Though UFC boss Dana White spent the past few months saying he will have Carano signed to the promotion, he hasn’t delivered. Instead, Carano has plans to film two more movies this year.
Carano’s manager Scott Karp told MMA Fighting’s Ariel Helwani that Gina will be filming “Bus 657″ with Robert DeNiro in October, and a second movie in December.
Carano last fought in 2009 under the Strikeforce banner. She is interested in a return to MMA and Rousey wants to fight her, but Carano and the UFC have not agreed on any deals.
After losing to Cyborg Justino in 2009, Carano began a career as an actress. She has appeared in “Blood and Bone,” “Haywire,” “Fast & Furious 6,” and “In the Blood” since launching her movie career. Her plans to appear in two more movies this year doesn’t mean she won’t fight Rousey at some point, it just means the fight won’t happen late this year/early next year the way White planned.
