The most popular face in women’s mixed martial arts, Gina Carano will make her return to face Brazilian prospect, Amanda Nunes at the June 18th Strikeforce card in Dallas, Texas.

Nunes manager, Zé Mário, speaking to Tatame Magazine, said:

“We want her to fight more before fighting for the title, so we’ll fight Gina in June, who’s very respected in the US.”

Carano had her seven fight winning streak come to an end when she met Cristiane “Cyborg” Santos back in August 2009. She holds notable wins over Rosi Sexton and Elaina Maxwell during her run. Nunes is on a six fight winning streak including a promotional debut win over Julia Budd back in January.
