Report: Dana White Claims Gina Carano “Hardest Human Being We’ve Ever Dealt With”
By FCF Staff
Recently it’s been revealed that Gina Carano is set to appear in two more films before the year is out, and now Dana White has made comments, which could indicate the star isn’t heading to the UFC for a while.
In the past, White has said that negotiating with Carano has been “complicated”, but the UFC President has remained optimistic that a deal will get done. In a follow up report with FOX Sports.com, however, White claimed the following:
“The hardest human being we’ve ever dealt with and I didn’t see it coming,” White said about negotiating with Carano and her camp. “I don’t know, we’ll see how these things play out. Just incredibly difficult. We’ve dealt with (Brock) Lesnar, Tito (Ortiz), Chuck (Liddell) was f–king king of the world, Ronda Rousey, we’ve pretty much done deals with everyone on Earth and she is the hardest f–king athlete we have ever dealt with.”
White went on to blast Carano’s representatives, by arguing “she allows herself to be handled by these Hollywood f–king idiots.” He also revealed that at one juncture, UFC CEO Lorenzo Fertitta took over the negotiations, after White removed himself from them.
Not long ago, White stated that Carano could be granted an immediate title shot with bantamweight champ Ronda Rousey, if and when she signs with the promotion.
The 32 year-old Carano hasn’t fought since 2009.
