Before Gina Carano puts her undefeated record up against Cristiane Santos on Saturday night in San Jose, Calif., the MMA beauty recently took some questions from The Life about her entertainment interests.

Gina Carano
Gina Carano's movie tastes run from chick flicks to gladiator movies.

The Life: What sort of music do you listen to for a workout or before a fight?

Carano: Have you ever heard of Rise Against? ... Rise Against, Breaking Benjamin, Three Days Grace. Anything you can build your soul through.

The Life: So you prefer something high-energy?

Carano: Yeah, super high energy, intense types of music.

The Life: Has Rise Against worked with one of the MMA bodies?

Carano: I don't know. But you know what would be cool if there was a music video that they did with MMA. That would be something that would be fun."

The Life: What are your top three movies?

Carano: "Braveheart," "The Notebook" and I'm going to go with "Gladiator" right now.

The Life: Nice how you worked a chick flick between those epic action movies.

Carano: Oh, you've got to, you've got to. I'm still female.
