“UFC Tonight” co-host Kenny Florian feels like there is one super women’s MMA match that can be made right now.
Gina Carano vs. Ronda Rousey.
Reports of the two females squaring off have been circulating for quite some time now, and UFC president Dana White even threw some coal on the fire when he stated the promotion still holds the MMA contract of Carano’s dating back to her Strikeforce career.
Both are featured in several major-motion pictures, but Carano left the fighting world and has situated herself in Hollywood full time over the past few years.
Meanwhile, Rousey has propelled herself to the No. 1 spot and a position of power within the UFC.
“Both women are capitalizing on the success (of the other),” Florian said. “Rousey-Carano is the biggest women’s MMA fight you could make….period.”
Carano, 31 years old, has not fought since 2009 when she was finished by Cris Cyborg in Strikeforce. Prior to that, she had won each of her first seven professional bouts, including wins over Rosi Sexton, Julie Kedzie and Kaitlin Young.
Rousey’s been perfect in her career, topping the likes of Liz Carmouche, Miesha Tate and Sarah Kaufman.
