On June 10, 2006 Gina Carano entered the cage for her first ever professional MMA fight. It was the first sanctioned women’s MMA fight in Nevada. Gina took on Leiticia Pestova and put on a first round ground and pound beat down clinic, and just like that, a star was born.
Fast-forward three years and six fights later and Gina Carano remains undefeated at 7-0. On Aug. 15, 2009 she will face the toughest opponent of her career as she battles Cristiane “Cyborg” Santos for the undisputed Strikeforce 145 lbs. women’s title.
