Gina Carano to meet with Dana White about possible UFC future next week, or could retire for good

Gina Carano says that she will meet with Dana White next week and could return to MMA, saying she's "actually kind of considering it."

Gina Carano was on the Arsenio Hall Show last night discussing a number of topics, but her MMA career was the center of much of the discussion. Hall eventually asked if Carano would ever return to MMA and she said, "yeah, I'm actually kind of considering it."

Then, after being asked if she would be contractually involved with Dana White and the UFC, Carano gave a sheepish smile before dropping a bit of a bombshell, "Yeah, I'm actually sitting down with him next week."

She also explained some of her motivation to return and explained that this is a now or never situation,"It's something I can do that makes everything else disappear. I dream about it. I just didn't know if I was ever going to get placed with the opportunity to make a comeback. So I'm either going to do it now or retire and say, I'm never going to do it. So now is the moment."

This would obviously be a huge move in the UFC, a promotion that could use more marquee stars and would benefit greatly from a Carano return and a likely future bout with Ronda Rousey.

We'll have more details as they become available, likely after next week's meeting between Carano and the UFC.
