Carano Featured in NY Times

By Jake Rossen Aug 5, 2009
New York Times (and Real Fighter) contributor Michael Brick has an ace profile of Strikeforce headliner Gina Carano up on the newspaper’s site, and it’s a welcome change from the standard-issue girl fight aesthetic so popular among the men’s magazines.

Carano, writes Brick, grew up the product of a “strict religious upbringing” in the Sodom and Gomorrah nest of Las Vegas and was once hustled out of “Forrest Gump” because of profanity. (It is a little wonder she pursued a career of punching people in the face.) She and opponent Cristiane Santos will split a $200,000 purse on August 15.
