How do I always get stuck doing pieces about the hottest women in MMA?
I hate my life.
And yes, I'm being sarcastic.
Gina and Miesha are two of the hottest women in the sport, but as most non-shallow men know, looks aren't everything.
Aside from being smoking hot, both these women could kick your butt in a heartbeat. And, believe it or not, they actually have personalities.
So which babe is the "Total Package"? Let's break it down.
Before competing in the first ever sanctioned woman's MMA fight in Nevada, Gina compiled a 12-1-1 record in Muay Thai.
After focusing all her efforts on mixed martial arts, Carano has amassed a record of 7-1 while winning three of her fights by knockout.
Tate holds a record of a record of 9-2 and also has three wins via knockout. However, Gina's 14 Muay Thai bouts should give her the edge in the striking department.
While in high school, Miesha was on the boy's wrestling team. In 2005, she won the woman's state championship. She then won at the World Team Trials in the 158 pound division.
To date, four of Tate's nine victories have come by way of submission.
Carano had been working on her ground game with Xtreme Couture. So far, she only has one win via submission.
Outside of the cage, Gina has been a very busy woman.
On television, she appeared as "Crush" on the reinvention of "American Gladiators" and was a mentor to up-and-coming female fighters on Oxygen's reality series "Fight Girls."
On the big screen, she starred in "Ring Girls," was featured in "Blood and Bone," and is starring in the upcoming movie "Knockout,"
Tate has yet to be featured on television or in any movies, but I believe she's not far away from achieving that level of stardom.
Now I have never had the pleasure to talk to either Gina or Miesha personally, so I must base this off of what my colleagues who have spoken with them had to say.
Miesha is a down to earth, smart, funny, classy, tomboy-ish girl.
Gina, on the other hand, um...
Well let's just say that Miesha is liked more than Gina.
And now we get to what everyone wants to see.
While there are no doubts that Gina is smoking hot, there's just something about her that says "I can kick your ass."
Miesha has a much more feminine look. While she could kick your ass, you would never think it just looking at her. Just look at the next slide.
And the next...
And the next...
Winner by a landslide—Tate
By the score of three to two, Miesha Tate wins the title of MMA's Total Package!
While Gina possess better striking and have more crossover appeal (for now), Miesha "The Total Package" Tate not only has the better ground game, but also possesses the two other traits men look for in a woman—personality and looks.
But please don't tell Gina about this. I don't want her coming to my house and beating me up.
