Dana White: “If Gina Carano Wants To Come Back, I Wouldn’t Say No”

Former Strikeforce fighter turned movie star Gina Carano hasn’t fought since her TKO loss to Cris “Cyborg” Santos in 2009, but UFC president Dana White would welcome the 30-year-old back if she wanted to fight again.

“Gina’s a movie star,” White said. “Gina’s out making movies. I actually like that she made it and she went on and is doing movies, I like that, I like to see that happen. If Gina came back and said she wanted to fight again, we’d take her back. I’m not going to pursue her. She’s got her thing and I’m happy for her.”

Since her eight-fight pro career, which saw her challenge for the Strikeforce 145-pound title, Carano has appeared in numerous reality shows and movies, but the word on the street is that she may be interested in a comeback.

“She hasn’t told me, but I heard that she said that she would be interested in coming back, but if she wants to come back I wouldn’t say no,” White continued. “She’s been out for a while, so I don’t know if she would want an immediate title shot.”

While she likely wouldn’t be thrown in the cage with UFC bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey straight away if she did return, there is a possibility that the fight may happen at a later stage if Carano could make the weight, which would be a high rating event for the UFC.

Carano has only competed once in her career at 135 pounds. It was her professional debut in 2006. She’s struggled to make weight in higher weight classes, so it all may be a moot point until the UFC expands its women’s divisions higher than bantamweight.

Could she even make 135? Wasn't she having trouble making 145?

Hard to say. But I'd love to see her back.

Of course he wouldn't. They love playing the sex angle with the females. And people love Gina.

Gina could make 135 with a proper diet she isn't Cyborg ripped but why? Anyone really think Gina wouldn't get beat by the women on the UFC roster today? The UFC just wants another marquee name to help them build the women they have now.
