NY Times and LA Times feature Gina Carano

January 1, 2012

The New York Times and LA Times feature Gina Carano in its Sunday editions as she is starring in the new Steven Soderbergh movie “Haywire”

The articles give a background on Carano’s upbringing and her experience in getting into MMA. Each article gives an account of her meeting with Soderbergh which occurred a week after losing to Cyborg Santos in July 2009.

Payout Perspective:

Carano and her movie, “Haywire” were prevalent in and around the Octagon on Friday night. With the press she is doing for the movie, Carano could bring positive publicity to Strikeforce and woman’s MMA. She has the looks and athleticism to be very successful in movies. We will see how her acting is in the movie. Dependent on the success of the movie, it will be interesting to see the direction of her MMA career. Will she continue her MMA career or will more movie offers come her way which would take her away from the Octagon.

Arguably, Carano is one of the reasons (along with Cyborg, Tate and Rousey) Zuffa is keeping woman’s MMA. We’ll see how long it will take for her to get back.
