Gina Carano wants Ronda Rousey when she returns to the UFC. It might not happen immediately as she will likely need some tune-up fights but according to the rumours circulating throughout MMA circles, some of which seem to be courtesy of Ronda Rousey herself, she wants to fight the champ.
Dana White, the face of the UFC recently was interviewed and mentioned that he believed that the negotiations are almost finished and he expects to have them completed by September 2014.
The "Fast & Furious 6" star is drawing much interest from her fans and mixed martial arts fanatics for her reported interest in returning to the Octagon ring and some fans are looking at her current film schedule and speculating that she is already preparing for a return to fighting.
She was deemed to be very impressive by fans of the "Fast & Furious" franchise and yet other than one film, "In the Blood" in which she played a starring role and an appearance on the television series "Almost Human" she has not been part of any television or movie projects. She has been announced as part of the "Untitled Adi Shankar Project" but that project is not even in the stages of pre-production and is scheduled for 2015.
Mixed martial arts observers predict that any fight with Gina Carano, a woman who brings leading lady looks and world class mixed martial arts ability will be a rating bonanza which could change the optics of MMA completely. Could this be the reasoning behind Ronda Rousey's consistent refrain that Gina Carano wants to fight her?
Gina Carano already has heightened the interest in the women's mixed martial arts competition and many suspect that a seasoned promoter such as Dana White is going to build the anticipation for a fight between her and Ronda Rousey for a holiday weekend and make it a pay per view television even of epic proportions.
Gina Carano, actress star and potential television ratings queen looks ready to rejoin the MMA family and become one of Dana White's most popular people.
