Gina Carano’s MMA career is currently on hold as Strikeforce CEO Scott Coker told MMAWeekly that she has already started acting classes to prepare for her role in the upcoming movie “Knockout.”
Sources at Xtreme Couture, the gym where Carano trains, told the website that she has been “MIA” since her loss to Cristiane “Cyborg” Santos on August 15th.
“We would love to have her back, and we would love to have her fight again. I think in her heart she’s still a fighter,” Coker said of his most recognizable female fighter.
The loss to Santos came in Carano’s debut for Strikeforce and people in her camp have said that the pressure leading up to the title bout had an impact on its outcome.
