LOS ANGELES -- Gina Carano is scheduled to meet with UFC President Dana White on Wednesday night to discuss a return to mixed martial arts for a bout with bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey. [url=http://www.custompackersjersey.com/custom-jared-veldheer-jersey-large-2072r.html]Jared Veldheer Jersey[/url] . The long-rumoured matchup between the biggest stars in womens MMA history appears increasingly possible after White confirmed Caranos interest in fighting Rousey, arguably the UFCs biggest current star. White dismissed any suggestion the fight would be a mismatch, saying he would be eager to pit the unbeaten Rousey against Carano, who hasnt fought since August 2009 while pursuing an acting career. "(If Carano) is going to come back, (its) because she wants this," White said Wednesday at a downtown Los Angeles hotel. "And if she says yes and she wants to do a deal, its because she wants to fight Ronda." Rousey said she would welcome the chance to fight Carano, the MMA pioneer whose television fights first exposed Rousey, a former U.S. Olympic medallist in judo, to the young sport. "Shes the reason why I fight at all," Rousey said. "I owe everything to her. I would bend over backwards to fight her. What, are we going to make her run through a gauntlet to fight me? I would show up at her house to fight her. ... Its a fight that Ive always wanted and I never really entertained as being a real possibility until lately." Carano, who turns 32 next week, has been increasingly vocal about her interest in returning to MMA, confirming it on "The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson" earlier this week. "Its something that Ive always loved to do, and its been such a genuine expression for me," Carano said. "I wouldnt say that unless I was really, actually thinking about making a comeback." White said a potential Rousey-Carano bout would be for the 135-pound title, not at a catch weight. Carano hasnt fought at 135 pounds since 2006 and repeatedly missed 140-pound limits later in her career, but White said Carano believes she could make the bantamweight limit. Carano made her pro MMA debut in 2006, and she gained widespread mainstream attention after two of her bouts for the EliteXC promotion aired on CBS in 2008. After seven straight victories, Carano lost her final fight to Cris "Cyborg" Justino in the defunct Strikeforce promotion before moving full-time into acting. Director Steven Soderbergh saw her CBS fights and hired her to star in "Haywire," a well-regarded 2011 spy thriller. She has since appeared in a series of action films, including the blockbuster "Fast & Furious 6" last year. Rousey defended her 135-pound belt in December and again in February before returning to her own nascent acting career, this time in the seventh installment of the "Fast & Furious" series. The fight would draw enormous attention to the UFC and womens MMA because of the fighters profiles outside the cage, likely becoming one of the biggest pay-per-view events in UFC history. Rousey believes Carano shouldnt have to fight another contender before this matchup, saying Caranos body of work justifies an immediate title shot. "I think it would be the best thing for womens MMA at the time," Rousey said. "It would be the highest-profile fight, and I dont think it would really make sense for her to come back and fight somebody else and take the risk of maybe losing and not being able to capitalize on a fight between me and her. I think it would make more sense to go straight to a title fight." [url=http://www.custompackersjersey.com/custom-sterling-sharpe-jersey-large-1172r.html]Sterling Sharpe Jersey[/url] . The above paragraph could be rewritten, verbatim, with Marcus Stromans name in place of Romeros. After both men had disastrous outings in Tuesdays 18-4 mauling at the hands of the Tigers, its clear that neither is the best option to begin the season in Toronto.

