Cannot Avoid Gina Carano and Cristiane “Cyborg” Santos

Okay, I was gonna try to go for a bit without mentioning Gina Carano and Cristiane “Cyborg” Santos and their upcoming fight.
But right now, all eyes seem to be turned towards this.

Crave Online has an article about the match up, as does The Las Vegas Sun, The Examiner, ESPN and a host of others.
This is looking to be the defining moment (so far) in female mixed martial arts.
Finally the women get the coverage and recognition that the men get.

Could it all blow up in their faces?
Oh yes, easily.
A bad fight and all the hype and build up will go down the drain with a loud SWOOSH!
But a good fight, and the hype will be justified and we may just see a turning point in female MMA.
I would hate to be Carano or Santos right now, because even though their opponents are their top priority, you know the media pressure has got to be in the back of their minds.
