Gina Carano is an American actress and former mixed martial artist.
She was born on April 16, 1982, in Dallas County, Texas, and raised in Las Vegas, Nevada; she is the middle child of three sisters.
Carano’s parents divorced when she was seven, and she was raised by her mother.
She began her training with Muay Thai and later competed in EliteXC and Strikeforce from 2006 to 2009, where she compiled a 7–1 record.
Carano’s popularity led to her being called the “face of women’s MMA,” although Carano rejected this title.
She and Cris Cyborg were the first women to headline a major MMA event during their 2009 Strikeforce bout.
Carano retired from competition after her first professional MMA defeat to Cyborg.
She is also known for her acting career. She has appeared in several movies and TV shows, including Haywire, Fast & Furious 6 and The Mandalorian.
Carano has won several awards for her contributions to the female action genre and women’s MMA, including the Artemis Action Warrior Award and ActionFest’s Chuck Norris Award for Best Female Action Star.
In 2021, she was dropped from The Mandalorian over what the studio called ‘abhorrent and unacceptable’ social media posts.
