Video: Gina Carano On Ronda Rousey: “It’s Insane — She’s A Beautiful Athlete”

1

The former face of Women’s MMA — Gina Carano — recently shared her thoughts on the current state of the sport, and Women’s MMA in particular.

In a new interview with MMAWeekly.com, Carano spoke about the landmark lineup at UFC 184, which for the first time in UFC history, featured an all female top-billing, with Ronda Rousey vs. Cat Zingano as the main event and Holly Holm vs. Raquel Pennington in the co-main event.

Carano was particularly impressed with the new face of Women’s MMA — UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion “Rowdy” Ronda Rousey.

“It’s insane … she’s a beautiful athlete and there’s so much respect there and I wish her all the best,” said Carano. “And I hope Cat Zingano gets another chance at the UFC [title].”

Not only does Carano feel that Rousey is a beautiful woman, but Rousey shares the sentiment, as she recently referred to Carano as “the hottest female athlete in the world.”
