“I knew in her heart she wanted to fight again. She will be fighting in the summertime -- in June, most likely.” ---Scott Coker, Strikeforce CEO

Strikeforce CEO, Scott Coker, made an announcement during the Fedor vs Silva post-fight press conference that is likely to come back in the promotion this June. However, no opponent has been mentioned for her return yet.

Gina Carano last appeared in August 2009 while competing for Strikeforce’s vacant 145-pound title against Cristiane “Cyborg” Santos. Though she was distinct for her striking advantages, Cyborg was able to defeat her via TKO. But prior to that, Gina Carano was carrying a seven-fight winning streak, and has finished over half of her opponents by either submission or knock out.

Aside from being a MMA superstar, Gina Carano has also found a home as an actress. She first performed as “Crush” in the revamped “American Gladiator” in TV, and is currently shooting for Steven Soderbergh’s “Haywire”.

Now that Gina Carano has indications of coming back inside the ring, who do you think should be her next opponent?
