Gina Carano Fails Pre-Fight Medical, Off June 18th Strikeforce Event In Dallas, Texas

Top rated women’s fighter, Gina Carano has been forced to withdraw from her June 18th bout with Sarah D’Alelio after failing her pre-fight medical earlier this week.

Strikeforce CEO, Scott Coker, speaking in a statement made by Carano read out via media conference call, said:

“I’m disappointed not to be fighting June 18. I’d like to thank (coach and trainer) Greg Jackson … and I hope this is just a brief setback.”

Scott Coker then went on to say:

“I know she’s really disappointed. We talked to her representatives. It’s an unfortunate situation, and we’ll be moving forward with the KJ Noons-(Masvidal) fight. We just don’t have any other further information on Gina.”

“I respect she doesn’t want to fight once. She wants to fight in the fall, next year … she has this game plan in her mind and fighting’s important to her. Let’s see how far she can take it. She wants to come back, and the game plan depends on how she does in the first couple fights. But you have that fight in you, you’ve got that dog in you – you want to fight. She has that in her. She’s going to continue to do (films and fighting).”
