Gina Carano and Kimbo Slice both appear twice on the list of Top Watched MMA Fights according to this MMA infographic (see below).

If UFC President, Dana White and Strikeforce CEO, Scott Coker need proof that fans will pay to see women fighters, they need look no further. When Gina Carano fights, over 5 million people tune in to watch.

With so much conversation and speculation about what will happen to women's MMA now that Strikeforce and Zuffa have merged, the question everyone is wondering about is:

How will Dana White and Scott Coker exploit the potential for attracting viewers by promoting female fighters?

Kelly Kobold vs Gina Carano

Gina Carano fans are anticipating her return to MMA. According to a recent update on FighterGirls.com:

"Coker stated that he would be announcing Carano’s opponent for the June 18th comeback fight in Dallas in the next few weeks, and they had someone in mind to replace Dandois."

Cindy Dandois will not face Gina because she has just received the happy news that she is pregnant!

Numbers tell the tale. If I had been guessing, I would have come up with a different set of fights and, obviously, I would be very wrong. I can't wait to hear who Gina Carano will fight next. We need a match-up that bumps Arlovski and Nelson off the list.
