The life of a mixed martial arts fighter has changed dramatically since the sports’ inception some years ago. From movie roles to commercials to photo shoots to interviews, the daily routine for a fighter is anything but routine these days and no one knows that better than Elite XC women’s star, Gina Carano.
As a part of the first main stage women’s fight during the Elite XC inaugural show, Carano proved that female fighting can be just as exciting and tough as what the men do.
She also opened up a giant door for more opportunities as soon after her fighting career took off, including her current 2nd job as “Crush” on American Gladiators.
Carano admits that her new found fame and lifestyle are a big switch, but when given the chance to reach out to new avenues in life, who wouldn’t take the job?
“Anybody who gets a good opportunity would take it,” said Carano in a recent interview with MMAWeekly Radio. “I get a lot of flack from people who are like ‘oh she’s not serious about fighting’ and that’s not it at all. I’m just open minded. I’m not just a fighter, like I’m not just a female. I’m a bunch of things, I have a lot of interests.”LINK
