MMA Quick Quote: Gina Carano still has 'Cyborg' Santos on her mind

"I just had to weigh some options. I’m making these decisions, so nobody else is going to make these decisions for me. I have to make them, and so we’re going to get something figured out and I’ll be fighting. I pray about it and see what would be a good move for my career, and I just know that no matter what, any fight from here is going to be a big fight, and a tough one. Maybe it’s the calm before the storm.... It’s gonna happen. Actually, the only person I can think about right now. My focus is on her, and I don’t really want to fight anybody else but her. Let’s do it."

-- Former Elite XC female mixed martial arts mega star Gina Carano provides with an update on her current situation in a recent interview. "Conviction" has not competed since a three-round drubbing of Kelly Kobold in October 2008, winning via unanimous decision and pushing her perfect record to seven wins versus zero defeats. She has long been rumored to meet up with Brazilian Chute Boxe-trained striker, Christian "Cyborg" Santos. However, the highly anticipated match up has never materialized on numerous occasions for various reasons. Santos is now booked to fight Hitomi Akano at Strikeforce: "Shamrock vs, Diaz" on April 11. Carano indicates that the fight could finally happen if Santos can pull off the victory ... maybe.
