Report: Miesha Tate Fighting Cat Zingano at TUF 17 Finale
By FCF Staff
Less than two weeks before UFC women’s bantamweight champ Ronda Rousey will fight Liz Carmouche at UFC 157, the promotion has booked another women’s bout, as Miesha Tate will battle Cat Zingano on April 13th. According to multiple reports the fight will be part of the TUF 17 Finale, which will take place at The Joint at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas.
Tate (13-3) hasn’t competed since August, when she tapped out Julie Kedzie, after losing by armbar submission to the Strikeforce champion Rousey in March, 2012. The 26 year-old fighter is 4-1 in her last five bouts.
Zingano (7-0) is coming off a rear-naked-choke victory over Raquel Pennington while competing for Invicta FC in October. The 30 year-old fighter also holds wins over Carina Damm and Takayo Hashi.
The TUF 17 Finale will also feature a heavyweight bout between Travis Browne and Gabriel Gonzaga.
