UFC Boss Confirms That Gina Carano Is Currently Under UFC Contract - See more at: htt

Quote:
Earlier this week, Joe Rogan came out talking about big announcements for women’s MMA and Ronda Rousey. He just wouldn’t give any details.
Now during today’s media event in London, the Dana White talked about the rumors that Carano would be returning to action against Ronda Rousey:
“…I have literally avoided every conversation about this since Joe Rogan went on the radio show and speculation was Gina Carano. [Rogan] blew my whole week with that interview. There’s nothing done as far as [Ronda's] next opponent. Joe doesn’t just go out and start making shit up, but he never said Gina Carano was coming to the UFC. He never said that.”

On Carano’s contract status that the UFC bought when they acquired Strikeforce:
“When you go on a hiatus, whether you’re injured or semi-retired, you’re still under contract. If you come back, you’re still under contract with us. So she is under contract with us, but I have no plans right now. If she wanted to fight in the UFC, of course. If Gina Carano wanted to fight in the UFC, we would definitely do it.”

Gina Carano would absolutely get mauled by Ronda.

That is huge news but I still don't see her fighting at 135, unless it's a catch weight with Ronda or if Ronda moves up. But if she makes 135, i'll watch that fight for sure. She's HOT!

This may be an attempt to get a second womens division up and running. If they are smart they make it 155 because there are a lot of women at 140-155 that could easily fit in there but can't make the cut to 135.

DOn't you think a 145 pound class is more suitable than a 155 pound class for women?

They already have a second woman's division... 115lb.

Yes, defInately. Would be awesome to see Gina back fighting. Having Rousey, Holm, Cyborg and Carano all fighting in the UFC would be a major boon for MMA fans and Dana.

She was having a lot of trouble making 145 when she was an active fighter. No way she can make 135 right now.
