Gina Joy Carano was born in Dallas, Texas, USA on 16 April 1982. She is an actor, fitness guru, and a former mixed martial artist. She is considered to be one of the best female fighters in Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) history, being dubbed as the “Face of Women’s MMA”.

So how rich is Carano? She has an estimated net worth of $4 million, much of her wealth gained from being one of the highest paid female martial artists, as well as from her recent acting career.

Gina Carano Net Worth $4 Million

Carano is the daughter of former football quarterback Glenn Thomas Carano and Dana Joy née Cason, and the second of three sisters, named Casey and Christie. She has an Italian descent along with English, Scottish, Dutch, and German roots. Although her parents divorced when she was young, her father remained very much a part of her life. She was an athlete throughout her education, playing volleyball, softball, and basketball at Trinity Christian High School. She went to college at the University of Nevada, Reno and later transferred to the University of Nevada, Las Vegas where she was offered scholarships both for softball and basketball. She took up psychology but later dropped out to help her sister get through a crisis. She then started her career in Muay Thai through her then-boyfriend, Kevin Ross, who is a professional Muay Thai fighter. She held a record of 12 wins, one loss, and one draw and became the first American woman to win a title in Thailand. Her net worth had started well.

Gina then entered the world of MMA, where she won her first fight against Leiticia Pestova, in the first-ever sanctioned female MMA bout in Nevada. Due to her pretty face, she wasn’t taken seriously and was accused of using her sex appeal to fuel her career. However, despite criticisms, she knocked down veteran fighter Rosi Sexton in the second round and claimed victory against Elaina Maxwell via unanimous decision. She quickly rose to fame, winning numerous fights including the televised fight against Julie Kedzie, and gained the adoration of men and women alike. She remained undefeated until her fight against Cristiane “Cyborg” Santos in the first Women’s Championship where she lost by a Technical Knock Out. However, it was later announced that Santos tested positive for steroids, shedding doubts on the legitimacy of her wins, including her fight with Carano. After her disappointing loss, Carano left MMA with a record of seven wins and one loss and ranking as the third best female fighter in the world according to the Unified Women’s MMA Rankings. Her net worth was well established.

Aside from her impressive MMA record, Carano also has a lot of acting credits under her belt. In 2006, she made her acting debut in the film “Ring Girls”, and then appeared in the reality series “Fight Girls” as a mentor to aspiring female fighters, as well as the shows “American Gladiators” and “Almost Human”. Gina appeared in the video game “Command & Conquer: Red Alert 3” as Natasha as well as the film “Blood and Bone” in 2009.

Also on the big screen, Gina starred in the spy thriller movie “Haywire” along with stars Michael Fassbender, Channing Tatum, Ewan McGregor, and Antonio Banderas in 2011. Her other movies include “Haywire”, “Fast & Furious 6”, “In the Blood”, and her latest film “Deadpool”. All contributed to her growing net worth.

In addition, Gina Carano was featured on the cover of “Playboy” and “ESPN The Magazine‘s Body Issue”, as well as being nominated for Best Actress in an Action Film by the Screen Actor’s Guild (SAG), and became the first ever recipient of the Chuck Norris Award for Best Female Action Star for her role in “Haywire”. Her net worth is still growing.

In her personal life, Carano’s dating includes fellow fighters Kevin Ross and Kit Hope as well as “Superman” actor Henry Cavill. However, she remains, officially, single.
