Daughter of former Cowboys QB switches TV venues, nicknames

Gina Carano as Gladiator and mixed martial arts artiste

Gina Carano, daughter of former Dallas Cowboys backup QB Glenn Carano, has segued from NBC's American Gladiators to the premiere of the CBS Elitexc Saturday Night Fights.

On Gladiators she was Gina "Crush" Carano. Now the 25-year-old bumps 'n' bruises vet is dubbed Gina "Conviction" Carano. She'll battle Kaitlin Young in a 140-pound mixed martial arts matchup on Saturday, May 31st. There are five bouts in all, headlined by Kimbo Slice vs. James "Colossus" Thompson.

CBS, bidding for a younger male audience, bills Carano as an "undefeated Muay Thai specialist." She probably enjoys a good Mai Tai, too.

Her Dad played from 1977-83 for the Cowboys, occasionally subbing for Danny White. He threw three TD passes during his tenure.
