Speaking via MMAJunkie.com, Jackson said:
“She called me up and said ‘Hey, can I come down to Albuquerque to train?’ I said, ‘Sure.’ So, she came down to train. We don’t have any 145ers, and she’s really sweet and really nice. So, those are the things you look for. And she’s talented; she’s very talented.”
“She’s really talented, she works hard, she does what’s expected, and I’m impressed. I’m just starting to get to know her as fighter. But, she’s here all the time and she works really, really hard.”
“She’s got the talent, and she has a great work ethic. Those two things will take you as far as your will can. As I get to know her more as far as helping her out for the fight, we’ll get to a better sense of it. But, she definitely has all the talent and all the potential in the world.”Carano hasn’t been seen since she lost to women’s middleweight champion, Cristiane “Cyborg” Santos back in August 2009. She has instead been busy furthering her movie career including shooting this summers upcoming film, Haywire. She’ll take on Jiu-Jitsu practitioner, Sarah D’Alelio on June 18th in Dallas, Texas.
