Cat Zingano, Julianna Pena Will Meet At UFC 200

0

To get to the UFC female bantamweight title, Julianna Pena must go through a former contender.

Pena will meet Cat Zingano this July as part of UFC 200 from Las Vegas. The card will also include Miesha Tate defending the 135-pound belt against Amanda Nunes.

Following her victory on The Ultimate Fighter, Pena (7-2) spent over a year on the sidelines recovering from a knee injury. She returned in 2015 with wins over Milana Dudieva and Jessica Eye.

Zingano (9-1) saw her unbeaten run come to a screeching halt at the hands of Ronda Rousey for the belt at UFC 184, suffering a quick submission loss. She was recently sidelined with an injury of her own.

Joining those two bouts will be Nate Diaz-Conor McGregor, Jose Aldo-Frankie Edgar for the interim featherweight title and Cain Velasquez-Travis Browne.
