2009 was a good year for fans of Gina Carano. Sure, she lost that fight with Cris Cyborg and then completely disappeared from the sport for two years. But before she left, she graced us with her smokin hot naked self for an ESPN Body Issue pictorial.
If you’re rusty on the concept of the ESPN Body Issue, it’s basically an excuse to show a bunch of athletes naked and in poses that artfully cover up their icky sinful genitals and mammary glands. 2009 included MMA stars Gina Carano and Randy Couture (only his ears – no saggy full monty, thank Zeus). 2010 had the Cyborgs. Eeeeh.
And now 2011 has … Jon Jones? And that’s it? Goddammit, ESPN … you screwed us again. Where’s the sexy for us male MMA fans? You can check out all of this year’s participants here, but ogling shot putters and sprinters just isn’t as much fun. I can’t wait until Ronda Rousey snaps some people’s arms in half so she can be in this next year.
A MMA Body Issue recap after the jump.
Mr and Mrs Cyborg.
Randy Couture’s nasty ear
And now the pic you’ve been waiting for … Gina Carano. This is a high def image so if you want to … uh … inspect it closer you can ‘View Image’ it up.
