Gina Carano to fight for Strikeforce in May

Strikeforce owner Scott Coker told Tom Hamlin of MMA Weekly today that Gina Carano will be on Strikeforce's May show in Tacoma, WA. He says he's meeting with her reps this week but he's pretty sure she will be on that show. Coker says they're still looking for an opponent for Cristiane Cyborg for the Apr. 11 San Jose show. As expected, they're saving Carano/Cyborg for CBS possibly this summer. Strikeforce matchmaker Javier Mendez also announced that the following female fighters will fight for Stikeforce: Sarah Kaufman, Shayna Bazsler, Debi Purcell, Jan Finney, Melanie Lacroix & Katrina Alendal.

  1. Tonya Evinger was also picked up with Strikeforce. They told her she would be fighting on April 11, but then called and changed it to May. But we are not for sure the date yet or who she will fight!
