Ex-Playboy Model Of The Year Wins MMA Debut

Gina Carano took an awful lot of the questions in Las Vegas last night after LaTasha Marzolla, a former Playboy model, made her MMA debut in Tuff-N-Uff, an amateur free-for-all that the LAS VEGAS REVIEW-JOURNAL lovingly referred to as “far more rookie ball types than Triple-A prospects“.

That’s no problem, though, since Marzolla let her fists speak well enough in a single round. Her opponent, Christy Tada, didn’t answer the call for the second round after a confident showing marred only by initial hesitation, according to the LAS VEGAS SUN.

Marzolla’s last bout of any kind, a loss in Muay Thai kickboxing three years ago, didn’t sour her on a fighting career. Marzolla returned to fighting after giving birth to her daughter. Carano stood by her all the way:

I used to get so mad when people would tell her she’s so beautiful and why is she fighting. But she taught me that you got to push that all aside and still get in there and fight. It was obvious to me that she was able to get rid of all the distractions and just went in there and fought.

Marzolla earned the Playboy special editions model of the year crown in 2004. And here’s some SFW samples of her award-winning work:
