No one including Carano should be freaked out by Cyborg 'reporter choke'

Boy, you folks are gullible. The video of the Cristiane "Cyborg" Santos' blogger choke out is funny to view but the cries of outrage and fear are ridiculous. It was clearly a set-up. No one is saying the actual choke was fake and Aaron Tru was really out cold. But the lead-up to the choke was clearly a set-up. There's not a person on the face of the earth who wouldn't fight the choke a little. Even Las Vegas radio star Paul Howard had his left eye pop out and tapped 17 times when Phil Baroni slapped on a choke.

The phonyness of the whole thing is also why Gina Carano had little reaction:

"I just watched it," Carano told the L.A. Times. "I respect 'Cyborg,' she's extremely aggressive. I'll have to switch my game plan a little bit to combat her, but I'm not stressing too much. I know I'll have a good game plan."

Please cut it out with any talk that Cyborg is out of control, extremely dangerous or unprofessional. That said, nice move by Tru and MMAWorldwide.com in getting their names out there.
