    Dana White: Cat Zingano will 'probably' need another win before getting UFC title shot

    [​IMG]



    While there is still no exact date for Cat Zingano's return to action following a devastating knee injury, the one thing that is certain is that "Alpha' will not be fighting for the women's bantamweight title in her first fight back.

    That's according to UFC President Dana White, who told members of the media during the UFC 173 media scrum that Cat will likely take another fight before re-earning her crack at the crown.

    "Cat Zingano is still No. 1 contender, but she will probably fight again before getting Rousey or Alexis Davis," said White (via Damon Martin).

    Miesha Tate -- the person Zingano defeated to earn her title shot -- eventually took her place on season 18 of The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) as well as in the title fight against Ronda Rousey.

    Tate went on to lose to "Rowdy" in the third round via, you guessed it, armbar at UFC 168 last December.

    Rousey will next defend her title against Alexis Davis (sorry Gina) on July 5, 2014 at UFC 175 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

    As for Zingano, White says she is considering returning to the gym after recuperating from knee surgery and dealing with the death of her husband earlier this year. Unfortunately for "Alpha," she will have to re-earn her title shot by beating another top contender.

    Sara McMann, maybe? Or is a "Cupcake" rematch more appealing?

    The good news for Zingano is that she still has her No. 1 ranking -- fair or not -- despite the "inactivity."


    P.S I had no idea that Zingano lost her husband in January due to apparent suicide

    She has been out for a long time, it makes sense from a business perspective to have her fight once more so that the fans remember her as a contender. The UFC should throw her a match up in which she is a moderate favorite since she is already the number one contender.

    She's probably wearing boots in that pic, but damn Ronda looks like she dwarfs Cat.

    Bet she'll look rather bigger in the cage anyway even if there isn't a big *height* difference.

    Haha I like the way you think.

    I haven't watched Doctor Who since he left. It's just not the same.
     
  13. No No No.

    Cat is not 're-earning' a title fight.

    It is just a warm-up fight from a long layoff, to knock the rust off. Give her Jessica Eye.

    I don't really care about Tate anymore as she's never gonna be a contender again

    Yeah me too . I watched him for 5 secs when he said " Geronimo " in the final episode of the 10th Doctor and I was like " Nope , not gonna watch. Dude looks like a 15 year old kid , and he looks like he's gay ( no offence to anyone ) " haha

    Ronda/Gina in Dec

    Cat vs Liz or Kaufman or Eye in the fall, if Cat wins she gets her title shot in 2015.

    UFC def wants to book Ronda/Gina for that Dec NYE show, would be a huge show in a year that needs big fights.

    She has to be marketable before she can fight for the belt

    I agree,

    After such a long layoff her chances will be even slimmer.
    No point in fighting that fight right off the bat IMO.

    If the UFC hype machine can sell a guy like Cummins as a real threat , then Zingano could go to a remote island for 10 years , with electricity or anything , and when she'd come back , she would still sell PPVs .

    Who am I kidding ? It's the Ronda show . Carmouche didn't sell shit . McMann didn't sell shit
    . Tate sold some PPVs though.

    It's just the way it is.
