"Gina's got her thing," White said of Carano. "I'm happy for her. Good for her. She hasn't told me, but I heard that she said she'd be interested in coming back. I'm not going to push her. I think it would be pretty cool if she wanted to come back."
In recent interviews, Carano has expressed interest at a return to MMA fighting. She hasn't competed inside the cage in three years, but she never officially retired from the sport.
"There are certain things that I always dreamed of, like fighting in the UFC," Carano said. "That was a big one I don't know. There's just certain things that I feel like haven't been accomplished there. There's such great women coming up in the sport; seems like a wonderful time to be in women's MMA. So I'm not sure."
A fight between Carano and Rousey would easily be the biggest women's MMA fight of all-time.
"Gina's a movie star, man," White told reporters following Rousey's victory over Carmouche at UFC 157. "Gina's out making movies. I actually liked that she made it, and she went on and she's doing movies and things. I like that. I like to see that happening."
Of course, the other problem is that Carano might not be able to get down to 135 pounds. Carano fought in the EliteXC promotion at 140 pounds, and she had trouble cutting even that low.
No word yet on who Rousey will be fighting next in the UFC ranks.
