Gina Carano E:60 ESPN segment to debut tonight (Video update)

gina carano
Popular Elite XC female fighter Gina "Conviction" Carano will be showcased on the ESPN program "E:60" tonight at 7 p.m. ET (it will be broadcast in HD, fortunately).

Carano has a historical fight coming up in less than three weeks against fellow Muay Thai specialist Kaitlyn Young on the "Saturday Night Fights" CBS under card that is set to take place at the Prudential Center in Newark, N.J., on May 31.

It's the first-ever mixed martial arts (MMA) event to air live on network television.

However, it is not her first appearance on national television. She is also a regular on NBC's "American Gladiators" as "Crush" where she specializes in the joust. "Crush" is undefeated.

Tonight's program will no doubt focus on women competing in MMA and combat sports in general. There will probably be a lot on Carano's upbringing as an athlete and a fighter and how she got into MMA. It should be pretty interesting.

Definitely catch it if you can ... 7 p.m. ET on ESPN or ESPN HD.

ESPN "E:60″ is hosted by Tom Farrey, Lisa Salters, Jeremey Schapp, Rachael Nichols and Michael Smith.

UPDATE: Check out the segment after the jump.
