White: I will sign Carano next week
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.”
