Dana White: 'I'm going to meet with Gina Carano next week and get that f---ing thing done'

MMAmania

Between Holly Holm, Invicta FC, and now Gina Carano, there has never been a better time to be a fan of women's MMA.

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) President Dana White has been teasing the return of former face of women's mixed martial arts (MMA), Gina Carano, for several months. And while talks "stalled" as recently as last week, it sounds like they've started again.

In a big way.

Not long after the promotion inked a new deal with undefeated former boxer Holly Holm (more on that here), White told ESPN that he was on his way to Los Angeles, Calif., next week -- along with peacemaker Lorenzo Fertitta -- to get signatures from "Conviction" and bring her back home.

His words:

"One down, one to go. I'm going to meet with Gina next week and get that fucking thing done. Next week, man. It's just a matter of me and Lorenzo going to jump on a plane to Los Angeles, get in a room with her and her lawyer and get this thing done."

Hopefully her "pain in the ass lawyer" doesn't get in the way.

Carano (7-1) hasn't seen the inside of a cage in over four years, bolting for Hollywood after a technical knockout loss to Strikeforce nemesis Cris Cyborg in late 2009. In addition, she often struggled to make the featherweight limit and has yet to attempt a drop to 135 pounds.

But that's just fine with UFC women's bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey, who is willing to move back to featherweight (after this gets taken care of) to make this "super fight" happen (sorry, Cyborg).

Unless, of course, someone else gets to "Rowdy" first.
