UFC Quick Quote: Gina Carano will 'get more press and media attention than UFC 100'

"Does it have something to do with her looks? Absolutely..... Most importantly, Gina has intensity. People like to watch her fight. That’s something that isn’t taught. You just have it or you don’t. Gina has the looks, the skills, the intensity, and one more thing -- the timing. She is resonating with people now, people who are finally ready to watch female fighters. I believe Gina when she tells me she chose Strikeforce over the UFC, because she thought it was a better decision for women’s MMA in general.... I guarantee you she will single-handedly garner more press and media attention than UFC 100. Just wait and see. The interest Gina generates will turn a whole new section of fans onto Strikeforce and MMA, and I wholeheartedly believe we will be watching Carano, Robbie Lawler, Jake Shields, and the rest of Strikeforce’s expanding stable on CBS by January 2010."

-- Loretta Hunt over at Sherdog.com guarantees that female mixed martial artist, Gina Carano, will ultimately snag more headlines and create bigger buzz than the 800-pound gorilla's historic centennial pay-per-view show on July 11. Carano competes under the Strikeforce banner, which has a network television deal with CBS. In fact, her five-round title fight against Cristiane "Cyborg" Santos will actually headline the next show on Aug. 15. So what do you think -- is being a talented female fighter who is cute and competes on CBS enough to eclipse the interest and coverage of UFC 100 generates within the next two weeks?
