Video: Cat Zingano Says It’s “Weird” For Her To See Miesha Tate As UFC Champion


During a recent Alliance MMA media day, UFC Women’s Bantamweight contender Cat Zingano addressed a number of current topics, including the fact that Miesha Tate is the current UFC Women’s 135-pound champion.

Zingano defeated Tate back at the TUF 17 Finale event back on April 13, 2013 and admitted that it’s “weird” for her to see Tate as the reigning champion of her division.

Cat Zingano (9-1) infamously challenged for the UFC Women’s Bantamweight title back at UFC 184 on February 28, 2015, losing to then-champion Ronda Rousey in just 14 seconds when she made the mistake of lunging at Rousey with a flying knee attempt as soon as the bell sounded, landing directly into an armbar for what is still to this day the fastest women’s title fight finish in UFC history, and the second fastest finish of any UFC title fight in history.

Zingano will look to bounce back from the aforementioned loss to Rousey as she steps back into the Octagon for the first time since the February 2015 loss at the upcoming landmark UFC 200 event. Zingano is scheduled to meet former TUF Champion Julianna Pena (7-2) in an undercard bout at the event, which takes place on Saturday, July 9, 2016 from the brand new T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
