A picture of ex-MMA fighter Gina Carano was uploaded to the Instagram account of former Bellator MMA champion Zoila Frausto. In the picture she is smiling beside the ex-Bellator fighter and a third woman after they had completed a training session and the photo has once again sparked interest and hope from many of Gina Carano's fans that she might be preparing for a return to the MMA octagon (MMA Junkie - January 28).
Talks for her return to the octagon with UFC boss Dana White broke down in 2014 but some of her fans have never stopped hoping that the gorgeous mixed martial artist fighter/actress would make a return to the octagon.
She has never said she would not return to mixed martial arts fighting and her training with a former MMA champion could be her way of finding out at what level her fighting skills are presently at and what she might need to improve on before announcing an official return to MMA. She has admitted in interviews that she still loves fighting and while the negotiations with UFC boss Dana White did not result in a deal it is no secret that the parties were close to a deal.
Moreover, some entertainment observers and fans have noted that while her training with MMA fighters might be in preparation for some of her upcoming film roles which include the movies "Kickboxer: Vengeance", "The Opium War" and the "Untitled Adi Shankar Project" there is another reason why she might be back in the ring.
If she is considering a return to the Octagon after her 2015 film schedule is complete than a great way to help her transition back to MMA competition is to make sure that she has been sparring and training on a consistent basis.
There has been no announcement about whether Gina Carano plans to return to the Octagon in 2015 but she knows as well as anyone that there is an expiry date as to how long one can use their past accomplishments to bring fans to the movies. An MMA fight would create huge interest in her movies and as such the possibility should not be discounted that the gorgeous Gina Carano training with her fellow MMA fighters is not just to stay in shape but for a bigger goal such as a fight in the octagon, the news of which would make many MMA fans very happy.
