In addition to picking a fight with Chris Cyborg over who can submit a TV reporter faster—she has also picked a fight with Dana White over who can draw more attention.

As an industry insider, Loretta Hunt has clearly picked Gina to win by stating: "Gina would single-handedly garner more press and media attention than UFC 100"

Fortunately for all of us MMA fans we have a chance to find out, come this Saturday August 15th, as in addition to scheduled Strikeforce event on Showtime—we have also pleasure to see the UFC 100 replay on Spike TV.

Dana White has clearly heard my cry to see better fights from UFC 100—as the card they show is much improved from what was shown on PPV.

Strikeforce fight card:

  • Gina “Conviction” Carano (7-0) vs. Cris “Cyborg” (7-1) – 145lb Female Championship Bout
  • Renato "Babalu" Sobral (35-8) vs. Gegard Mousasi (25-2-1) - Light Heavyweight Championship Bout
  • Gilbert “El Nino” Melendez (15-2) vs. Mitsuhiro Ishida (18-5-1) – Lightweight Interim Championship Bout
  • Jay "The Thoroughbred" Hieron (17-4) vs. Jesse "JT Money" Taylor (13-3)
  • and hopefully we will see Mike "Mak" Kyle (12-6-1) vs. Fabricio "Vai Cavalo" Werdum (11-4-1) from undercard.
