Bad news, fight fans ... real bad.
On a conference call today, General Manager Scott Coker read a statement from Carano:
"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.
