WoW Gina Carano

After Gina Carano achieved a Muay Thai record of 12-1-1, she received an offer to participate in the first-ever female sanctioned MMA bout in Nevada. She was invited to the World Pro Fighting show in Las Vegas to fight Rosi Sexton from the United Kingdom.

She fought on the February 10, 2007, Showtime EliteXC card, defeating Julie Kedzie via unanimous decision in what was called “the fight of the night”. She totally Kicked but!

Her scheduled bout against Jan Finney at the EliteXC/K-1 Dynamite!! USA event on June 2, 2007 was canceled due to illness. The Fight Network and other organizations reported that she was rushed to the hospital via ambulance due to dehydration while attending a World Extreme Cagefighting event as a spectator.

Carano fought on the September 15, 2007, Showtime EliteXC card, where she defeated Tonya Evinger via rear naked choke for her first career win by submission. She proved that she is more than just a great striker.

Along with Lisa King, Carano served as a mentor to aspiring female fighters in the Oxygen reality series Fight Girls. She currently appears as “Crush” on the NBC show American Gladiators. She will additionally be featured in the new Michael Jai White film Blood and Bone slated to be released sometime in 2008.

Carano defeated former Hook N Shoot champion Kaitlin Young on EliteXC: Primetime on May 31, 2008. A day before the fight, Carano failed to make weight for her fight (140) after weighing in at 144.5 lb. Although most MMA organizations set weight classes at 135 (Bantamweight (MMA)) and 145 (Featherweight (MMA)) pounds, EliteXC opted to create a women’s weight class at 140 pounds. Carano agreed to forfeit 12.5% of her “show” purse to Young, and the fight remained on the card.

Her next fight is scheduled for October 4, 2008 at EliteXC: Primetime 3 at the BankAtlantic Center in Sunrise, Florida. Her opponent for that fight will be Kelly Kobald.
