Gina Carano returning to Strikeforce

The most popular female fighter in MMA history is finally returning. Gina Carano announced that she will indeed fight again for Strikeforce. No date or opponent has been announced but Strikeforce CEO Scott Coker is hoping that she will compete in June.

Carano made the announcement during the Showtime portion of Strikeforce: Fedor vs. Silva.

Carano has not fought since suffering her first MMA loss to Cristiane Santos in April 2009. Since that time she has been keeping busy by film the movie “Haywire” which will be released on April 22, 2011. It was reported last week that Carano had been in the gym at Xtreme Couture for the first time in over a year.

    WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!! Gina is coming back, now that is the best news I’ve heard since…….well I can’t think of anything thats better then.

    Well on the bright side once Gina loses to Cyborg again I’m sure Dana White will give her a job as a ringcard girl.

    ah nice show of respect there, make the pretty girl a ringcard girl, maybe she could make some sarnies while she’s at it eh?

    personally dont think she’ll have the heart for this return if its against top opposition

    Excited to see Gina back in the mix! She’s a great face for women’s MMA but did anybody else feel a bit awkward with her one word answers when she was interviewed during the Strikeforce telecast?

    I think She’s there for a paycheck and nothing more…she isn’t an idiot she knows she’s not a contender or a serious threat. Shit I wouldn’t leave money on the table if I was her either… Gina get that cash look hot while your doing so and back out to hollywood you go…smart and sexy gotta love it.
