Ronda Willing To Go Up In Weight For Chance At Facing Carano, Not Cyborg

“I would love that. I’ve always said that, I never would’ve found women’s MMA if I hadn’t seen her (Gina Carano) fight. To fight her would be a real honor and I think that’d be a milestone for the sport. But, I mean, you can’t fight for anyone but yourself. I wouldn’t want her to fight for any other reason than if she wants to fight. It’s a personal decision for everyone. (Carano deserves a title shot due to) everything that she’s done for the sport and the pioneer that she is.

There are exceptions that I would make for Gina that I wouldn’t make for anyone else,” said Rousey of fighting Carano at a catchweight. Carano fought most of her career at 145.

In a recent meeting with the Press in Dallas, Ronda Rousey didn’t rule out a potential move up in weight to face off with her WMMA idol and pioneer, Gina Carano.

If only she’d do it for Cyborg, right?
