This picture of Gina Carano has been making its rounds on the Internet this weekend. As you can see, it depicts Gina Carano either pre-workout or post-workout holding a Black House t-shirt within a Black House gym.
Carano, herself, hasn’t announced anything. It’s entirely possible that she’s just visiting the gym. If that’s the case, this photo will no doubt lead to tons of errant speculation.
However, it’s possible that Carano is starting to get back into fighting shape. After all, UFC president Dana White said that Carano in the UFC was simply “a matter of getting a deal done.” But Dana is known to be among MMA’s greatest prevaricators, so we won’t put too much stock in what he says.
We’re not saying she’s going to fight in the UFC. We’re just saying there’s a picture of her at a serious MMA gym. Maybe she’s just getting in shape for the summer, but maybe there’s something more to it. Maybe she’ll fight Ronda Rousey at the end of the summer in a blockbuster PPV. Or maybe she’s slimming down for a role in Razor Fight II: The Slashening. All explanations are equally likely at this point.
Until then, let’s preemptively cringe about how awful any potential Carano-Rousey fight trailers will be.
