For the second time in a week, an EliteXC fighter will be featured on “E:60.”
The most recognizable face in women’s mixed martial arts, the incredibly popular and talented Gina “Conviction’’ Carano, of Las Vegas, will be profiled on “E:60” next Tuesday, May 13, on ESPN.
The multi-subject newsmagazine show starts at 7 p.m. ET/4 p.m. PT.
Tuesday’s segment will include comments from Gina’s parents—her father, Glenn, is a former NFL quarterback—world-class women fighters Shayna Baszler and Tara LaRosa, the story behind Gina getting involved in MMA and why she stopped going to college – 18 credits short of getting her degree – and the impact of her sudden stardom.
Carano, aka “Crush” on “American Gladiators,” will fight dangerous, confident, hard-hitting Hook ‘n Shoot champion Kaitlin Young, of Minneapolis, on the first-ever MMA primetime broadcast on network television when “CBS EliteXC Saturday Night Fights’’ premieres with a five-fight card on Saturday, May 31, on the CBS Television Network (9 p.m.-11 p.m. ET/PT).
