    Obviously everyone is pretty split on whether Rousey vs. Carmouche should be main eventing a PPV (or even on PPV at all).

    So, replace Liz Carmouche with Gina Carano (assuming she could make weight) for the Rousey's championship.

    How do you feel about this match-up as a main event? Is it worthy? Would you buy?

    Nah, WMMA skillsets have left Gina in the dust.

    Fuel card or FX card, hell yes.

    Gina Carano is done as an active competition in MMA.

    She has starred in the main role of a wide release movie, Haywire, and his going to co-star in the upcoming big budget 6th picture in the Fast and Furious series.

    It's also front page news that she has been dating the new Superman, Henry Cavil (sp?).

    Unless it was a 7 figure payday, which isn't going to happen, then she isn't coming back in the near future.

    I definitely thought Rousey-Tate was PPV worthy...If Carano was as relevant as she was back in the day....I think this one would be as well...But I love watching the females fight..They always bring it!

    Considering alot of the fighters who fought Carano were paid to take a dive, I wouldn't pay to see her fight.

    As ZackZed said, Rousey Carano fight could be the main even for a fuel or fx card, but not a PPV card.

    To be honest, only PPV worthy WMMA matchup at the moment would be Rousey vs Cyborg.
