Gina Carano Could Soon Be In The WEC
President of the UFC, Dana White, is apparently changing his view on womens MMA. In the past White has down talked womens MMA and showed absolutely no interest in promoting womens fighting. Back in 2007 White said during an interview “I’m not a huge fan of women fighting. Period.”, leaving the door closed to many women fighters who would love a chance to fight in the most popular fight promotion in the world, The UFC.
Now, thankfully, White seems to be considering making an exception. In Toronto during the UFC 94 St. Pierre vs. Penn 2 Press Tour, White said he would be willing to “Test the Waters” with womens MMA
White said, “Gina Carano is a Star, and I think she’s talented. I think she has all the tools, so what I’m willing to do is bring Gina into the WEC. We could do fights whenever there’s a challenge for Gina. That’s how I’ll test the waters and she how it goes.”
With this remark from White, it is very possible that we, the MMA fans, will eventually get that chance to see Gina Carano vs. Chris “Cyborg” Santos. A fight that could be the biggest womens fight in history.
