But there's nothing on that front...
Dana White recently spoke about speculation that Gina Carano would come out of retirement to be Ronda Rousey's next opponent. Check out the highlights:
On whether a Rousey vs. Carano fight would ever happen: "Guys, I have no idea. I have literally avoided every conversation about this since Joe Rogan went on the radio show and speculation was Gina Carano...[Rogan] blew my whole week with that interview...there's nothing done as far as her next opponent."
On misinterpretation of Rogan's comments: "Joe doesn't just go out and start making s–t up, but he never said Gina Carano was coming to the UFC. He never said that."
On whether Cat Zingano will be next: "Cat Zingano has gone kind of radio silent on me. She's been through a lot of stuff, so I don't know where she's at or what she's thinking. So no big announcements yet."
On Carano's UFC status: "When you go on a hiatus, whether you're injured or semi-retired, you're still under contract. If you come back, you're still under contract with us. So she is under contract with us, but I have no plans right now."
On whether she would be allowed to fight in the uFC: "If she wanted to fight in the UFC, of course. If Gina Carano wanted to fight in the UFC, we would definitely do it."
