Despite one budding women’s division in the UFC and a second on the way, three of the most-talked-about female fighters in the sport don’t fight in the octagon. That could soon change.
On Wednesday’s new edition of “UFC Tonight,” UFC President Dana White said Gina Carano (7-1 MMA, 0-0 UFC) and Holly Holm (7-0 MMA, 0-0 UFC) are both current targets and that each of them will likely appear in the UFC very soon.
“Holly Holm and Gina Carano are all a matter of getting a deal done,” White said.
UFC officials have flirted with the idea of Carano returning from a five-year absence and a Hollywood hiatus to get an immediate shot at UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey (9-0 MMA, 3-0 UFC), assuming she gets by the durable and crafty Alexis Davis (16-5 MMA, 3-0 UFC) at UFC 175.
