Team Jackson/Winkeljohn has been convicted.

Well, technically it’s “Conviction,” as Strikeforce star Gina Carano has begun training with the team in New Mexico in preparation for her return to action in June.

Sources at Team Jackson/Winkeljohn informed MMAWeekly.com that Carano began training there about three weeks ago, and while she’s not officially part of the team, she plans to continue her work there in the immediate future.

Carano has spent her entire training career up till now in and around the Las Vegas area. Originally training Muay Thai with Master Toddy, Carano then advanced her MMA training at Xtreme Couture.

She spent the majority of her training camps at Xtreme Couture for her last several fights, but she appears ready for a bit of a change.

Over the past few years, Team Jackson/Winkeljohn has built up a solid stable of women’s fighters including Julie Kedzie, who faces Kaitlin Young in the main event of Jackson’s MMA Series 4 this weekend, as well as top pro boxer turned MMA fighter Holly Holm.

Carano will train with the team in preparation for her tentatively scheduled return to action this June at Strikeforce’s event in Dallas. She has been out of action for over a year since a loss to Cris “Cyborg” Santos, and then began filming her part in a new movie titled “Haywire” directed by Steven Soderbergh.
