ina Carano was in no rush to sign a new contract.

Two months ago, the MMA star had two promotions interested in her talent: Strikeforce, who owned her EliteXC contract, and the UFC, whose owners Dana White and Lorenzo Fertitta were thinking about creating a division around her.

The UFC was the popular kids’ choice, like it was for every fighter who dreamed of doing big things. Strikeforce, though not on par with the UFC’s prestige, had a new deal with Showtime and CBS, where she had first cemented herself as the “face of women’s MMA,” at one point adding one million new viewers to the telecast she fought on.

I read this story earlier in the day. She seems to be doing the smart thing and taking her time to decide. Have to be careful the door doesn't slam shut though.
