Zingano made her much anticipated return at UFC 222 against highly regarded prospect Ketlen Viera at UFC 222 in March 2018 after nearly a two-year hiatus. She lost the fight via split decision. On June 14, Zingano will enter inside the octagon with her back against the wall.
Cat Zingano (9-3 MMA, 2-3 UFC) made her UFC debut back in April 2013. In her first two fights with the organization itself she has victories over former and current UFC women’s bantamweight champions in Miesha Tate and Amanda Nunes respectively. She is the only fighter to give champion Amanda Nunes a setback in her UFC career by impressively finishing her in the third round.
Alongwith bigger names like Ronda Rousey, Zingano also has been a pioneer of Women’s MMA. In her UFC debut against Miesha Tate, she became the first woman to earn a ‘Fight of the Night’ bonus of $50,000 (alongwith Tate). She also became the first mother to compete in the UFC. Earlier this month, Zingano posted a picture on Instagram posing in a bikini for the Brazilian Fair Trade bikinis that contribute towards disadvantaged women and children.
Zingano, 35, would desperately like to get back on winning ways.
