Building off Strikeforce’s recent announcement of popular female fighter Gina Carano’s return to the cage later this year, as well as news the promotion has scheduled an show for June 18 at the American Airlines Center in her hometown of Dallas, Texas, it appears the crossover star may indeed have an opportunity to fight in her own backyard as word has surfaced Carano’s camp is in negotiations to face 6-1 Brazilian Amanda Nunes at the event.

News of the possibility was first reported by Tatame (http://www.tatame.com/2011/03/03/Gina-Carano-vs-Amanda-Nunes-in-the-works-for-Strikeforce) where Nunes’ manager was quoted as saying talks are ongoing and he expects the match-up to take place.

Nunes has rendered all six of the opponents she’s defeated defenseless by way of strikes and hasn’t lost since being submitted in her professional debut three years ago. She last saw action at Strikeforce Challengers 13 in January where she knocked Julia Budd out in less than twenty seconds.

If the fight comes to fruition it will mark the first time 7-1 Carano has stepped into the cage in nearly two years. The beautiful brawler has been immersed in filming an upcoming Steve Soderbergh called “Haywire” after suffering the first loss of her career in August 2009, a TKO to current 145-pound champion Cristiane “Cyborg” Santos.

Carano vs. Nunes would add to an already-stacked line-up for the June event including an appearance from former light heavyweight title-holder Muhammed “King Mo” Lawal and the second half of Strikeforce’s World Grand Prix quarterfinal round with Alistair Overeem facing Fabricio Werdum and Josh Barnett taking on Brett Rogers.

Found this. It's a story from about 15 hours ago, but it's the latest thing that popped up when I typed in Gina Carano into the Google search window (pun intended).

Chris Vender, who's worked with the Brazilian-based Nunes for more than a year, today told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) that Nunes (6-1 MMA, 1-0 SF) is not under consideration to meet Gina Carano (7-1 MMA, 0-1 SF).

The whole article is here.... (http://mmajunkie.com/news/22694/manager-amanda-nunes-not-on-the-table-for-strikeforces-gina-carano.mma)....and there's a picture as well.

Later.

Gina was probably thinking "When she said she would "hit it", I thought she meant something else"

I don't think she's anything special. Plus, I despise fighters who consistently fail to make weight.

Well, the WWE rumors about Santos appear to have been squashed.

Officials with World Wrestling Entertainment have denied a Brazilian report that Strikeforce women’s middleweight champion Cristiane “Cyborg” Santos was negotiating to join the never-ending list of MMA names to have participated in pro wrestling.

Here's the whole article. (http://sports.yahoo.com/mma/news;_ylt=ApdRgQCJfbndpKA.WiqYYJE9Eo14?slug=dm-santoswwenogo030511)

Yeah, and Brock is going to fight the Undertaker at Wrestlemania this year.

I heard that was because the Undertaker is going to retire and he said that he wanted Brock to be his final "fight".

Wonder if it'll happen.

LOL, I was making fun of internet rumors. This has been debunked over and over.

Agreed. I just think there's something really disrespectful about it.
