For the past several weeks, rumors have been floating around the MMA media that the UFC was pursuing Gina Carano for a return to the Octagon.

Carano openly stated that she would definitely be interested in a return, but UFC President Dana White refuted the claim that they were negotiating.

But tonight on a special edition of UFC Tonight, White joined the cast and officially announced that Carano had indeed signed to return to the UFC. And not only had she signed, but she would be immediately put into a title fight versus champion Ronda Rousey at UFC 175 as the co-main event.

UFC 175 is headlined by a middleweight title fight between Chris Weidman and Lyoto Machid and takes place in Las Vegas on July 5th.

“This is a huge moment for UFC and especially women’s MMA. We feel like this could be the most watched UFC fight ever,” said White.

Carano has been out of mixed martial arts since 2009, a loss to Cris Cyborg. Despite the layoff, she is being thrust directly into the title fight as the UFC likely did not want to risk devaluing the fight should Carano take and lose a warmup fight.

And if that wasn’t enough, White then announced that the two would also square off in the first ever, ‘bikinis only, jello MMA match.’ The UFC already received approval from the NSAC to hold this special rules match.

Keith Kizer, executive director of the Nevada Commission, spoke to the Underground about the fight: “We are very excited to help the UFC usher in this new breed of combat sports and look forward to a new exciting kind of MMA that fans of all ages and backgrounds can get behind.”

So there you have it. The UFC again made history and announced what is sure to be the most epic UFC bout of all-time.

LOL at Gina making 135. April Fools jokes have to be somewhat plausible.

Seriously I thought it was real at first, I was like oh shit prepare for the shitstorm but then thought wow 175 with Machida/Weidman, Ronda/Gina and Hendo/DC is gonna be an insane card with BJ/Edgar at the TUF finale the next day.

Slipped up with calling Kizer the NSAC director. He retired a few weeks ago. I totally believed the bikinis and jello part though.
