she hasn't been in the OG and hasn't been in women's mma news. she seems to have come off the radar without losing. kim couture gets more love than tara.

She signed a laughable deal with the AFL that everybody and their mother knew they could never fulfill (something like 500K per fight) spent a ton of time in limbo waiting on event that never came, back to fighting in bingo halls.

jersey shore threads are flooding the internet. being Eye-talian and all, a stint on the show would do wonders for her career. look what a little marriage to randy couture did for kim. it's sad but prolly true.

It was 500K, but I don't that that was per fight- something like that amount per yr for a certain amount of fights. no offense, but I can't imagine her getting paid more than most UFC fighters.

bingo halls? is she fighting for ECW? :)

The demise of Bodog, the clusterfuck with the AFL, and her drop to 125 have pretty much killed her career in terms of mainstream recognition. 

She really needs to move back up to 135 and take whatever deal Strikeforce is willing to give her.  It may not pay as much in the short-run, but in the long-run she will be much better off fighting on Showtime and CBS instead of on untelevised 'Extreme Challenge' and 'Locked in the Cage' cards.

Yep.

While Tara is toiling in obscurity on local/regional shows, much less accomplished fighters are getting recognized as the elite of womens MMA simply by being on television. 

There is more online discussion and hype around Kerry Vera's career than there is around Tara's career, simply because Kerry smashed a can (with a familiar last name) on live TV.  Kerry is a great prospect and has a bright future in the sport, but there is no way she should be getting better media coverage and sponsorship opportunities than Tara LaRosa.

Tara needs to sign with Strikeforce ASAP.  It is a travesty that the top pound-for-pound fighter in womens MMA is not fighting on live broadcasts.

Screw MTV, put that shit on PPV.  I'd pay $20 to see her make that jackass tap.

Tara was supposed to be on the Locked In The Cage 2 card tonight, but they postponed her fight until their next event. Wilson Reis was also supposed to fight tonight, but I believe that they delayed his fight until a future card as well.

Tara should be fighting in the 125 Bellator tourney this spring. Last I heard it was just her and Rosi signed up, but supposed to be a 4 woman tourney.

Jweinberg - she was recently recorded urinating while standing up, and of course contraversy was created. I don't see the problem, all men urinate standing up.

 VTFD for being worthless.

Her and Miesha Tate don't like each other so that would make a good fight
