Ronda Rousey vs. Gina Carano On July 4th In Las Vegas?

According to a March 1st post from the Women’s MMA Discussion Facebook group, UFC color commentator Joe Rogan said there is a huge announcement coming soon regarding Ronda Rousey’s next fight.

While Rogan wouldn’t specify exactly what is next for Rousey, but he says it’s going to be big news that will shake the landscape of women’s MMA.

“I will tell you this and this is a K-Rock exclusive. Within the next probably week or so, a huge announcement will come about women’s fighting and I’ll be back in and we’ll talk some more.”

Rogan went on to say that the announcement would be crazy and a huge shocker, so he made it seem as though the UFC has something wacky in store for the fans. He hinted that the casual fan knows who might be next for Rousey, but he wouldn’t say if her upcoming opponent is currently ranked in the top ten in the world at bantamweight.

One day after Rogan’s radio comments came out, Dave Meltzer reported on Observer Radio that the UFC might be looking into a fight between Rousey and former MMA star Gina Carano, for a card on July 4th weekend.

Meltzer said that he believes the big announcement Rogan was speaking about might not be a clash between Rousey and Cris “Cyborg” Santos, but one between the star judoka and the former face of women’s MMA. Santos needs to make 135 pounds a few times, so she might not have the chance to fight Rousey until the end of 2014.
