Frankly, I am absolutely unmotivated by money. And I know that maybe people take that and don’t understand what that means, but I am just not. What I am interested in is people that have respect. Not only respect for me, but people who have respect for women in MMA … I have sat down with Dana and (Zuffa co-owner) Lorenzo (Fertitta) and they have expressed interest and want to do something, but I am a little weary because I know that Strikeforce is signing women and the “Cyborg” fight is over there … I think that I would probably pick Zuffa (over Strikeforce) because that’s the big show, you know? To be a part of that would be amazing, but you know, here comes Strikeforce and they’ve got this CBS and Showtime deal and they are working their way up into being good competition … They’ve built their company on some good roots and now they are ready to branch out on Showtime and CBS. But as of right now, the UFC is the big show, and for a female, it would be an amazing opportunity.

well have the UFC decided if they are going to do womens mma yet? I thought they were prolly going to try it out in WEC.

Gina should probably just sign with SF

She should choose UFC of course. If Zuffa want to sign her im sure they have some worthy opponents for Gina.

About Cyborg... Well f*ck Cyborg. Hell, she should fight the men in WEC :D

She has no business messing with Carano's gorgeous' face :P

I hope they add a womens division to the WEC. That's where Gina and Cyborg need to fight.
They need to be on tv right now for the exposure, WEC is the perfect fit.
