Default Carano fails to receive medical clearance, will not fight at ôStrikeforce: Overeem vs



Quote:
Gina Carano's (7-1 MMA, 1-1 SF) return to action will have to wait.

Strikeforce CEO Scott Coker today announced that Carano's "medical clearance was revoked," leaving her ineligible to compete in a previously announced June 18 contest with Sarah D'Alelio (4-1 MMA, 0-0 SF) at "Strikeforce: Overeem vs. Werdum."

With the contest scrapped, a lightweight bout between K.J. Noons and Jorge Masvidal has been promoted to the evening's Showtime-broadcast main card.

Bad news, fight fans ... real bad.

Gina Carano, who was all set to make her return to the cage on June 18 at the Strikeforce: "Overeem vs. Werdum" event in Dallas, Texas, against Sarah D'Alelio, has been pulled from the card.

On a conference call today, General Manager Scott Coker read a statement from Carano:

Quote:
"I'm disappointed not to be fighting June 18. I'd like to thank Greg Jackson ... and I hope this is just a brief setback."
The reason given for "Conviction's" inability to participate in the June 18 festivities was that she was not medically cleared to compete by her doctor, although that was the extent of the information offered at this time.

Carano (7-1) hasn't seen action since a first round beatdown at the hands of Brazilian "Cyborg" Cristiane Santos back in August 2009. Following the loss, "Conviction" took a break from competition to star in the upcoming "Haywire" movie from director Steven Soderbergh.

She told fans earlier this year she was planning her MMA return to "prove something to herself," but she'll have to wait until a later date to do so.



There is no word yet on whether or not D'Alelio will receive a new opponent or will be yanked from the card altogether.

Stepping in to fill the void on the main card will be the K.J. Noons vs. Jorge Masvidal lightweight number one contender bout.

"Overeem vs. Werdum" will feature the continuation of the heavyweight grand prix tournament with match-ups pitting Alistair Overeem vs. Fabricio Werdum and Josh Barnett vs. Brett Rogers.

A pair of heavyweight tilts are also set for the night's main card, as Chad Griggs will take on Valentijn Overeem and Daniel Cormier will battle Jeff Monson.

Keep it locked to MMAmania.com for any updates to Carano's condition and the Strikeforce June 18 fight card.

Yeah, that's the prevailing opinion. I've heard everything from Couture to Bloodstain Lane.

Gina is very over hyped, and had fights had fed to her.

Although I wonder why she failed her physical.
