Another day, another Gina Carano video interview where she wears a funny little hat to accentuate how attractive she is. You know, no big deal. The interesting thing here is that she doesn’t shy away from talking about how filming American Gladiators has negatively affected her training for the May 31 Elite XC bout. She doesn’t seem too worried about it. As they say, pride goeth before an ass-whipping on live network TV.
In other news…
- Sherdog reports that Affliction has officially announced the bout between Paul Buentello and Aleksander Emelianenko on the July 19 fight card, as well as the signing of Antonio Rogerio Nogueira, the younger brother of the UFC champ. No word yet on who Nogueira will fight or what will be done with Buentello’s body following the bout, though one assumes that Emelianenko will keep it as a trophy for at least a couple of days.
- Demian Maia and Jason MacDonald will both get a step up in competition when they face each other at UFC 87 in August, says MMA Mania. Both are coming off impressive wins, and the UFC has done well to put this match-up on the undercard of the Brock Lesnar-Mark Coleman show, which will also feature a lightweight bout between Kenny Florian and Roger Huerta. Go on and say you aren’t ordering that pay-per-view. You’re kidding yourself.
