MISC INFO

Gina Carano began training Muay Thai at the age of 21 under Master Toddy.

She fought in the first ever sanctioned female MMA bout in Nevada in 2006. Her fight against Cristiane ‘Cyborg’ Justino was the first women’s MMA bout to headline a major televised card, and was the first women’s championship fight for the Strikeforce promotion. Gina became the first woman to earn $100 000 for a fight. In her Muay Thai career, she was the first American woman to win a title in Thailand.

Having appeared on many talkshows, documentaries, television shows, and also as an actress in feature length movies, Gina has become known as the face of women’s MMA.

AWAKENING RATING
Awakening Rating
745
UNDERSTANDING THE AWAKENING RATING

The Awakening rating is essentially letting you know how inspirational an athlete is. The idea is to highlight the athletes careers so their achievements are not forgotten. Unfortunately we can only calculate based on the information we have in our database. When we uncover, or are supplied with new information the score will be recalculated.

The rating system is very complex and allows for all the nuances within the multiple disciplines. Some disciplines don’t have grading systems, others don;t have a W-L-D record. These kinds of differences have been accounted for. The most essential thing is the overall contribution to the female martial arts scene.
