Gina Carano: The Face of Female Mixed Martial Arts

And yes, I am a Gina Carano fan. Before I became familiar with Gina Carano, I have came across with Natasha, Soviet Union's female sniper at Red Alert 3. Curiosity told me to find out who is the actress behind Natasha's character and to my surprise, she isn't an actress but a Muay thai / MMA champion. After a series of researches, I became a fan of Gina Carano and MMA in general.

In a male dominated sport like MMA, many will wonder what does a lady with stunning looks that belongs to the movies and billboard posters doing inside the octagon. Ask Gina and she'll say "i came here to fight". Seeing an angelic lady talking as tough as men is really admirable. More than the looks and appeal, what is more awesome is her dedication and passion to focus in a field where even average men won't dare to pursue. Armed with unique combination of good looks, natural talent, humility, unmatched charisma and hard work, it is safe to conclude that Gina Carano is the face of the female MMA.

I hope that EliteXC will resume very soon. Gina Carano should then be fitted against Cristiane "Cyborg" Santos for a much anticipated fight. And after the smoke has been cleared, Gina will have a new record of 8W-0L-0D.

Addendum: EliteXC is already gone with contracts of its fighters still hanging. Rumor has it that Gina Carano might sign under the WEC or the Zuppa banners once the contract issues have been settled. Nonetheless, Gina is sorely missed in the octagon and fans would like her back in the soonest possible time. I'll register in any efforts to pressure the big bosses of fighting outfits.
