she lost to Cristiane Santos in the first round.

    Since then Carano has filmed a movie called "Haywire" directed by Steven Soderbergh, who has also directed "Ocean's Eleven," "Erin Brockovich" and "Traffic," among other movies.

    According to IMDB.com, Carano plays a black operations soldier named Mallory Kane who is double crossed and makes it back to protect her family and take revenge on those who double crossed her. The movie also has Michael Fassbender, Ewan McGregor, Antonio Banderas and Michael Douglas. IMDB.com says the film is scheduled to open in August.

    The Strikeforce press release also says she has left the Xtreme Couture camp in Las Vegas, headed by MMA veteran Randy Couture, and is now being trained by Greg Jackson, who has trained UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones and UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre.

    Carano left Reno after the first grade at Jesse Beck Elementary School.

    She also appeared on the television show "American Gladiators" as the character Crush.

    Relax gentlemen, she took a pregnancy test and it was negative...she didn't know she was pregnant, false negatives happen. I played soccer through 4.5 months...

    she didnt know she was pregnant till after she fought... im pretty sure carano is still on the card, but i havent heard any final words on a replacement...


    as to the gina gaining weight thing, shes always had issues with weight... cutting to 145 was always really tough for her... a few times she barely made it... had to strip on stage to make weight... and shes also NOT made weight before too... and as much as i like gina carano, theres absolutely no excuse for not making weight...

    that being said, it can be harder for women to predict and time weight cutting properly... women just fluctuate more than men...


    is she fighting at 145? or 135? 135 will be tough for her, shes a big girl...

    Carano interview

    how come she wasn't asked about her fight w Santos? I mean, no mention at ALL about her first major loss - I can't believe that there wasn't at least one question as to how that loss impacted her outlook, training, fight game, etc.; I think that if she wants to be taken seriously as a professional competitor, she should have to answer the relevant, tough questions about why she got her head handed to her, instead of getting fawned over by some interviewer...

    unless she already gave an interview on the topic, that's different, of course...
