Dana White defends the idea of signing Gina Carano to an immediate title fight
Add Dana White to the list of people who are supportive of an immediate title shot for Gina Carano. The UFC President spoke with members of the media following the UFC on FOX 11 post-fight press conference, where he stated that he is "confident" that the promotion will sign the former Strikeforce featherweight champion. White also defended Ronda Rousey's suggestion that Carano be given an immediate title shot as he believes she is "legit." "I do think she does [deserve an immediate title shot]." White said. "She's legit, everybody knows she's legit. When I met with her, if some of these people said half the [expletive] to me that she said to me when we met, I'd love it. I love what she had to say and I'm excited. I hope I get a deal done with her."

Rani Yahya and Johnny Bedford get rematch at UFC Fight Night 44
Following a no-contest earlier this month, bantamweights Rani Yahya (19-8 MMA, 4-2 UFC) and Johnny Bedford (19-10-1 MMA, 2-1 UFC) will get another chance to fight. UFC officials today announced the rematch. The booking is announced two weeks after a clash of heads brought the first fight to an unceremonious end. UFC Fight Night 44 takes place June 28 at AT&T Center in San Antonio. The event’s main card is expected to air live on FOX Sports 1 following prelims on UFC Fight Pass. It’s not yet known on which portion of the card Yahya vs. Bedford will serve. Yahya and Bedford opened UFC Fight Night 39 and barely got going before colliding heads. Yahya dropped back to the canvas, stunned, as Bedford swarmed and landed several punches. The referee then ruled the fight a no-contest, which sent Bedford into a tirade as he claimed victory.
