Gina Carano pretending to fight in a movie is about 82,000% better than you actually trying to fight. Everyday I get a chance to see Carano looking hot is another day I question what exactly am I doing with my life. The fact that Carano and I haven’t started dating should make angels cry at night. If she wants a guy that loves to rock Crocs, has an extreme fascination with The Golden Girls and loves to drink cosmopolitans…then I’m the guy for her.
Carano was inspired to train in MMA by drinking a 40oz of Olde English. Story goes that her and her ex-boyfriend were sitting in his parents house throwing back 40 ounces of Olde English and her boyfriend was talking to his dad about MMA, proclaiming that he could do it. His dad said it would be impossible for him to do anything with a 40oz in his hand (which is not true, I’ve stolen golf carts and nearly saved the world with a 40oz in my hand). So he put it down, started training and stopped drinking for an entire year. Apparently he’s an instructor somewhere and will regret the day he broke up with her for the rest of his life.
After seeing her boyfriend train, Gina was somewhat inspired to do the same thing. Gina says she really got into the sport after a Muay-Thai Master called her ‘fat’. If I ever called my ex-girlfriend fat, it would have probably resulted in a stainless steel wok slammed against my head (it’s happened before). Apparently when you’re a Muay-Thai Master, you can call a chick anything and get away with it. Maybe ‘fat’ in Thai means ‘You’re a hot chick and need to train in MMA’.
In a recent interview with Sherdog, Scott Coker still has his hopes astronomically high that Gina Carano will return to Strikeforce in 2011.
“I know Gina is not going to go out the way that it went down. Her whole thing now is just timing and scheduling. She’s got the movie coming out in April, I believe, and she’s got some more stuff on her plate … I know, just like Cung [Le] or other people that have [been] part of the film business … they’re still a fighter by heart, believe me, and they have that desire to compete. I think Gina will be the same. It’s just a matter of time. I believe she will fight in 2011.”
You don’t have to sell me on Gina Carano. Chick could swim in a jar of mustard for two hours and I’m going to watch it. Score for all sexually repressed guys everywhere. [Source]
