Gina Carano isn't a fighter. She hasn't been a fighter since 2010. And she lost her last fight. If you're like me, your last memory of Gina Carano as a mixed martial artist was hoping referee Josh Rosenthal would have the heart to stop Cris Cyborg from beating her half to death.

Arguably a contender to champion Ronda Rousey before she was even signed, Holm looked to be a fresh addition to a stagnant division. Rather than risk another potential mauling at the hands of Rousey, the UFC seems to be opting for the big name appeal of women's MMA pioneer turned actress Gina Carano. Carano has been absent from fighting since a 2009 more
