“If Gina is smart she will sign with Bellator. She can fight at 145lbs, she won’t have to cut to 135lbs, it is a more normal weight for her. She had a lot of problems making 145lbs and I have fought at 135lbs and I know how bad that made me feel, so for her… I think she can show her talent better at 145lbs and I really want to fight her.”
“I think if she wants to kill her career she should take that 135lbs match with Ronda Rousey right away. I think for her it would be more interesting to go to Bellator and fight at 145lbs and win a few fights, then see where she is up to.”
Make no mistake, Scott Coker will not let Gina Carano return to fighting without at least trying to acquire the star he helped build at Strikeforce.
Now, in a recent interview with Bloodyelbow.com, his first signed female Bellator fighter, Marloes Coenen calls out the former starlet with promises of better opportunity and an easier weight cut.
