No sports of note last night, so here’s some video of Gina Carano working out outside of Madison Square Garden after the press conference to promote the upcoming Carano/Cyborg brawl on August 15. After those two got through mugging and promoting for the camera, our heroine took things outside and put on a little shadow boxing/light sparring exhibition.
Yeah, to say it’s a slow news day would be an understatement.
This little “female fighter choking out a male host” meme is proving to be an effective way to market upcoming MMA brawls, much like the Gina Carano/Cris Cyborg fight which takes place on August 15. The buzz surrounding Carano/Cyborg is growing exponentially, thanks in large part to the “choking out” videos popping up here, there, and everywhere. It started when Cyborg choked out Aaron Tru of MMAWorldwide.com.
