The list of female title challengers got shorter this evening following UFC Tonight on FOX Sports 1.
Since Ronda’s quick win over Sarah McMann last month, rumors have tied her to everyone from Holly Holm to Gina Carano.
UFC on FOX correspondent, Ariel Helwani, cleared the air during tonight’s broadcast. Here’s what he said:
“I just spoke to Dana about this. He told me, boldly, ‘We are not in negotiations with Gina Carano.’ He also told me they’re not talking to Cyborg. And then the big news over the weekend was he was going to have a meeting with Holly Holm’s manager… I asked him how that meeting went and he said, ‘Not good at all, we’re not interested anymore.’ He didn’t like her manager very much. One of those old boxing type of managers. They did not get on the same page there, and he says, right now, there doesn’t appear to be any shot of Holly Holm fighting in the UFC anytime soon.
