Gina Carano Had To Take ‘Primetime’ Fight To Return As ‘Crush’ On American Gladiators; Missed Weight

Gina Carano had to do what she had to do. Hopefully it’s not going to cost her in her first network television bout. American Gladiators has brought her a ton of attention, so it would seem to be one of those “damned if you do, damned if you don’t” situations if she loses Kaitlin Young due to a lack of training.

In semi-related news, Gina missed weight today by 4.5lbs, weighing in at 144.5 lbs with a 140lb weight limit (non-title fights are given 1lb allowance, so technically she missed it by 3.5lbs). The fight will still take place, but Gina will have to forfeit 12% of her purse to Young. This can probably be attributed to Gina’s lack of time to train, but this isn’t the first time she’s missed weight, so clearly something needs to change in her next outing.

All other fighters made weight including her opponent, Kaitlin Young.
