UFC President Dana White recently spoke on the controversy surrounding former MMA fighter Gina Carano. Star Wars franchise star Carano was recently fired by Lucasfilm and Disney following comments made on social media.

“Gina Carano is not currently employed by Lucasfilm and there are no plans for her to be in the future,” said Lucasfilm in a statement released a couple of days ago. “Nevertheless, her social media posts denigrating people based on their cultural and religious identities are abhorrent and unacceptable.”

Dana White on Gina Carano

“Leave Gina alone,” Dana White said during the pre-fight media scrum for UFC 258. “Listen, we make mistakes. We all make mistakes.”

Gina Carano revealed back in 2019 that she was in talks with the UFC to join the promotion. These were halted after text message conversations between Carano and White sent sour.

“Dana was out there talking about me and talking about my name and telling people that he was going to sign me and I don’t even have a team yet,” Carano began. “And I was like, that is not what we discussed. You were supposed to give me at least six months to find a team. Then he started trying to put on the pressure through the media. It was a bummer because I told him over a text message that it was not what we had talked about. I need time, and now I am going to walk into a gym and people know that’s what I’m doing and I needed to build trust and find people.”
