    dammit. we won't get to see gina in action on the mats. you guys agree with me that she is hot right? i watched that video of the girls of the american gladiators. i swear, half of those girls were really guys. only gina was the true lady. i said it before, and i'll say it again — i would let gina pass my guard any day!

    Yeah I think she's hot but I guess my standards are lower than most. I thought a lot of those Gladiator chicks looked good. I hope she keeps fighting too, but I wouldn't blame her for becoming more successful somewhere else. MMA paydays aren’t as lucrative as they should be unless you're in the big shows fighting at the top of the heap. Even then, some fighters get chump change by comparison. She probably gets paid more to be a gladiator.

    Yeah, I can agree with you on that. She is hot. The girls at the guy I used to work out at looked nowhere near that good. I’m thinking she is going the celeb route like Tito Ortiz and Couture. I hope she keeps fighting.

    I think it's great that she is exploring different avenues other than fighting, it gives us a chance to see her be sexy in more places. I'm not sure if this new American Gladiators is going to have a long run or not, but regardless I can see her kickin ass in the cage again in the future. By the way, has anyone seen the show fightgirls? She's a Muay Thai coach on it, and becuase of that she's the only reason a man might have an excuse to watch Oxygen.

    That sucks I don't even have the Oxygen channel. She is looking good in her Gladiator uniform but I'd rather watch a show with playmates and victoria secret models.
