2 Ridiculous Items: A. Gina Carano meeting with UFC, B. Arsenio Hall apparently has a TV Show

gina_caranoHere’s something you probably didn’t see—Gina Carano appeared on the Arsenio Hall Show last night. I know you didn’t see it because let’s face it, no one watches that show. In fact, who even knew this guy was still around? Anyway, back to the topic at hand.

Carano claims to be meeting with Dana White next week to discuss a possible comeback to the cage. “I love it,” she said about fighting. “It’s something I can do that makes everything else disappear. I dream about it. I just didn’t know if I was ever going to get placed with the opportunity to make a comeback. So I’m either going to do it now or retire and say, I’m never going to do it. So now is the moment.”

I’ve talked about me feelings toward this before. Quite frankly, I think this talk is ridiculous. Carano is busy making movies and living fairly comfortably thanks to her new career. She hasn’t even fought in nearly 5 years—which is a lifetime in this ever evolving sport. Bringing her to the UFC would be a blatant publicity stunt even worse than Kimbo Slice.

Champ Ronda Rousey would destroy Carano. So would many (most? all?) of the other fighters on the roster. I said before—and I still believe it—I don’t think Carano would have won TUF, let alone the title. And I honestly don’t even think her name value is all that big.

So as ridiculous as this idea is, it appears the UFC is considering it. I seriously doubt Carano is going to do this though.

And Arsenio Hall…you’re welcome! By mentioning that he was still alive, I just gave him more exposure than any other media source in the last 20 years.

  2. […] Carano isn’t yet signed with the UFC, Dana White thinks it will happen. I’ve had my doubts about the signing—namely that I couldn’t fathom her wanting to leave her comfortable new career […]
