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.
