Reports surfaced that there will be a 'major announcement' for Bellator today, and rumor mill has circulated with people claiming that the big news was about Gina Carano, along with Marloes Coenen, allegedly spurning the UFC by deciding to sign with their rivals instead. There may still be an announcement to be made today, but it may just not be about the former 'face of Women's MMA'.

Bloody Elbow has also learned from promotion officials that Carano hasn't been signed by Bellator as of Monday night. Additionally, MMA Fighting's Ariel Helwani has also tweeted that Scott Coker has denied these rumors as well:

The fighter turned Hollywood star hasn't competed in 5 years, but Dana White has been adamant about getting a deal with the 32-year-old, and has been linked to a possible UFC title shot against Ronda Rousey.
