Gina Joy Carano born April 16, is an American actress, television personality, fitness model and a former mixed martial artist. Her popularity led to her being called the "face of women's MMA " although Carano herself rejected the title  and was ranked 5th on a list of the "Top 10 Influential Women" of Cyborg , the first time two women headlined a major MMA event; Cyborg won. Outside the ring, Carano performed as Crush in the revamped reality series American Gladiators. Carano has pursued a career in acting since she retired from competition. She has two sisters, one older and one younger.

So tell me, how can you NOT like a girl that doesn't seem to have her complaints about what she does? If I ran a gym and I had a girl like her as part of my roster of fighters, I wouldn't care that she was bashing my face in. Personally, I think it's the blue dress that brings out the girl in her, but it's the smile that has me thinking about Gina all day and all night.
