Mixed Martial Arts fighter Gina Carano is getting ready for the fight of her life. When Gina faces Cristiane "Cyborg" Santos Saturday it will be the first time two women have headlined a night of MMA fighting.

Gina Carano, a rare mix of brawn and beauty, was named to Maxim's Hot 100 list for 2009. Carano told ESPN recently that it's annoying when men meet her and she feels like she's being sized up, but to be fair, she does say cage fighting is a lot like sex.

From ESPN:
ESPN: I've heard you say that cage fighting is a lot like sex. Explain that one.

Yeah, it's true! I have said that before, and I'm not sure anybody knew that I was serious. What I mean is, fighting is so real, and it's such a natural thing between two people. You're feeding off of each other's intensity; you go back and forth, and there's a strong chemistry of it all. That whole setup is very similar to sex. You have to react to each other. Sometimes the momentum flows well, and other times, one person overpowers it and it's not so nice. See, it's the same thing!
