Steroids in MMA
Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Randy Doesn’t Think Gina Will Fight Again

(Don’t worry, Gina. We won’t let Cyborg on the set.)

It appears that Cris Cyborg may have taken more than just Gina Carano’s Strikeforce belt when she beat the woman many consider to be the most popular female mixed martial arts fighter of all time last August.

She may have taken her will to fight as well.

360 days have passed since her last bout and while the MMA community holds its collective breath waiting for an update on when (or if) Carano will fight again, her former trainer, coach and cornerman Randy Couture isn’t convinced she’ll ever compete again.

In a Q&A session ahead of UFC 117 last weekend, Couture had this to say when asked about Gina’s fighting future:

"Gina just did a movie that’s going to be coming out soon. I haven’t seen her in the gym, haven’t talked to her in nine months," Couture revealed. "I’m not sure where she’s at. I know the movie is going to be very big for her and I’d be very surprised to see her back in the cage."

The movie he’s referring to is Steven Soderbergh’s Haywire, which is basically a revamped version of The Bourne Identity with a female lead. Set for theatrical release in January 2011, Haywire also stars Channing Tatum, Ewan McGregor, Michael Douglas, Michael Fassbender, Bill Paxton and Antonio Banderas.

From all accounts, the movie is decent and there’s no denying that the cast is impressive, but if we learned anything from Cleopatra, The Avengers, Battlefield Earth, Gigli or Alexander, not even Academy Award winning actors can save a film from tanking at the box office. Hopefully Gina didn’t throw out her training gear just yet.

Do people honestly think she was the "face" of women's MMA because she was a good fighter. LOL

Gina will have a better career in movies,...failing that, look for her to do a semi-nude pictorial in Playboy if the movie career tanks. Hot chicks always go that route when the cash stops rolling in. Oh and possibly a marrige to someone filthy rich......It's a given.

@Mike...I almost forgot: don't forget to use sarcastic sentence structure either, it will go a long way with your drivel.

I'm so tired of seeing Angelina Jolie's bony little ass pretending to knock people out, it's such bullshit. How does she get cast in action movies??

FINALLY we've got a female action lead who could factually break most men in half. No suspension of disbelief required.

Next step: a female ANAL lead who can break men in half. Just went from 6 to noon. Don't be shy, Gina. Gina Caranal.

I don't like seeing women get bloodied in the cage anyway. (Cyborg's awesome, but she should fight other men.)

She's hot. I want to see more of her. Preferably not in a cage. Good work.

So I take it she dropped the rape charges against Cyborg then?

Wouldn't surprise me. I feel you have to really, really want to fight to be a long-term fighter. If you have 2 choices to make money, and you are OK with not beating someone up; what do you chose? She knows she would have to dedicate her whole life to MMA in order to beat Cyborg; and very, very few people are willing to make the sacrifices and take the risk of premanent injury just to say "I was an MMA champion." There are many ways to be a champ, Carano's path is not to end with MMA. This is not an insult.

Flipside: what options does Cyborg have post-MMA? Owning a gym, endorsements, maybe more...but more than likely will not have the same opportunities that lies before Gina. To each there own and to thine own self be true.

Erased230- August 10, 2010 at 4:58 pm
Holding collective breath to know if she's returning to MMA? Hardly. If she's coming out in a Porno, then you got me!
