Dana White Says If Gina Carano Signs She Will Fight Rousey

UFC president Dana White is planning to sit down with MMA star Gina Carano this coming Monday to discuss signing a contract and set up her first fight against bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey for later this year.

White confirmed on Friday in Ireland that he has plans to get a deal done with Carano next week when he finally has a chance to meet with her in person. Heres what he had to say regarding the matter:

“Next week I have a meeting with her on Monday, Pretty confident (we’ll sign her). I’m more of a fan of MMA now than I’ve ever been,” Carano said. “I’m saying if the circumstance was right, I’d definitely consider it — if the circumstance were right. I think so, “December probably. She did a damn good job against Cyborg and Cyborg was a little jacked up on Mountain Dew in that fight,” White said. “She’s the one that started this whole women’s MMA craze and Ronda wants to fight her. Ronda wants this fight bad. Gina wants the fight bad, too. Is she going to be any less competitive than any of the other girls she’s fought? The last fight, look at Alexis Davis — Alexis Davis is awesome — 16 seconds. You think Carano’s going to be less competitive than that? Six seconds? The fight before that with (Sara) McMann was a minute — you think Gina’s going to be less competitive than a minute or 16 seconds?”
