Ronda Rousey willing to fight Gina Carano in title match or at catchweight

gina_carano_6UFC women’s bantamweight champ Ronda Rousey took time out in Dallas this week to speak with reporters about a bevy of topics including when she’d like to return to the Octagon and a potential match-up with Gina Carano. Rousey was asked if she thought Carano deserved an immediate title shot since she hasn’t fought since 2009.

“I think that given everything that she’s done for the sport and the pioneer she is, I think she would deserve a title shot anytime,” Rousey responded.

Since Carano has never fought at 135 pounds, Rousey was also asked if she’d be willing to fight her at a catchweight. “There are exceptions I would make for Gina that I wouldn’t make for anyone else,” Rousey said.

We still don’t know who Rousey’s next opponent is. There were rumors of a big announcement coming, but nothing yet. What do you think, does Carano deserve an immediate title shot — if she could make the weight? Or do you think it’s acceptable that Rousey would fight her at a catchweight, but not Cris Cyborg? Let’s don’t forget Cyborg actually beat Gina and took her Strikeforce title.

    Yeah where is Cyborg, we know Cyborg will destroy Ronda as does she… That’s the fight people want… Nothing against Gina she is a BA BUT we want to see why Cyborg has been avoided…

    Ronda is nothing more than Dana White’s new token bitch. Cant wait until her and the Diaz brothers are gone from MMA.
