Once one of the most-followed mixed-martial-arts fighters of any gender, Gina Carano has all but disappeared from the public eye following her August 2009 Strikeforce title loss to Cristiane "Cyborg" Santos and subsequent acting gig. Carano, who appears in famed director Steven Soderbergh's 2011 film release "Knockout," hasn't fought professionally since that loss, which was the first of her career. And while she isn't booked for Strikeforce anytime soon, SF CEO Scott Coker intends to reach out to her soon. "We will be reaching out to her soon," Coker said after Saturday's latest Showtime-televised event. "She's still part of the family.
"We miss you Gina."

I've moved on from her. Mika Nagano is now my Gina, after all she can tie people up in knots.

Is it strange that I actually find Cyborg more attractive than Carano?

It depends. Are you blind?

Not blind. I just think she's cuter. What do I know?

That Soderbergh movie and all its subsequent press will be fixated on Carano. I do wonder when she will be available for a training camp free from the distraction of starring in a movie directed by the guy that made Traffic, Ocean's Eleven, Erin Brokovich, Che, The Informant!, etc. and co-starring Michael Douglas, Ewan McGregor, Dennis Quaid, and others.

I wouldn't expect Carano back in MMA well until next year. Her career in movies is working out with much more success than Cung Le's or Roger Huerta's did, and she hasn't even acted in her first movie yet.

No. Assuming you mean Mrs. Cyborg, of course.
