Dana White Is Open to Promoting Gina Carano vs. Cyborg Santos

In an important nugget buried in the latest episode of MMA Live, Dana White confirmed to Jon Anik that he would be interested in promoting Gina Carano vs. Cyborg Santos.  His answer represents a major change in UFC policy:

I wouldn't be opposed to it...and if I did do it, it would probably be in the WEC.

The other night in an interview for Wrestling Observer Radio, Gina Carano made it very clear that it is her dream to compete in a big fight in Las Vegas for the UFC.  Dana White has gone from completely opposing the entire concept of women's MMA to considering promoting this fight for the WEC.  The position is clearly changing in rapid fashion, and if fans keep pressing women can finally get their chance to shine in the UFC.
