Dana White Says UFC Is “Really Close” To Signing Gina Carano vs. Ronda Rousey

As we have been reporting over the last several weeks, UFC has been in discussions with former female MMA star turned Hollywood actress Gina Carano about coming out of retirement to fight in the UFC.

It was noted that if Carano were to sign with the UFC, that she would receive an immediate title shot against UFC’s Women’s Bantamweight Champion, “Rowdy” Ronda Rousey.

UFC President Dana White appeared on the Jim Rome Show today and discussed the Carano negotiations. After weeks of saying that UFC is “getting close” to signing the female MMA star, during his appearance on Rome, the phrase changed, as he noted that he is “really close” to signing her to face Rousey inside the Octagon.

We should have an update on the Gina Carano situation at the beginning of next week, as White had noted in the past that he should have an announcement one way or the other during the first week of September.
