No Medical Clearance, No Gina Carano

| by

The June 18 Strikeforce: Overeem vs Werdum card taking place at the American Airlines Center in Dallas, TX just suffered a major blow when uber-popular female fighter Gina Carano was forced to pull out of the card following the revocation of her medical clearance by her physician. 

Strikeforce executive Scott Coker made the announcement this afternoon on to gathered media on a conference call.

No further details were given and Coker repeatedly dodged the press’ continued questioning on what the exact physical condition was that prevented her clearance being revoked. 

There was no word given on if Sarah D’Alelio, Carano’s slatted opponent, will remain on the card.  What is clear is that the lightweight scrap between K.J. Noons and Jorge Masvidal has now been promoted to the Showtime televised main card.
