The UFC held a press conference earlier today in Toronto to promote the upcoming welterweight title fight between Georges St. Pierre and B.J. Penn. As usual, Dana White was on hand to not only promote the event but to answer questions from the press. When asked about women’s MMA and Gina Carano today, White seems to have lightened up his stance according to a report at 660 News in Calgary.

“Gina Carano is a star, I think she’s talented. I think she’s got all the tools, so what I’m willing to do is bring Gina into the WEC. We could do fights whenever there’s a challenger for Gina. That’s how I’ll test the waters and see how it goes,” White told the press in attendance.

The only potential roadblock for Zuffa to sign Carano would be her current situation with ProElite. Currently the fighters who were under contract with the company when they closed their doors are caught in limbo while the company tries to auction off their contracts as well as all of the assets of the company.

However, the fact that White is open to promoting women’s MMA through WEC is a big step in the right direction. Not only would Carano be a huge boost for WEC’s marketability it would be a huge step in the right direction for high level women’s MMA to be taken seriously.
