Report: UFC’s Dana White Believes Deal With Gina Carano is “Close”
By FCF Staff
Although Dana White recently admitted that the ongoing negotiations with Gina Carano are “complicated”, the UFC President believes the promotion is getting closer to signing the former Strikeforce star.
Following UFC Fight Night 48 in Macao, China, here is what White reportedly had to say about how talks with Carano are going (quote via MMA Fighting.com):
“Yeah it’s complicated, but I think we’re close,” said White. “I think we’re close.”
White was also asked if he’s still interested in booking Carano a title shot against bantamweight champ Ronda Rousey, and noted that they would have to wait and see how things “play out.”
The ZUFFA exec also added that he will know more about how things are progressing with Carano in early September.
Although the fighter turned actress hasn’t competed in pro MMA since 2009, Carano has expressed an interest in returning to fighting and signing with the UFC.
