White: Carano deal ‘close’, expects to know more soon

Saturday, August 23, 2014

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.”
