Gina Carano gets naked

It’s what the whole MMA world has waited for and what guys all over the nation have envisioned in their minds ever since the buxom brunette made her first appearance in the ring back in 2006. Yes, Gina Carano got naked. After tipping the scales at 142.75 lbs., Carano disrobed hoping the shorts and miniskirt she was wearing would bring her weight down to the negotiated fighting weight of 140 lbs. On her third attempt at the scales, the lack of clothes brought Carano’s weight down to 141 lbs. which was acceptable and also the same weight her opponent, Kelly Kobold weighed in at. One pound over the weight limit is allowed as long as it is not a title fight.
