Dana White on Gina Carano: I wouldn't say no

The famous female MMA fighter and todays actress Gina Carano (7-1 MMA, 1-1 SF) has not fought since August 15, 2009 where she lost a fight, for the first time in her MMA career, to Cristiane “Cyborg” Santos (10-1(1) MMA, 4-(1) SF). Despite her long absence she is not yet forgotten by UFC President Dana White:

"Gina's a movie star. She's out making movies. I actually like that she made it and is doing good things. I like to see that happen. If Gina came back and said she wanted to fight again, we'd take her back, but I'm not going to pursue her."
"Gina's got her thing, and I'm happy for her. She hasn't told me, but I've heard that she said she'd be interested in coming back.”
"I'm not going to push her. But if she wants to come back, I wouldn't say no, either. It'd probably be a big fight. I don't know if she'd want an immediate title shot."

With Gina Carano in the UFC’s pocket that would definitely draw “some” additional attention and tons of bucks! You know guys I think 2013 will be the craziest year for MMA and you know what I won’t mind it.

I've seen everyone besides Gina herself talking about her fighting again. She seems to be doing pretty good with her acting career so why would she want to come back? Phone Post

I hope she doesn't come back to fighting. I am a fan and I hope she makes $ doing something other than getting hit in the face.

Dana wants to sell the SEx Appeal aspect of Womens MMA and GINA CARANO has 50 times more sex appeal than Rousey plain and simple. Rousey has the Olympic pedigree though that gives the sport more credibility.

Carano? Really. She's like the female version of Frank Shamrock. Throw him in with todays talent after a 4 year layoff and see how fast he gets trounced.
