Gina Carano Pics: Her GQ Shoot and the MMA Star's Hottest Photos
After a hiatus, it seems as if this fighting beauty is set to return to her beloved sport.
While it may be on hold for now, her new movie is set to break ticket-sale records with illustrious cast members and breathtaking performances.
With her name flooding the news and a recent GQ photo shoot making its way around the Internet, let's take a look at the hottest pics ever of Gina Carano.
15. The Perfect Motivator
Though provocative and risque, Gina Carano's photo shoot with GQ was also quite honest.
Considering her ex-boyfriend, pro Muay Thai fighter Kevin Ross, introduced her to Muay Thai, it's safe to say she's picturing his face during this precious moment.
14. No Laughing Matter
Considering she has been referred to as "Face of Women's MMA," it's curious as to how any punching bag feels like it has a chance against her.
Gina Carano seems to concur with the notion as she laughs off this misguided piece of furniture.
13. The Fighter
Calm, collected and scar-free, the former No. 3-ranked 145-pound female fighter in the world (according to the Unified Women's MMA Rankings) is always prepared for the spotlight.
Her glaring pupils reek of confidence.
12. Role Modeling

With such an innocent and humorously-warming smile, Gina Carano can't possibly be ignored or despised.
Her opponents can't help but smile when they see this expression, even after a thorough whooping.
10. Stuck in the Moment
As she seemingly attempts "Tebowing," Gina Carano seems to be pensively collecting her thoughts.
With natural ability like this, it's no wonder she was the fastest-rising search on Google and third most searched person on Yahoo! in 2008.
9. A Crushing Blow
While many fans know this sexy MMA fighter from the NBC show American Gladiators, her role as "Crush" drew many eager eyes.
She is not only the crush of numerous sports fans, but Gina Carano can crush any scared opponent without hesitation.
