While the UFC is in no hurry to promote women's mixed martial arts fights, they certainly don't mind if the ladies do a little promoting for them.
That's because perhaps the biggest female star in the entire sport, Gina Carano, will be in New York City on March 23 to help promote the UFC Personal Trainer video game for XBOX 360 Kinect, Playstation 3 and Nintendo Wii, according to NewsDay.com.
With the news of Zuffa buying out Strikeforce, the women's division is perhaps the most affected, as Dana White has long stated he feels there simply aren't enough talented fighters to support it.
So what does that mean for Carano and company?
Nothing, at least for the time being. As long as Strikeforce continues to operate on its own, she will remain employed in MMA. But will that change if a merger takes place sometime in the future?
"Conviction" is reportedly putting the finishing touches on her upcoming film, "Haywire" (see her on set in a wetsuit right here), and is tentatively scheduled to make her return to action on June 18 in Dallas against an opponent to be named.
