Undefeated Cat Zingano to Return at UFC 178 to Take on Amanda Nunes

3rd Women’s Bantamweight Ranked Cat Zingano (8-0), fresh off her TKO of Miesha Tate at TUF 17 Finale, will return to the octagon on September 27th for UFC 178.

She will be matched up with Strikeforce and Invicta veteran and 8th ranked Amanda Nunes (9-3), who is undefeated in her UFC tenure at 2-0. In her last outing she TKO’d Germaine De Randamie at UFC Fight For The Troops 3.

This bout will likely determine the next in line for Rousey’s UFC Women’s Bantamweight Belt, but then again who willingly wants to step in the ring with the “Rowdy” one now?

Whoever does hopefully comes out to something other than a Lorde or a Katy Perry ballad. I’d settle for “Can’t Be Touched” by Roy Jones Jr. for the millionth time.

Highly passionate MMA Journalist, and I've followed the sport ever since my favorite fighter, Vitor Belfort won the heavyweight tournament at UFC 12. After that I've tried to go to every local MMA event around the Gulf Coast and surrounding areas and decided to make it a point to have a career in some aspect in the fighting sport other than fighting in general (didn't want to ruin my face). I'm currently enrolled at Southeastern Louisiana University working towards a degree in Communication. I cover MMA, Boxing and Football for The Daily Star newspaper in my hometown of Hammond, Louisiana, in addition to working as a promotional writer for a local Boxing promotion known as BoxnCar and I cover boxing for 8countnews.com however SciFighting.com is my home. My main goal is to bring more publicity to MMA in my area and to the sport as a whole as all of us involved with the sport are merely scratching the surface and laying the foundation of what mixed martial arts competition will be further down the road.
