Here's an update:
Quote:
Gina Carano in the WEC?

White said he is thinking of inviting Gina Carano to fight in the WEC. Carrano had been fighting in the now defunct EliteXC. "Gina Carano is a star, I think she's talented. I think she's got all the tools, so what I'm willing to do is bring Gina into the WEC. We could do fights whenever there's a challenger for Gina. That's how I'll test the waters and see how it goes." In the past, White has dismissed talk of having women fight in his organization, saying there wasn't enough talent out there.
The proposed scenario would be a major modification to Zuffa's approach in promoting MMA. Not only would this be their first foray into female fighting, but the experiment would not involve a full division of fighters but only Carano fighting various challengers as they materialize. Zuffa has the ability to take female MMA to the next level if they effectively deploy the significant resources at their disposal.

Gina Carano's popularity may be just what the WEC needs to emerge from the shadow of the UFC, and her addition would make a possible WEC PPV effort more realistic. One wonders if the recent return of Randy Couture to the UFC fold figures into White's quickly evolving attitude toward Carano (and other women) fighting under the Zuffa banner, given Carano's close relationship with the Coutures?

The only hurdle could be Carano's contract situation with ProElite. If she and other fighters are freed from the grasp of the floundering promotion, Gina Carano may soon be headlining a WEC event.

Good to see Dana is still talking about this. "We could do fights whenever there's a challenger for Gina." Sounds like he wants to have Gina under contraction and then do selective fights when the opportunity arises so it seems like no full womens division right now. It's a start though- either way I wanna see the hottie back fighting soon and the Cyborg fight looks good.

There are a few challengers for Gina, so hopefully Dana will step up and get this moving in earnest soon. She is soo sexy in the above picture.

That would be a lot of pressure of her because basically if she lost, Dana would say "its not working" and Gina would be out of a contract. The only way they would ever build a division is if she continued to win and generated a lot of interest. Seems like a big risk to me but honestly I will be happy anytime I get to see her fight.

Every part of that post was true and I in no way mean especially the last part.

It's unfortunate that Gina Carano has fallen under Dana White's banner.

We know that there won't be any conflict regarding her likeness used in a video game, anyway.
