"I get a lot of flack from people who are like ‘oh she’s not serious about fighting’ and that’s not it at all ... I’m not just a fighter ... I’m a bunch of things, I have a lot of interests.... I’m really looking forward to after this fight just sticking to a routine and a program. I’m just getting a handle on it, I think that’s why I’ve slipped up in certain areas, missing weight, I’ve been all over the place, cause I didn’t have any stability or anything.... I’m going to say that just in the last two months have I calmed down and started living normally and training normally.... Cause I’ve been completely like chaos for the last year it seems like or even longer. I’ve been all over the place.... I’m going to be a better fighter for it."
-- Top female fighter Gina Carano provides some reasoning behind her recent inability to make the 140-pound division weight limit in a recent MMAWeekly.com radio interview. This is after the promotion allegedly created the weight class strictly to accommodate her before "Conviction" arrived on the scene. Carano has several irons in the fire in addition to her mixed martial arts career, including a role as "Crush" on "American Gladiators." After several mishaps on the scale she now appears to "have a handle on it." We'll find out soon enough when she weighs-in for her bout against Kelly Kobald next weekend at Elite XC: "Heat" at the Bank Atlantic Center in Sunrise, Fla., on October 4, which will air live on CBS beginning at 9 p.m. ET.
