I love it. She really is pretty hot, I always thought that pretty-boy Gracie family could produce some good looking women, and fighting's in the blood, right? :D

Why do I get the feeling the only reason she's an "honorable mention" is because she's smokin' hot??

Because you're right. She is hot, and she's only in here b/c her last name is Gracie. You'll notice that the vast majority of Gina's pictures portray her as primarily an athlete and a legitimate contender, the hot girl aspect is there but it doesn't take center stage.

She's no different to me than the anonymous hot women who are told how to triangle each other for pictures.

Hey now, Kyra Gracie may not have much MMA experience but as a grappler she is actually very accomplished.

Ripped from her WP page:

* 3x World BJJ Champion (2004,2006,2008)
* 5x Pan American BJJ Games Champion (2001, 2002, 2003, 2005, 2007)
* 5x Brazilian BJJ Champion (1998, 1999, 2000, 2001, 2004)
* 5x New York State BJJ Champion (1998, 1999, 2000, 2001, 2002)
* 2x ADCC (Abu Dhabi Combat Club) Submission Wrestling World Champion (2005, 2007)
* 1x Asiatic BJJ Champion (2006)

Here's some pics and video of her against the likes of Tara LaRosa and Megumi Fuji:

But seriously, no other high level grappler (who doesn't fight MMA) is featured as an "Honorable Mentions" in any of the other divisions.

That's why I said what I said. I'm sure there are other hot women out there who are talented grapplers, they just aren't from a high-profile family influential in that area.
Granted, but I still think that 20+ championship wins including two ADCC wins makes this statement:

She's no different to me than the anonymous hot women who are told how to triangle each other for pictures.
uncharitable at the least. Respect where respect is due: she's not just some model who did a triangle one time for a photo shoot.

I concede yr second point. I was kind of b!tchy. Don't I get to be cranky on here occasionally lol?

I still think Gina, Shayna, etc. could wipe up the ring/octagon with her though.
