Most observers don't look at Gina Carano as a serious possible threat to UFC bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey. It isn't that the former Strikeforce star isn't skilled, but after five years away from competition, it seems unlikely that she'd be able to successfully jump right back in against the best today's women's MMA world has to offer.

linky pie

LOL she's trying to sell the farce now. No way in hell Gina does better than Tate or Carmouche unless Ronda carries her a couple rounds in what I would consider a fixed fight.

I guess we now know exactly what Chael Sonnen would look like with tits at 135. Dana has a new replacement boot licker to sell his unsellable shit. I guess she owes Dana big time for NOT signing Cyborg and ending her mystique in about 39 seconds.

Obviously false. I personally would pick Rousey over any female fighter, Cyborg included, but Cyborg would likely be Rousey's toughest test. Zingano and even Holm would be tougher fights for her, maybe even a couple others.

Carano used to be where Rousey is, essentially, movie deals and all. One of the best female fighters in the world. But she is an unproven commodity at this point in my eyes, five years out of the game.

I think Cyborg was under contract with the UFC when Strikeforce dissolved but she was unwilling to cut to 135 for a title shot. She asked (at the idiotic advice from Tito Ortiz) to be released and was. Supposedly she was offered the same deal as Ronda (according to Dana, So take that with a grain of salt). But yeah Carano would be far from her toughest fight. I'd still watch though.

This. I don't even think Gina could beat either of those 2 at this point either.

Now that is funny. Wonder if Dana got into her ear trying to hype the fight.

What you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in the playground is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no props, and may the mods have mercy on your soul.

I don't think it was her ear he got into.
