Former UFC title challenger Cat Zingano wants a fight with former UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion Holly Holm.
Last Saturday, Holm ended a three-fight losing streak when she knocked out former title challenger Bethe Correia in the main event of a UFC Fight Night in Singapore.
In a recent interview with MMA Fighting, Zingano revealed she would like to compete with the former champion.
“I’m excited to see Holly do as well as she did against Bethe,” Zingano said. “I’m always a fan of watching (Correia) get humbled, in that case, it was instant. You have to give it to Holly, she’s amazing at implementing a gameplan.
“Recently, I was asked about fighting her and for it to be in contention of possibly fighting the winner of Cyborg (Justino) vs. (Megan) Anderson. My answer is hell yes. As soon as my body is ready to safely go back in there, the heads will be rolling once again. The results and trials of the treatments I’m focusing on are responding and that makes me happy to hear as an athlete, as well as a normal human. Longevity in health and sport are both my top priorities, as well as in the interest of the UFC, who is providing me huge support at this time.”
Zingano hasn’t fought in the UFC in almost a year. She is coming off a decision loss to Julianna Pena last July. Despite her recent loss, Zingano is still one of the best female fighters in the world. She has victories over some of the best fighters in the UFC including Raquel Pennington, Miesha Tate, and UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion Amanda Nunes.
