Zingano made her much anticipated UFC return after a layoff of two years at UFC 222 in March. She lost the bout via split decision leaving her on a three-fight losing streak. Zingano was undefeated before the losing streak. To sharpen her game even more, she has resorted to a coach of the woman who gave her the first setback of her MMA career, former UFC bantamweight champion and Hall of Famer Ronda Rousey.

Zingano has decided to team up with Justin Flores, the judo coach of Rousey. Rousey being a former Olympic Bronze medalist in Judo, her coach might add some assets to Zingano’s arsenal.

“I started doing judo and grappling stuff with Justin Flores, who turns out being Ronda’s coach,” Zingano told MMAjunkie. “I was like, ‘Oh, well that’s weird.’ So I ended up asking her, ‘Is it cool with you?’ She’s like, ‘Well, you have my blessing. Have fun.’ I feel like anything I could have addressed and tried to do, I did. I’m here for results.”

“I wanted to get that ‘first one back’ feeling out of the way,” Zingano said. “I’m super glad that I got a whole 15 minutes. Obviously I didn’t get my hand raised, but 15 minutes of remembering and rekindling. … I wanted to maintain with the weight. I wanted to maintain with the cardio and everything. It was very important to me to have it be as soon as possible so I could get a lot of work done at once and keep it going.”

Zingano will have to go through a surging Marion Reneau at UFC Boise this weekend.

“I know that she’s good, and she’s coming here with some steam on her. I’m coming here with some steam on me,” Zingano said. “I expect we’re going to put on a good fight. We’re both intense chicks; we’re both moms. That’s a whole other (expletive) thing in your back pocket. It’s exciting. It’s pressure, but it’s a good pressure.”
