UFC: Cat Zingano Suffers Another Devastating Injury

Cat Zingano UFC

Gary A. Vasquez-USA Today Sports

Cat Zingano is one of the best bantamweights in the UFC’s women division. Leading up to her epic bout with Miesha Tate, Zingano wasn’t an overly popular fighter, but this all changed on fight night. The winner of this bout was going to coach on TUF against current bantamweight champ, Ronda Rousey.

The Tate vs. Zingano bout ended up being a war. Tate was up two rounds going into the third, so Zingano would have to muster up something special in order to come out the victor, which is exactly what she did. She landed knee after knee on Tate, who was unable to recover. The win gave Zingano an opportunity to coach and fight Rousey at the end of TUF, but a training injury forced her off the show.

Months have past, and it looked like things were starting to look up for Zingano, but according to her physician, she has sustained another injury to her knee. This time it’s her left knee, and it appears there might be a meniscus tear. Zingano is going to get a follow up MRI on the knee, but things don’t look good. If the injury is significant, then she will have to wait that much longer to get inside the cage. This is a shame, because she is one of the best women fighters in the UFC right now.

Hopefully she can make a full recovery in order to get inside the cage again, as she is one of the most feared strikers in the bantamweight division.

Dana White Doesn’t Think Conor McGregor Can Beat Rafael dos Anjos

Things are getting interesting ahead of UFC 196. The headlining fight at that March 5 pay-per-view event will see UFC featherweight champion Conor McGregor move up to lightweight to face the champion of that division Rafael dos Anjos. If McGregor succeeds he will become the first UFC fighter to hold belts in two different divisions simultaneously. The oddsmakers have McGregor as the favorite ahead of the fight. UFC president Dana White doesn’t necessarily hold the same opinion.

Ronda Rousey’s Mom Predicted Holly Holm Would Knock Her Out

Dr. AnnMaria De Mars is the first woman ever to win a gold medal at the World Judo Championship doing so in 1984. She is also the mother of former UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey. Further she may be the most vocal critic of Rousey’s coach Edmond Tarverdyan. Appearing on Submission Radio De Mars once again spoke out on Tarverdyan commenting on Rousey’s loss to Holly Holm at UFC 193. “I predicted it in advance Ronda trained with an idiot and a fraud” said De Mars.

Ronda Rousey’s Coach Breaks Silence on KO Loss to Holly Holm

We haven’t heard much from Ronda Rousey or her camp about the loss Rousey suffered to Holly Holm in November. Sure Rousey recently hosted Saturday Night Live and briefly addressed her UFC 193 knockout loss in her monologue but as far as detailed comments on the fight there has been mostly silence. That changed earlier this week when Rousey’s trainer Edmond Tarverdyan spoke to ESPN. Tarverdyan took a lot of heat in the days following the fight. Most of that heat was generated when his fighter bloodied and breathing from her mouth sat down on her stool at the end of Round 1.

Dana White Responds to Jose Aldo’s Demand for Conor McGregor Rematch

On Thursday UFC president Dana White appearing on the “Opie and Jim Norton” radio show said “It’s one of those things; we made the fight the first time and he got hurt and had to pull out. Then we made it again and it ended in 13 seconds. It’s tough to make that fight again right away. Plus Conor wants to be a two-belt champion so he wants to fight dos Anjos.” While White didn’t totally rule out an Aldo versus McGregor rematch his comments make the fight seem unlikely. McGregor’s next fight will take place on March 5 when he moves up to lightweight to try and capture Rafael dos Anjos’ title.
