Gina Carano Is A Daddy’s Girl At Heart But She Can Still Kick The Ever-Living Crap Out Of You


Gina Carano has been known as many things since she entered the realm of public awareness:  Crush on American Gladiators, MMA fighter, pinup girl…Daddy’s girl?

Indeed, despite her rough (yet retaining a mesmerizing feminine exterior), according to her father, Glenn Carano, his daughter is “[s]till the same old Gina”  that he bought Cabbage Patch dolls for when she was a child.

Papa Carano will be on pins and needles Saturday at the HP Pavillion in San Jose, where he will be “[a]s close as I can to the ring…that’s where I’ll be,” when Gina will take on Cristiane “Cyborg” Santos in the biggest fight in her career and likely the biggest fight in the history of female MMA.

“I don’t even want to think to think about those things you’re talking about right now,” says Glenn Carano, a former backup quarterback for the Dallas Cowboys. “She’s my little baby.”

It must be difficult to watch your daughter, who frequently says, “”Daddy, you’re embarrassing me,” whenever her father calls her his baby, go to battle in such a violent exhibition of strength and toughness. Even Carano doesn’t understand why Gina got into it.

“I don’t know,” he says. “I don’t know what forces the middle child to go out and do this kind of’ thing. But I’m extremely proud.”

Good to know. To be honest, I am relieved that the beautiful Carano has a close relationship with her father, as opposed to what I initially envisioned as a complicated relationship with her stepfather, who wouldn’t have referred to her as his “baby” but as his “girlfriend when Mommy’s not around.”

Jeez, that’s just awful, isn’t it? What do you do? I can’t take it back now…

What do you mean I could have just deleted the last paragraph? Sorry, but if there’s one thing you will always find on the Sportress, it is integrity and the willingness to stand by what I originally original post.

Now, if you’ll excuse me, one of my regular readers just informed me that I screwed up yet another post title and I have to fix it.

Here, take a look at a couple more photos of the Carano and talk amongst yourselves. I’ll give you a topic: Gina Carano either terrifies me erotically or she erotically terrifies me. Discuss.




Yeah, I know those two statements mean exactly the same thing. Doesn’t mean they ain’t true.
