Gina Carano unlikely to fight on March 29

EliteXC female fighter Gina Carano’s name at one point was attached to this past Saturday’s “Street Certified” card but it was later announced by Gary Shaw that she would in fact not be available.

In subsequent interviews, Shaw indicated there was a chance that Carano could fight on March 29 during the company’s scheduled co-promotion with Strikeforce in San Jose.

However, following an appearance by Carano on “Inside MMA” on HDNet, it appears that an appearance by Carano in March is unlikely, according to MMAWeekly.com:

She has one season of Gladiators in the bag and was looking towards a possible return to fighting at the next EliteXC and Strikeforce co-promotion – scheduled for March 29 featuring Frank Shamrock and Cung Le – but according to her comments on the HDNet series Inside MMA on Friday night, fighting in March may not work into her schedule.

Asked when she would make her return to fighting, Carano told co-hosts Kenny Rice and Bas Rutten, “Not soon enough. I might be doing another season of American Gladiators in March and April and then right after that I’d like to jump into a fight.”

In reading her comments, it is good to hear that Carano still has the desire to fight, as there are several people in the industry who have had questions as to whether she’d ever fight again.

As for when she might return, Carano has to tape another season of “American Gladiators” but could be ready to get back to the fight game soon after:

Asked when she would make her return to fighting, Carano told co-hosts Kenny Rice and Bas Rutten, “Not soon enough. I might be doing another season of American Gladiators in March and April and then right after that I’d like to jump into a fight.”