Coach Randy Carlyle didnt know the severity of Bozaks injury. Bozak left the bench and went down the tunnel early in the second period, returned to play a handful of shifts and then did play in the third.Did your Premier League team live up to expectations this weekend? Weve asked former Leicester and England U21 manager, and Sky Sports Now guest, Peter Taylor to grade each side based solely on their 90-minute performance on Saturday and Sunday.So how did your team fare? Did they get an A or an F, or somewhere in between? Read on to see how each top-flight side has been ranked... Premier League results Norwich 0-1 Man Utd Aston Villa 0-0 Newcastle Sunderland 3-2 Chelsea Leicester 3-1 Everton West Ham 1-4 Swansea Tottenham 1-2 Southampton Bournemouth 1-1 West Brom Man City 2-2 Arsenal Crystal Palace 2-1 Stoke Liverpool 2-0 Watford Leicester - A+Sometimes these types of celebrations can go wrong on the pitch, but credit to Leicester, they scored at important times and were very difficult to break down. It was the perfect start to the title festivities at the King Power. Wes Morgan and Claudio Ranieri lifted the trophy amid ecstatic scenes at the King Power stadium Swansea - A+Swansea didnt really turn up when they went to Leicester in their last away game and they got quite a bit of stick as a result. I think that may have helped the manager motivate the players because they were very impressive at Upton Park.Liverpool - AJurgen Klopp has had a fantastic influence, and Liverpool seem to be getting better as the season goes on. Everybody wants to play now, especially with a Europa League final on the horizon, and this was another good display. Southampton - A Graeme Souness and Thierry Henry were full of praise for Southampton and their unsung hero Steven Davis Ronald Koemans side have a lot to go for with Europa League qualification a real possibility, and it was a classic away performance. Both goals were very well worked and well taken.Arsenal - B+ Thierry Henry, Niall Quinn and Graeme Souness assess the performances of Olivier Giroud and Wilfried Bony Arsenal are still a fantastic counter-attacking team and a point at the Etihad is a good ressult for Arsene Wengers side. [url=http://www.custompackersjersey.com/custom-will-redmond-jersey-large-2482r.html]Will Redmond Jersey[/url]. Alexis Sanchezs goal in particular was a real highlight.Crystal Palace - B+It was a great fightback by Palace and they scored brilliant goals too. It was an exciting performance, with Yannick Bolasie causing problems and Dwight Gayle a threat up front. Sunderland - B+ Jermain Defoe scored the winner for Sunderland against Chelsea Sunderland are now a much more organised side, which is not a surprise with Sam Allardyce in charge, but they are also getting goals. Jermain Defoe is a constant threat, and I fancied this result because Chelsea were coming off a tough match against Spurs.Man Utd - B Juan Mata celebrates what proved the matchwinner for Manchester United at Norwich Man Utd have the quality to make the most of a single chance, and even though they were not brilliant on the day, they were good enough to get three points at Norwich. Bournemouth - BEddie Howe has done a brilliant job and theyre safe so they may be looking ahead to next season now. It was never likely to be an open game against a well-drilled West Brom, and Bournemouth did well to battle back. West Brom - B Salomon Rondon opened the scoring for West Brom but his side were pegged back by Bournemouth West Brom are never an easy team to play against and Tony Pulis would have wanted to do well on his return to Bournemouth. They got off to an ideal start, but he may be disappointed his side failed to finish the job.Aston Villa - BVilla owed it to their wonderful supporters to put in a performance after the season theyve had, and a clean sheet is an improvement. Ill give them a B because they limited the chances for Newcastle, who were desperate to win.Tottenham - B- Tottenham went ahead against Southampton but lost the match 2-1 Spurs may have been a little down after what happened at Chelsea last Monday, especially considering the loss of discipline, so their performance against Southampton didnt surprise me. Its been a fantastic campaign, though, and theyll look to bounce back at Newcastle.Man City - B-City were disappointing because I was expecting a bit more considering they knew Man Utd had put them under pressure. They needed three points with the race for the top four getting tight, but didnt deserve them on the day.Chelsea - B-Chelsea did some good things against Sunderland, but I feared for them heading into this game. They put a lot into Monday night against Tottenham and it may have caught up with them.Watford - C+ Roberto Firmino scored in the second half against Watford Anfield is usually a difficult place to pick up points, and Liverpool were on a high after making the Europa League final. Watfords season has tailed off after such a good start, and this was another example of their struggles in front of goal.Norwich - CIt just shows you have to defend well at all times. You cant switch off for a minute because youll get punished by the top sides. Sebastien Bassong made a poor mistake and good players only need one chance.Newcastle - C Newcastle could only manage a draw at already relegated Aston Villa Newcastle have improved under Rafael Benitez, but they had to win this game. It wasnt a good enough performance considering their relegation situation and it may end up costing them.West Ham - C- West Ham were heavily beaten at home to Swansea This result surprised me because West Ham still have a good opportunity to finish up the table in the Premier League. They gave poor goals away to Swansea and you cant afford to do that in the Premier League.Stoke - C-Stoke have had a disappointing end to the season and defeat to Palace was another poor result, especially after going in front.Everton - C- Everton boss Roberto Martinez watched his side lose at Leicester Roberto Martinez has given his young side a chance, but they need to start putting in performances to help the manager. Against Leicester, they were out of the game too early.What do you think? Do you agree with the ratings? If you are reading on www.skysports.com leave a comment below or tweet us @SkyFootball.
