Former MMA Fighter Gina Carano will be featured in stunning poses in the January 2012 issue of GQ Magazine.

In the GQ interview, Carano opens up about her upcoming movie, Steven Soderbergh's Haywire, and talks about her transition from a fighter to an actress. The film is set for release in January.

I am not a violent person. I actually don't like to hurt people. [But] I like fighting, because it's honest, Carano told GQ Magazine. The guys I date usually want to test my strength and wrestle around. By the end of the day, they're drenched in sweat.

Carano was formerly ranked at number 3 for the 145-pound female fighter in the Unified Women's MMA Rankings.

She started her career in the mixed martial arts sport with the Muay Thai fighting style. After winning a number of fights, she fought a critical fight in February 2007 against Julie Kedzie, which was the first televised female fight on Showtime. Carano defeated Kedzie in the fight in a unanimous decision.

After an undefeated start in her career, Carano joined the Strikeforce Women's Middleweight Championship. She then lost a fight against fighter Cristiane Santos in the first round. Though she stayed out of the ring for much of 2009 and 2010, she returned in February 2011.
