If any of you were worried (and we know some were since we read the comments here) that the reason your *former* fantasy girlfriend Gina Carano pulled out of her June Strikeforce return bout against Sarah D’Alelio was that she was pregnant, you can put her poster back up above your bed and her pillowcase back on in place of your Empire Strikes Back one.
Gina says she wasn’t with child, that is unless you’re counting Kit Cope and that her mystery illness will remain just that.
Carano, who counts Ewan McGregor as “by far one of her most favorite human beings on the planet” told MMA H.E.A.T. host Karyn Bryant Saturday night that, contrary to popular belief, the baby she wasn’t carrying wasn’t Randy Couture‘s and the non-existent pregnancy wasn’t the reason she went to train with Team Jackson for the camp.
“You know, I tried to fight in June, but I had to pull out for some medical reasons. I had the most beautiful training camp with everybody up at Greg Jackson’s [gym].No, [I haven't revealed the health issue that made me unable to fight in June]. It was personal,” she says. “People were saying that it was Randy Couture['s baby I was pregnant with]…Yeah. It’s like so messed up. No. None of that. Thank God.THANK GOD.Absolutely thank God. None of that. Randy’s like my…He’s like my brother, or older brother. Yeah.”
As far as her new timetable for a return to fighting, Carano says that she hasn’t really had time to think about it since she’s so busy living the life of a Hollywood actress with the release of Haywire rapidly approaching in January.
“Now my focus is…I’m kind of a ‘one step at a time’ type of girl; my focus is to get this movie out January 20 and get on the other side of that ‘cos this has been something that has been building for the last two years now.As soon as I get on the other side of that, I can focus more. Until then I’m kind of like, ‘Ugh!’ It’s only a couple more months, too. So I’ve got a bunch of press to do and then I’m gonna get on the other side of it and just be happy,” she explains. “I am a one step at a time kind of girl so my focus is on getting this movie out…As soon as I can get on the other side of that, I can focus more.”
Let the irresponsible speculation as to Gina’s “medical issue” by the Potato Nation’s armchair medical experts begin.
