White: I will sign Carano next week

by Chris Palmquist |
 

Earlier this week the UFC announced the signing of highly touted prospect Holly Holm who will likely fight once and, with a win, earn a title shot. Now with Holm under contract, UFC President Dana White has his sights set on the potential biggest draw of an opponent for champion Ronda Rousey, Gina Carano:

White told ESPN.com he and UFC CEO Lorenzo Fertitta will look to add another major piece to the roster in Carano next week, when the two are scheduled to meet with her in Los Angeles. 

"One down, one to go," White said. "I'm going to meet with Gina next week and get that f---ing thing done. Next week, man. 

"It's just a matter of me and Lorenzo going to jump on a plane to Los Angeles, get in a room with her and her lawyer and get this thing done."

Why are they bothering with Gina? She was never that good and she's 32 years old now and hasn't been training. Unless they throw her straight to a title shot, she'll never earn one. She'd get worked by Tate or McMann let alone Rousey.

Dear Gina, I love you and have no desire to see your gorgeous mouth broken open. I am officially offering to make a sweet, sweet love movie with you. You can have all of the PPV points.

I'd be thrilled to see Gina get paid, I'm sure she'll get PPV points. I'm even more excited to see Gina fight Holly after Ronda beats both of them. Love,Mom

But that one fight would do huge money on it's own and would help legitimize the winner's chances against Ronda. It would be a big money tune up fight they both need, it would be a good style matchup between boxing and Muy Thai, hell, I want to see it. If it is a brutal, highly competitive fight where they both look legit, you still have your two fights with Rousey.
