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 and telling him 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 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 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’.
Scott Coker guaranteed we would see Gina Carano back in the cage at some point in 2011. It’s now November 11th and there hasn’t been a single morsel of a Carano fight aside from when she was supposed to compete in Dallas, TX at the Strikeforce HW GP: Overeem vs. Lesnar. Things sort of collapsed and everyone in the arena was just sitting there, drowning in ‘2011 NBA Champions: Dallas Mavericks’ merchandise inside the American Airlines Center.
Now it looks like Gina Carano has a second trailer for her new movie ‘Haywire.’ Personally, I’ll watch the entire film because I’m passionate about MMA and simultaneously sexually attracted to Gina Carano.
