Carano ponders return to competitive MMA
Female mixed martial arts (MMA) fighter-turned-action-star Gina Carano is pondering a return to competitive MMA.
The 31-year-old actress is planning to meet UFC president Dana White to discuss her possible comeback.
"It's something I can do that makes everything else disappear. I dream about it,” Carano said in MMA Fighting, referring to competitive fighting.
Carano, one of the beautiful faces in women's MMA, has fought in Strike Force and EliteXC where she compiled a record of seven victories and one defeat.
The last time she fought was in 2009 when she lost to Cristiane “Cyborg” Justiano.
She later joined show business and starred in several movies like Haywire and Fast & Furious 6. She recently signed on as the lead in movie described as the female version of "The Expendables."
Her competitive spirit was resurrected when women's MMA started to become popular due to the rise of UFC female champion Ronda Rousey.
“I just didn't know if I was ever going to get placed with the opportunity to make a comeback. So I'm either going to do it now or retire and say, I'm never going to do it. So now is the moment," Carano said about her possible MMA comeback.
