White: Carano deal 'close', expects to know more soon


Despite rumors that Gina Carano has been negotiating with Bellator, UFC President Dana White recently told the media a deal was close and he would know more soon:

“It’s complicated, but I think it’s close,” White told MMAjunkie.

White, who talked briefly with a handful of reporters following Saturday’s UFC Fight Night 48 event in Macau seemed hopeful he will soon come to terms with the onetime Strikeforce star in hopes of bringing her in for a fight with UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey (10-0 MMA, 4-0 UFC).

“I had a plan, but now I don’t know,” White said. “We have to see how this plays out. As I said before, I should know in September – the first week of September.”

Hes also a day away from : signing fedor, making gsp/silva & making silva/jones.Whats the logic behind these statements? It doesn't hype the fight at all, just mows down his own credibility.

Ronda/UFC wants Carano cause she's a big name that will sell PPV's, they'll hype the heck out of this fight, Gina won't take it unless the money is huge

Dana saying he's going to sign Carano, Fedor or put on a super fight is like Cre making a fight prediction: cursed and doomed to failure.Coker FTW if Gina ever fights again (which I doubt)

Funny how everyone is saying they are talking to Gina Carano about coming back. Has Gina actually even said anything herself about coming back to MMA?

I would say that marquee Spike exposure is pretty close to what the UFC can offer her. Ronda isn't moving the needle THAT much for being what people say is the UFC's biggest star right now.
