Gina Carano is giving new meaning to those little infographics that pop up as UFC fighters are walking into the cage, saying things like “well-versed at submission”, “good ground and pound”, and “likes to bang”. She recently did an interview with Bullett Media in which she says that when she is fighting, she feels like she’s really “sticking it to” her opponent:
Q: You once said, “Fighting is like sex in its intensity, as an exchange of energy between two people.” When you’re in the ring, do you feel as if you and your opponent are connecting in a way that only the two of you can understand?
A: 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.
Q: Do you do much research into those against whom you’re fighting?
A: Yes, if I’m going to fight her, I want to know who she is: Does she drink? Does she have a boyfriend? Is she secure? Does she love attention? Does she love being sexy? Does she wish she were a straight male?
Q: Those characteristics manifest themselves in the ring?
A: Yeah, totally. If you’re feeling good about yourself and you’re feeling sexy, then the last thing you want to do is fight. It’s my job to figure out their weaknesses.
So, those who were saddened when they found out that Kit Cope doesn’t actually have a Gina Carano sex tape to release can take heart… if they’re into lesbian porn. It’s interesting to see that Gina is evidently one of those crazy stalker chicks who does a full background check on you before she sleeps with you and keeps a tally of all her “conquests”.
Based on this, it’s not surprising that Gina found her string of “one-fight stands” unsatisfying enough to quit. I mean, who could handle the emotional roller coaster of having a “connection” and “chemistry”, but not being wined and dined? Evidently she was so disheartened by this that she did poorly at her last “performance” after forgetting whether she was coming to bang or simply banging to come.
