You've been hesitant in talking about your future in MMA, one way or another. What criteria would you use to make a decision about returning or not?

(chuckles) There are certain things that I always dreamed of, like fighting in the UFC. That was a big one.

I don't know. There's just certain things that I feel like haven't been accomplished there. There's such great women coming up in the sport; seems like a wonderful time to be in women's MMA.

So I'm not sure. I'm going to kind of get on the other side of Jan. 20th and give back to this film what it gave to me. Because it was -- I won't lie and say it wasn't the best time of my life, because it absolutely was. It was really fun to creatively express myself in a sport and a passion that I love, without having to try and hurt someone.

I know that there's so much that you can do in a lifetime with acting and there's only a certain amount of time you can fight. I'm keeping all these things in mind. I'll definitely know a lot more in a couple of months.

Is that a way of saying that you'd be done with fighting if the movie does well and high-quality offerings come rolling in from Hollywood?

Not necessarily. I think that the right offer has to come in either way. I was told that by a wonderful actress whom I've always kind of looked up to and watched in her career, the good and the bad.

She told me something and I'll always remember it. She says, "No matter what, you've got make the right decisions for yourself in this life. You have to stay true to yourself."

Sometimes that means walking away from something that you don't want to walk away from because you think the opportunity's going to be so great. Or sometimes that's doing something that nobody believes in, like when I started Muay Thai and I got hard time for fighting and looked at sideways for thinking that that was a profession.

I think it's just going to feel right when it does. I'm not sure exactly what is going to take that decision. I'm just trying to get on the other side of Jan. 20th and look back and know I gave it everything I had to give back. Then I can have a clean slate and start and land where I'm at.

read entire article...

RyannVonDoom - We'll find out monday after reviews and numbers for haywire are posted. <img src="/images/phone/apple.png" alt="Phone Post" border="0" style="vertical-align:middle;"/>


It doesn't matter how much money the movie gets are what the reviews are. Every critic pretty much agrees that Gina can carve out her own niche market in Hollywood.

Actually, this summary article missed the main points. She wants to come back but to the UFC only and only if she's paid what she's worth.

She also said she'd be open to a return even if movie does well, but for UFC only and with the right compensation.

If she can make some bucks doing movies, then she should stick to that while she's still young and marketable. 

I wouldn't mind seeing her back in MMA (she's the only female fighter I like watching fight), but really, who would she fight at 145+? She's probably missed weight more often than she's made weight and seems to pack on the pounds pretty easily. Tate and Rousey are too small for her.
