A "super" fight between UFC women's bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey and women's MMA pioneer Gina Carano has felt like an awkward inevitability for a long while now. "Awkward" because Carano hasn't fought since 2009, when she suffered a brutally lopsided knockout loss to Cris "Cyborg" Justino (at the time, Cris "Cyborg" Santos). "Inevitable" because the UFC has been so desperate for star power, pay-per-view buys and opponents for Rousey. Well, according to UFC President Dana White, who spoke t read news >>

Following her amazing sixteen second demolition of Alexis Davis at UFC 175, Joe Rogan said that the production truck told him to ask her if she would headline UFC 176. 176 lost its main event when Jose Aldo suffered an injury and the UFC has not promoted the event at all this weekend, seemingly suggesting that the event may be scrapped altogethe read news >>

If you don't ask, you never know, right? Help wanted: New "guy in UFCs production truck."

UFC 176 is less than a month away and with the removal of headliner Jose Aldo from the card due to injury, there's currently no main event in place.
