With Gina Carano Involved, 2011 To Be Good Year For Sexy, Girl-On-Girl MMA Action

Yamma hamma, if there’s one thing that’s certainly to get the blood flowing this cool and crisp November 1st, it’s the news that Gina Carano, everybody’s favorite ass-kicking, model-resembling knockout will likely return to the MMA arena next year, much to the delight of, well, pretty much every heterosexual man in the world.

While Carano has not personally confirmed that she plans a return to MMA, Strikeforce CEO Scott Coker anticipates that at some time in 2011, Gina Carano will return to fighting. With a starring role in the not yet released Steve Soderbergh film Knockout, Carano has been increasing her profile outside the world of MMA in the past year and last fought on August 15, 2009, a loss at the hands of Cristiane “Cyborg” Santos.

Coker believes Carano’s competitive nature will compel her to return to fighting, maybe not to avenge her loss to Santos personally, but at least gets back to her winning ways. Via Sherdog:

“I know Gina is not going to go out the way that it went down,” Coker said. “Her whole thing now is just timing and scheduling. She’s got the movie coming out in April, I believe, and she’s got some more stuff on her plate.”

“I know, just like Cung [Le] or other people that have [been] part of the film business … they’re still a fighter by heart, believe me, and they have that desire to compete,” Coker said. “I think Gina will be the same. It’s just a matter of time. I believe she will fight in 2011.”

Well, that is certainly enticingly sexy news. Also sexy? Carano’s pinup photos, one of which is above and two others which follow below. Also, as a special treat on this Monday is perhaps the sexiest animated GIF in the history of computer nerdery.

Hubba hubba.
