Gina Carano chooses spandex over legitimacy

So it looks like the relationship between Gina Carano and EliteXC is on the rocks. We here at Fightlinker noticed some cracks in the facade a few weeks ago when Gary Shaw referred to issues with Carano as ‘legal matters’ … never a good sign! You’d think Shaw would be happy that one of his up and comers was breaking out on national television, but no … he seemed pretty peeved about the whole situation.

Now things get worse – in all of the promotional appearances Gina has made over the past few weeks, she hasn’t said the word EliteXC once. And the latest news is that she’s off the February EliteXC card. Oh Gina … please don’t tell me you’re choosing American fucking Gladiators over mixed martial arts?

Hey, you can’t blame someone for picking the easier route that pays better. I figure Gina probably had a few more fights left before she started getting her ass whupped by the cream of the female MMA crop. And I bet Gina figured the same thing … it’s not like she’s not training with some of the best fighters in the world at XTreme Couture … working with those people, you know exactly where you stand in the skill department.

So yeah, I can understand why she might be fucking off but it still peeves me off. She was given the role of “the face of women’s MMA” and now she’s ditched that in favor of a cornball show that only exists because of the writer’s strike.

    that is a THIGH!

  • jjdnb says:

    OH I just wanna fuck her in the ass until she begs me to stop and then i’ll fuck her ass some more.
    I’ll tear off her MMA shorts and give her some of my love juice in her ass

  • Lifer says:

    woah there cowboy..

  • zex says:

    jesus shes looks like shes moving up in weight to fight gsp

  • frickshun says:

    She has a cute face but everything else is a little too thick for me. I do think she could get better & beat most mid-tier women. But she definitely sees her future in selling her cute face & dumpy ass. She’ll make a lot more & won’t have to train for it.

    check out the next american gladiator. i guess at the end of the show when it rolls the credits, it says Gina’s name and a special thanks to Gary Shaw. i havent seen it but that is what i have heard

  • Lifer says:

    please put up another new ‘fightlink’. this image of gina carano laying there all prone in her AG outfit on the mainpage is driving me wild with lust.

  • Archivist says:

    Shame if she indeed chose something cheesier than pro wrestling over MMA but i must concur that this outfit makes her look even more oh meow! than usual.

  • Xavier says:

    Good for her. Shaw is a scumbag, female MMA is a joke that is more illegitimate than American Gladiators is. American Gladiators is doing pretty decently in the ratings too and looks like it’s going to stick around for a couple years.

    Doing cool things like Assault or Joust >>>> dealing with Gary Shaw and his retarded son with their shitty female MMA division.

    Good for Carano, nobody should hate on someone moving on up to a better piece of the pie-yi-yi-yi.

  • Roxy says:

    I guess there’s no super rush for her to fight everyone in the world RIGHT NOW. If she found something cool to do for a while, why not put off fighting until another opportunity arises? Maybe someone’ll make a statement later. Plus, if she really is a newcomer, she still has lots of improvement to look forward to in training.

  • Fightlinker Jackal says:

    I’m not quite sure why everyone is overreacting. It’s only a show, it’ll be over and she’ll get back to fighting just like every other mma fighter.
