Cat Zingano Openly Discusses Fighting While On Anti-Depressants

UFC women’s bantamweight Cat Zingano has put on a storied career within the sport of mixed martial arts. Now the fighter has come forward to reveal the time she competed inside the octagon while on anti-depressant medication.

Mixed martial arts is a demanding sport. Fighters are required to maintain peak physical and mental condition in order to compete.

MMA can be grueling on those dedicated to improving at the sport, perhaps even tormentingly painful inside the cage. For those wishing to compete at the highest level of the professional sport, the stakes are even higher.

Consequently, fighters that compete on the roster of the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) often find themselves dealing with incredible amounts of pressure. Speaking to longtime UFC commentator Joe Rogan on the JRE MMA Show podcast, Cat Zingano revealed that she was on anti-depressants due to a chemical imbalance for her match up against Julianna Pena at UFC 200.

Check out Zingano’s thoughts on the experience within the video provided above.
