Action girl Gina Carano

In a room of 1,000 people, men and women, it's probably safe to say that Gina Carano could probably pound into submission about 800 of them. A bad MMA fighter with a record of 7 wins, 0 losses at the time of writing, with 3 KOs and one submission, Gina is also known to viewers-who-don't-watch-Gossip Girl as Crush, on American Gladiators. Weighing in at 141 pounds and standing 5'8", Gina was one of the main attractions of the first Elite XC cage fighting event ever televised on CBS. She traumatized folks watching free primetime TV by destroying her opponent in a most un-girly fashion. Soon thereafter, Gina achieved the distinction of becoming the most searched-for person on Google for the month of May 2008, waaay ahead of Obama. If you didn't know, now you know. Since Gina can look deceivingly cute and sweet in pictures and a few parents reading this may now be inspired to switch their daughters from ballet to Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and Muay-thai, I've posted the clip below to showcase her grace in the octagon and the poetry of the sport:
