Ronda Rousey’s Manager: We Would Love A Fight With Gina Carano

Gina Carano could be considered the female fighter who first paved the way for the likes of Ronda Rousey and Liz Carmouche to invade the UFC.

Carano, with her movie-star looks, helped give women’s MMA a face to build around. She has since went into acting, starring in such movies as “Haywire,” and the upcoming film, “The Fast and Furious 6.”

However, UFC president Dana White stated over the weekend that he would welcome Carano back with open arms if she decided to return to MMA – and Darin Harvey, the manager for Rousey, seconds that.

“Gina has a very lucrative movie career and it doesn’t really make a lot of sense for Gina,” said Harvey on The MMA Hour. “But Gina is a fighter in her heart and I think Gina may want to prove that she can beat someone like Ronda who is considered the best.”

Carano hasn’t fought since a 2009 loss to Cris Cyborg. She has hinted at a possible return to the fighting world, but that could prove difficult if she keeps accepting and landing these movie roles.

However, as big of a money-making fight as Rousey-Cyborg would be, you would have to think Rousey-Carano could top it.
