Found this image of Gina Carano while surfing the list of blogs I've got bookmarked and it got me thinking about the article I still hope to write one day on women in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. I think this image says a lot about how marketing plays a huge part in the cross over of MMA to the mass and especially with women in MMA. Obviously we won't be seeing any promo pictures of a naked George St. Pierre covering his goods while posing for a 'superman-punch' any time soon.
Does an image like this on the cover of ESPN speak to the community of women in MMA and martial arts as a whole?
Also, Gina Carano lost to Cristiane "Cyborg" Santos. I wish nothing but sucess for Gina but think there are some issues to be dealt with on the media end of things.
