Gina Carano, a former Strikeforce employee and retired mixed martial artist, recently appeared on the Attack of the Show to talk about her upcoming movie, Haywire. She also spoke about MMA and a certain scar.

During the interview, which was hosted by Candace Bailey, Carano shared her thoughts on whether or not she’ll ever venture back into MMA.

Before Carano departed from the sport back in 2009, she’d amassed a 7-1 record, the sole loss coming via TKO courtesy of Cristiane “Cyborg” Santos in the first ever women’s Strikeforce championship bout.

Following that defeat, “Conviction” Carano took a furlough from MMA, and according to her, an eventual return to fighting is at present up in the air.

Though, when Bailey asked about a prominent scar on her left arm, Carano coyly avoided answering the question.

Carano, who also starred in Blood and Bone, returns to the silver screen in Steven Soderbergh’s action flick, Haywire.

She plays lead protagonist Mallory Kane, a freelance covert operative who ends up being double-crossed.

With vengeance on her mind, she sets out to find those responsible.

The films cast consists of thespian heavyweights such as Michael Douglas, Michael Fassbender, Ewan McGregor, Antonio Banderas and Bill Paxton.

Haywire is set to hit the screens on Jan. 20, 2012
