Don't forget to watch the Gina Carano-Chris Santos fight tonight. 

It's going to be showing live around most of the country except the West Coast, where it will seen on tape-delay at 10:30 p.m.

I for one will be watching, since it's going to be a historical bout.

The 145-pound bout between Carano (7-0) and Brazil's "Cyborg" Santos (7-1) is being billed as the biggest-ever mixed-martial-arts bout between women—and is the first female bout to serve as a headliner.

Carano, who has become the face of women's MMA, calls this her hardest bout yet.

"Cyborg is just a great fighter," Carano said. "I have a lot of respect for her. I'm not going to lie: this is going to be tough. But I'm going to try to make it as easy as possible."
