There’s no denying it. Gina Carano brings a certain amount of sex appeal to the cage that no one else in the sport does. So much so, most of the men watching her fight probably aren’t thinking about just fighting when she’s on camera if you know what I mean. Remember Mauro Ranallo’s infamous “25 cm pole” line he let rip when Gina fought Tonya Evinger? Yeah, exactly.
Well, Gina isn’t exactly thinking about sex too when she’s knocking some poor girl’s teeth in, but this little comment she dropped in an interview with Bullett probably isn’t going to help anybody get their mind out of the gutter the next time she steps in the cage.
I think that fighting is similar to sex in that people have to let their guards down—well, some people do and some people don’t. The secret is chemistry. When two people are attacking each other, that chemistry is definitely going to come out in an interesting way. When you fight someone, you share the experience with that one person, and you’re never going to have that experience with someone else—even in another fight. I always have this weird connection with them. It really is like we had sex. I’ll always know how many people I fought.
Um, so when does Gina fight again?
