Video: Gina Carano announces UFC future on Arsenio Hall show ahead of upcoming meeting with Dana White

Nothing is official at this time, but it's hard to not get excited about the prospect of seeing "Conviction" step foot inside the Octagon.

"There's not a workout that I go through that I'm not fighting somebody in my mind and it's never gone away. I love it. It's something I can do that makes everything else disappear. I dream about it, I just didn't know if I was ever going to get placed with the opportunity to make a comeback. So I'm either going to do it now or I'm gonna retire and say, 'I'm never gonna do it.' So now is the moment."

She might not be fighting UFC women's bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey (unless this happens), but that doesn't mean we won't get the chance to see Gina Carano step foot inside the Octagon before calling it quits on her mixed martial arts (MMA) career. The former Strikeforce featherweight title contender hasn't been seen since a 2009 drubbing against Cris Cyborg, but never fully closed the door on her fighting future. Now, as women's MMA continues to grow exponentially, Carano has the opportunity to make another run at division gold. But at what weight class? All that -- and more -- are sure to be discussed when the "beautiful" movie star sits down with UFC President Dana White next week to talk turkey. Stay tuned.
