Gina Carano defeats Tonya Evinger

Gina Carano defeated Tonya Evinger by choke submission in a 140-pound female bout.

Carano, who is considered the most popular female competitor in mixed martial arts, got on Evinger's back and then put on a rear-naked choke hold. Evinger submitted 2:53 into the first round.

"I pulled off a submission — my first one — so I was happy about that," Carano said. "But I didn't get to use any punches or kicks so I feel unfulfilled."

Carano improved to 5-0, while Evinger dropped to 5-2.

EliteXC officials announced after the bout that Carano would likely fight for an inaugural women's world championship in her next bout.
