WMMA pioneer Gina Carano may have signed with Bellator according to several rumors. Dana White said several weeks ago that he was very close to reaching a deal with Carano which would lead to a fight with Ronda Rousey.
Bellator middleweight Brian Rogers Tweeted Bellator had an announcement to make tomorrow:
Friends, Fans & haters :Tomorrow there will be a major fight announcement via @BellatorMMA & various media outlets. You will be entertained

To which Hector Castro of Fear The Fighter Tweeted:
Hmm.. Rumor is that Gina signed with Bellator.. Apparently so did Marloes Coenen

The rumor may have merit given Carano’s past under the Strikeforce banner, where Scott Coker was the President. Given that Coker is now the President of Bellator this could have led to the signing of Carano.
Stay tuned tomorrow for Bellator’s announcement.
