Fast & Furious 6 opens in theaters a couple days from now. We will soon find out if this is, indeed,the fastest and furious-est of them all. More importantly, all trailers, featurettes, tweets, facebook posts and grandma’s bingo-buzz about the movie points to an epic-as-shit ladyfight between real-life MMA fighter Gina Carano and actress-who-played-a-boxer-once Michelle Rodriguez. Now we want to know, who’s going to win?
The Case for Carano. She was trained from birth by monks, deep in the mountains of Shaolin. No, seriously though, she fought other people as her full time job until 2009. She’s an actual real mixed martial artist for whom acting was originally her moonlighting gig.Doesn’t seem to be much else we need to add, does there? We want to see some body-rubbing choke-holds and her sexy sexy ground game.
The Case for Rodriguez. She was in Girlfight? Sexy as she is and as tough as she looks, nothing about her says she’s going to physically, er, womanhandle Gina Carano. But that’s not counting real life grit. Make no mistake, Michelle Rodriguez is goddamn fierce — her 18 day stint in the slammer must have honed her hand-to-hand skills. If shivs are involved, Rodriguez wins hands-down. Again, more ground game, ladies.
