Strikeforce MMA: Carano vs. Cyborg

As a man, I certainly wouldn't want to fight a buff Brazilian named Cyborg (or Android or Killbot—or, honestly, even Smith)—and if I were an attractive woman, even less so, but that's exactly what American mixed martial arts (MMA) fighter, cover girl and former American Gladiator Gina Carano did on a recent Saturday night on Showtime.

Since DirecTV bestowed free premium channels upon me as part of my move, I DVR'd the fight and watched all five minutes of it the following Sunday morning—and five minutes was all it took as Cris Cyborg took Gina Carano to the mat and repeatedly punched her in the head as Carano lay huddled in the fetal position—probably looking eerily similar to me during most of my seventh grade football practices.

I'm no big MMA fan but, like watching a George W. Bush press conference, these fights are impossible to turn away from because one simply never knows what will happen next—although with either, bloodshed is a good guess.
