Gina Carano stopped short of confirming she'll be stepping back into the octagon, but she came awfully close.

The 31-year-old was a guest on the Arsenio Hall Show -- which, apparently, still exists? -- and opened up about her desire to once again fight professionally.

"I'm actually kind of considering it," Carano said. "There's not a workout I go through that I'm not fighting someone in my mind, it's never gone away."

The interview will only add fuel to the fire of rumours suggesting Carano could be in line to trade blows against UFC women's bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey sometime soon.

If it happens, the matchup would be something of a dream for UFC matchmakers Joe Silva and Sean Shelby. Rousey (9-0-0) has emerged as one of the most bankable faces on the organization's roster, but has been so thoroughly dominant the division's become somewhat short on intriguing title challengers.

Carano would change that.
