MMA’s forerunner Gina Carano is an excellent fighter who won herself a celebrated combat sports career. At present, fans are lauding her skills and beauty not only inside the cage but outside, tagging her as the “face of women’s MMA.”
How can a monster inside the Octagon be this beautiful?
Carano has been earning engagements outside MMA ever since her name bloomed. She’s the first of many mixed martial artists to be featured on ESPN’s “Body Issue.”
The women’s champion may be ruining faces in her fights but the magazine acknowledged her soft and sexy side. Body Issue aims to celebrate various shapes of the human body, featuring nude photos of popular professional athletes.
Other MMA fighters joined the first Body Issue model including Michelle Waterson, Miesha Tate, Cris Cyborg, Jon Jones and Conor McGregor.
Carano, as grateful and proud as she used to be, is taking us a walk down memory lane through her recent Instagram posts. The stunning fighter is meriting herself for being MMA’s first female fighter to have her photo on Body Issue.
Scroll down on this amazing photo gallery from the combat goddess.
