After Joe Rogan talked about an upcoming announcement about the UFC Women’s division that would impact Ronda Rousey there has been widespread speculation as to what he was talking about. Could it be Cris Cyborg? How about Gina Carano? There was a lot of talk over the past week of Gina Carano possibly coming back to the UFC to fight Ronda Rousey, which would be huge.
Dana White was asked about Gina Carano this week and it turns out they wouldn’t need to sign her, she already has a contract with the UFC through her old Strikeforce contract. Don’t get your hopes up, though, as Dana White has only spoken to her once in his life and it wasn’t recently. [source]
“Gina is under contract,” said UFC president Dana White following the UFC Fight Night 37 post-fight press conference on London on Saturday. “She’s got four fights left on her Strikeforce contract.”
“Never once have I talked to Gina Carano. I don’t really know her that well. I met her at a fight one time. She’s sweet. She’s beautiful. I like her. That’s it,” said White. “Never once did I say Gina was coming back. That’s some rumor that got started.”
