Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Gina Carano Knows What She Weighs, But That Doesn’t Mean She Has to Tell You

(Lose the huge sunglasses and that’s a 1/4 pound, at least.)

Every time Gina Carano fights we always hear the same question: will she make weight? Since the answer she gives is always the same, even when it turns out not to be true, people have turned to asking what she weighs at the present moment. Carano sounds like she’s tired of all weight-related queries, and had this to say to AOL Fanhouse:

“I’m going to weigh 140 pounds next Friday. How much I weigh right now I’d rather keep to myself because I don’t want to answer any more questions about it. …I’ve got really high expectations for this weigh-in.”

Two things here:

1) I completely understand why Carano would be sick of that question. I also think she’s smart enough to know why she keeps hearing it and how she can make it stop.

2) She’s got high expectations? For a weigh-in? That’s a phrase you usually hear from NFL coaches before the season or defense attorneys who know their clients are probably guilty. The weigh-in should be a sure thing. It’s just getting up on a scale, which you get plenty of chances to do beforehand.

Carano did say she’s hired a nutritionist for this bout, so maybe that means there won’t be any issues. If there are, I seem to remember doing an interview on MMA Rated radio with Kelly Kobald, who hinted at a contingency plan she had in the event that Carano missed weight. On a related note, Kobald admitted to weighing 160 as of today — twenty pounds from the goal weight. She’s either really confident she can shed that by next Friday, or else, like me, she has a weakness for hot wings.

I didn't see the picture (guess I better join the forum afterall), so I was only going by the text. My bad.

I could go for some wings though!

@ "thekendoll "

Dude, I made it up and Photoshopped the pic.

It would be cool if she was a competitive eater....
2inchpecker- September 25, 2008 at 5:49 pm
god i would munch on that after 3 rounds of fighting and lick her feet
thekendoll- September 25, 2008 at 5:40 pm
I can't find anything on Google that says Kobold is a competative eater.

Got some links OBI?

If it's true, I may have just become her newest fan.

Gina Looks like a stipper that just left Rhino that morning, in that pic. maybe she should have lost the 2lb shades, as she came in about 5lbs over that day.

her dream is for Elite Xc or UFC to start a womens 205lb division.

I would like Gina to put me in a 'Boob Triangle'. Seriously tho her 15-20 pound boobs are probably what made her miss weight last time. If she put me on the pay roll I work work them things till they pop.

Philadelphai = Philadelphia
Desert = Dessert

And listen to you guys, making your dirty little "I'd do her 'this way'" remarks. Perhaps if you spent less time talking on the net and more doing in real life, you might actually get some this lifetime.

Thanks for helping keep womens' MMA where it is.

Hopefully her aunt Flo doesn't corner her. I could see a ringside doctor calling a stop to the fight due to a severely bleeding gash? OH!!!!

Gina Carano's smile, personality, good looks, and MMA skill make her extremely attractive in my mind. Just go find an interview with her, or listen to a radio show with her--I can't really picture a real woman being more attractive in so many ways than she.

step right up sit on my face...fatass here guesses your weight...and i eat the difference.
Where I'm from...- September 25, 2008 at 12:30 am
it's rude to ask a woman her weight.

These reporters have no class.

I offered to give gina an enema - but I haven't heard back

I love watching Gina fight. But she really needs to make weight. Her celebrity status in bringing a lot of attention to female MMA. If she doesn't get her act together she will be replaced by an up and comer who is just as hot and can make weight every time.
Niggajitsu- September 24, 2008 at 11:36 pm
Gina and Rachelle Leah at the same time. In a perfect world this would happen

A weakness for Hot Wings?

Well looky what I found:

Kelly Kobald, a 160-pound woman known as 'The Tough Fat Bitch,' won Philadelphia's annual Wing Bowl chicken-wing eating contest in a dramatic overtime on Friday.
Kobald, from Minneapolis, Minnesota, consumed 167 wings, beating Ed 'Cookie' Jarvis by two wings in a two-minute overtime round, the first in 10 years.

In December, Kobald was crowned the "There's Always Room for Desert" Champion after downing nearly five pounds of treats in 10 minutes, beating her closest rival — 405-pound Eric Booker_ by a single bite.

Despite her size, Kobald is no lightweight on the professional eating circuit. She's eaten 43 tacos in 11 minutes to claim victory in the World Champion Chicken Taco Eating Contest. She also holds the female world record for eating 24 hot dogs in 12 minutes and for eating 68 hard-boiled eggs in 8 minutes.

She also has a mixed martial arts record is 14 - 0 - 1

To see a picture of Kelly at the Philadelphai Wing Bowl, go here:

I'll weigh her in, shes just gotta sit in one spot if you know wut i mean you know wut in mean??
10pound- September 24, 2008 at 11:13 pm
Muffin... I completely and solidly agree. Met her this year in San Deezy. If anything, her personality and smile are even more infectious in person.
tk__bags- September 24, 2008 at 11:11 pm
she's cute in a sport filled with ladies that look like ken shamrock's nut sack. not hot, but doable, at least until her face absorbs too much leather. decent rack, heavy legs and is going to balloon up once she stops fighting.
mmmiles- September 24, 2008 at 11:05 pm
She's looking pretty tight in that picture.

Making weight should not be an issue for a professional athlete. Is Carano going to get swept under the rug as more women come into the sport, and, well.... we're going to feel a little silly worrying about some fighter that can't make weight?

Or does her hotness trump it? I wish I was saying this was some kind of MMA nerd reaction to the only girl in the sport, but she actually IS pretty good looking. Does this affect her future, judges scores, fighting purses? If she makes out with her opponent will she automatically win Fight of the Night?
tk__bags- September 24, 2008 at 11:04 pm
her tits look bigger and shaw is totally cscoping out her vag
Muffin- September 24, 2008 at 10:32 pm
I for one would loved to be crushed under Gina's hot sweaty body.
