Gina carano and randy couture dating
Carano needs a couple of fights to get her MMA wind back and as Legacy FC bantamweight champion Holly Holm, who is in shape and ready to go, was wise enough to not seek an immediate title shot upon her signing with the promotion, so too should Carano avoid immediate title glory.

That (fight) just doesn’t make a lot of sense to me.” Of course, the argument for having an immediate Rousey vs. If Carano comes back and loses her debut fight in the promotion or failed to win her next one or two matches post a loss, then the UFC would lose a massive pay-per-view (PPV) and that is a gamble the promotion is not likely to take.
Gina Carano is a highly sought after prize by the UFC and indeed, Promotion’s President Dana White has often remarked about how the brand is “close” to signing the 7 – 1 fighter and former Strikeforce and Elite XC star.
As such, Carano has accumulated half-a-decade’s worth of ring rust and it is hard for fans to see how that amount of inactivity is going to withstand the test that is Ronda Rousey.
Former UFC heavy and light-heavyweight champion Randy Couture is one of those that are of the opinion that Carano will be over her head in facing “Rowdy.” Couture has coached “Conviction” in past years and believes that she has the technical skills to hang with Rousey on the feet; however, as he told the MMA Hour this week (August 4, 2014), grappling with the champion is another question.

But first, he need to go to Thailand and become, well get a sex change. I swear to God I already have people from WME calling me with deals for her.
