Steroids in MMA
Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Pics: Gina Carano at the 2009 ESPY Awards

(Props: MMAFightGirls)

From Wednesday’s taping of the 2009 ESPY awards; the face of women’s MMA still cleans up real nice. Woefully uninformed sports site labeled that last pic "Gina Carano and bodyguard" — though maybe Carano will need one when she meets Cris Cyborg in their Strikeforce title fight on August 15th

I can see the movie Poster!

Zuffa Presents: The Body Guard II "Body Odor"

Starring Gina as the white non-cracked out version of Whitney Houston and Cyborg as the Brazilian "Blanca" from Street Fighter II version of Kevin Costner.

Those boots really add to the femininity of Cyborg. Nice touch.

Bet there is a good kitty between them thighs....Yummy
Fedor vs. Bas- July 20, 2009 at 10:50 am
I would have labeled that last pic, "Gina Carano and boyfriend"

As for the fight, I expect Santos to win this. From what I've seen, Carano is the smoother striker so if she can keep it on the feet, she's definitely got a shot. But if it goes to the ground, I see Santos controlling her and breaking her down. Will be interesting to see both of them in the ring though. Outside of a Megumi Fujii vs. Ana Michelle Tavares rematch, I can't think of any two female fighters I'd rather see in a bout right now.

And talking about how someone looks *on the red carpet* isn't setting the sport back. Those photos are all about trying to capitalize on sex appeal for publicity. If Gina was concerned about people diggin' her looks, she could just show up in a suit, ok?

Thank you, it's good to get this forum back on track! I was half expecting the topic to start into how they were going to wear their hair the night of the fight.

Cyborg's stand up is vicious, but seems a little one dimensional and over aggressive to me. Granted, all of her stoppages have been KO's and she has never actually submitted anyone in the ring, but she hasn't had to!

Hey, who's big dude in Frankenstein boots with Carano there...
*click through to full-size pic*

Those so-called doughy legs can keep me stuck in guard all nite. Sheesh, someone's gotta be a pig here, people!

PS - those pics were taken by a horrible photographer who seems to have been standing on a ladder when he took these pics.

@ Wyatt

Cyborg has the BJJ advantage. Her speciality is Muay Thai. Check out the vid of Gina's fight against Kelly Kobold and that will give you the sum of her skills on the ground. Gina can stuff a takedown and uses the cage to get back to her feet pretty well. But on the floor is not where her best skills are. She's not going to be anxious to hit the mat with Cyborg, but she should stuff about half of Christine's takedowns.

If they stay on they're feet, Gina can win this fight. If Cyborg gets the chance to grind this out on the floor (ala GSP) Gina's gonna have a long night.

That would be one hell of a threesome Cyborg isn't a "girl" you'd say no too just mumble and whimper...........

I think it will be a Cyborg beat down i really like Gina she seems very likable & sincere but i see her getting outclassed badly i hate to say :(
Wyatt- July 20, 2009 at 9:38 am
Wow, anyone want to talk about the actual fight that's coming up or anything? Is she attractive, is she not attractive, I thought this was an MMA page not the US Weekly that my sister reads.

Stop setting the sport back!

It's going to be a good fight, we've never really seen either of these two in a full on big name fight. Carano has smooth striking and does a good job of not getting hit, and Cyborg fights like you just stole something. I don't know who to give the jujitsu advantage, I've only seen them choke out reporters lately.

@ CJ,

You would, but that is probably beside the point. I see a tendency in most guys to prop themselves up by saying, "X chick isn't hot man, I wouldn't give her a second look if she walked by"...And then, when she walks by, get the point.

But I agree, though: she is a fighter, and that's probably what she should concentrate on if she wants to be taken legitimately.

i am 100% positive that cyborg is going to make carano bleed in her uterus.
Old_Bald_and_Irish- July 20, 2009 at 9:03 am
@ Perdew

"i am 100% that cyborg is going to make carano bleed in her uterus."

...but only once a month.
two_black_eyes- July 20, 2009 at 8:45 am
Carano is definitely a cute girl, and a good character for the sport. but those chute box fighters have a tendency to do lasting damage to faces so she better come ready on fight night. i hope she takes it but damn cyborg looks scary.

The label for the picture was a joke dumbass! Look at the picture above it, its Kurt Warner and his wife Brenda, they label it Brenda Warner and wife. Not a very good joke but a joke nonetheless.
CJ- July 20, 2009 at 8:35 am
Just to clarify. My earlier comments were very mean spirited. Monday morning, you guys know how it is. I think Carano is great, very cute. I just don't think she's THAT great, in terms of her looks.
CJ- July 20, 2009 at 8:26 am

honestly she's not all that. if she wasn't famous and walked passed me on the street i wouldn't give her a second look. she's a very thick girl. i guess some guys like that look but i'm not into it.

She's pretty but she's definitely nothing to eat through a mile of shit over.

some of the guys on this blog act like she's megan fox or something.

she's much better at fighting than at being a hot chick. and she probably is plenty happy with that. so w/e.
Disco-Platypus- July 20, 2009 at 8:20 am

With all due respect: you would probably eat through a mile of shit to sniff her ass, as my [...twisted...] high school gym teacher would say. She is very attractive, however; her weight issues - or lack thereof, really - and attractiveness are pretty incidental to the issue, in my opinion.
Surfin Dave- July 20, 2009 at 8:00 am
Did she have to wear the Frankenstein boots and earrings that look like bolts in her neck?
Jugger- July 20, 2009 at 7:58 am
Carano is pretty cute... but her bodyguard? *Shudder*
CJ- July 20, 2009 at 7:55 am

Haha, very true.

Weird, normally you would think the women would be catty and at eachother's throats. Instead they seem chilled out and all the dudes in this sport act like middle schoolers talking trash non stop.
Old_Bald_and_Irish- July 20, 2009 at 7:53 am
@ CJ

Trust me, dude. You wouldn't want to get kicked with those legs!

Not to take away from everyone ripping on Gina's weight (I'm sure all of you commenting are in peak physical condition) or Cyborg's less-femine physique (face it: 98% of you would hit it; regardless of what you stumbled upon in the dark)

...but isn't nice, for a change, to see two athletes preparing for the fight of their careers and getting along? No trash talk needed. No faux rivalries. They seem to have a mutual respect and are both looking forward to pushing each others faces in.

...I luv this sport!
CJ- July 20, 2009 at 7:44 am
okay that was a little mean. carano is still a relatively pretty young lady. she's got a nice smile.
