Gina Carano Expected to Return Against Sarah D’Alelio at Strikeforce on June 18

Gina Carano will return to MMA for the first time in nearly two years when she’s expected to face Sarah D’Alelio at “Strikeforce: Overeem vs. Werdum” on June 18 in Dallas, according to MMA Fighting.

Carano (7-1) hasn’t fought since suffering a first-round TKO to Cristiane “Cyborg” Santos for her first career loss in Aug. 2009, while D’Alelio (4-1) dropped a unanimous decision to notable Julie Kedzie in December after four-straight wins.

The Showtime-televised card is headlined by a pair of Strikeforce heavyweight grand prix quarterfinals, as heavyweight champ Alistair Overeem faces Fabricio Werdum in a non-title bout and Josh Barnett takes on Brett Rogers.
