Cagewriter - Mixed Martial Arts

Cristiane "Cyborg" Santos got plenty of attention for her choke-out of MMA fan Aaron Tru. Tru admitted on ESPN on Friday that it was a set-up. Gina Carano did something similar on "Sports Science" yet somehow the aftermath looked very attractive. Sleeping in Carano's lap ... sign me up.

Watch Carano choke out host John Brenkus (4:00 mark):

This was actually a very cool piece where they measure the force of Carano's knees, punches, kicks and elbows. Carano is blasting away at a life-like dummy and breaks one of the ribs (1:55 mark). She can actually get off eight blows in three seconds producing 4,800 pounds of force! The show gives the translation:

"In eight seconds, Gina could - breaks your ribs, give you a concusion, shatter your nose, rupture your spleen, cause internal bleeding and put you down for the count."

Cyborg. Schmyborg.
