Tara LaRosa: "I was surprised that Cyborg made weight"

Tara LaRosa talks about Cyborg and Gina Carano.

On Cyborg and her win over Baszler...

"Yeah, Cyborg hits hard, she punches very straight and she is aggressive. I still kind of want to see more of her ground, but yeah, she was pretty good."

"I know sheís pretty good at that, but from my personal opinion, Iím not really big on leg locks in MMA because if you screw them up, you will lose position. Personally, I donít believe in going for them. Itís a very high risk with low reward. I was very surprised and impressed that Cyborg made weight. Once they got into the cage, she looked like a whole Ďnother human being."

On Gina Carano...

"Weíre cool! Weíve been cool. Weíve been cool for awhile. All of us had a great time. It was Me, Gina, Shayna, Elaina Maxwell and Tonya Evinger and we were all hanging out; it was great. We had a ball. That stuff about us not being cool was all made up on some forum. Weíre cool; weíre all cool. Iím friends with everybody."

On what she's been up to...

"I just did NAGA (North American Grappling Association)-The Battle at the Beach. I won the womenís division and I lost my first menís match, but it was on points. I didnít get submitted. Iím getting back to the grappling circuit to keep myself active."

On her next fight...

"Iím fighting again November 1st."

She talks about other stuff like her training and Affliction in the full interview:

How has a leg lock got low rewards? If you pull it off, you've won.....?

Was she grappling in a mixed tourney (men & women)?
