Report: Gina Carano to return in October; Kelly Kobald rumored as possible opponent

Sherdog is reporting that Gina Carano’s management has confirmed to them that she will return on EliteXC’s October 4 card which is likely to be televised on CBS. Carano last fought on May 31 when she defeated Kaitlin Young via TKO at the end of the second round at EliteXC: Primetime, the first ever MMA card on network television. Young’s eye was extremely swollen at the end of the second round and she was deemed unable to continue by the doctors at ringside.

Kelly Kobald, a fighter who trains out of Minnesota Martial Arts, has been rumored as the possible opponent for Carano for the October show. Minnesota Martial Arts is the same camp that Kaitlin Young fights out of so she should be well prepared for the fight if she is indeed Carano’s next opponent. Kobald is a veteran of Bodog Fight and has dropped her last two fights to Tara LaRosa and Julie Kedzie. Before that, Kobald was on a seventeen fight win streak.

    Good. I was worried she’d have to fight the winner of Baszler/Cyborg. It’s too soon to see Gina get beat.

    They have not announced a venue yet, but I doubt they have the budget for any overseas country. If it’s anywhere in California, I’m going.
