Gina Carano says fighting and having sex has certain similarities

Quote:

Hey now.

Former female Strikeforce star and one of Esquire's "sexiest women alive," Gina Carano, is dishing some dirt on her approach to the fight game.

"Conviction" hasn't seen action since a first round beatdown at the hands of Brazilian "Cyborg" Cristiane Santos back in Aug. 2009. She was supposed to return to action earlier this year against Sarah D'Alelio; however, she was forced off the card for vague medical reasons.

Despite her absence, the one time "face of women's MMA" still has a "weird connection" to her past opponents, almost like they "had sex." That's according to her recent interview in Bullett Magazine:

"I think that fighting is similar to sex in that people have to let their guards down—well, some people do and some people don’t. The secret is chemistry. When two people are attacking each other, that chemistry is definitely going to come out in an interesting way. When you fight someone, you share the experience with that one person, and you’re never going to have that experience with someone else—even in another fight. I always have this weird connection with them. It really is like we had sex. I’ll always know how many people I fought."

It would be interesting to hear if any of the male fighters in our audience share this same perspective.

During her more than two-year long mixed martial arts (MMA) hiatus, Carano has kept herself busy thanks to a high-profile acting role in the upcoming "Haywire" movie from director Steven Soderbergh. "Haywire" is scheduled for release in Jan. 2012.

No timetable has been set for her return to MMA.

I dont think the male fighters are going to be pleased with this.

From now on when i see a fighter im going to ask him "So how did it feel having SORT OF sex with this guy?"
