Cat Zingano hoping to fight Rousey this summer


Undefeated UFC women's bantamweight contender Cat Zingano recently appeared on AXS TV's Inside MMA. In it she related that she starts training full time on Monday, and she is looking at a fight with UFC bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey this summer. 

"When the time comes, I'm going to be ready, absolutely," she said, as transcribed by B/R. "I feel strong, I feel like I'm gonna come out ready to fight. I know Ronda had said something about maybe fighting in the end of the summer and I think that sounds pretty good to me too."

The BJJ black belt also said a fight with Invicta FC featherweight champ Cris Justino, would be "fun."

An easy warm-up fight against Cyborg would be good. But then we wouldn't get to see Cyborg lose in the title fight.

I don't think there's ever a right place or time to ask someone about things like that. It's good they kept it strictly "fight talk". Afterall that's what she wants to be known for - her fighting, not her personal life. Plus it'd be way too early to bring that topic up.

It was very odd seeing her interviewed right after her husband died and not having a single question, or even just a comment about it. Seemed like they were intentionally avoiding something big... Wasn't he a MMA guy too, like one of her coaches? So even just concerning her training it's relevant.

Cat should fight McMann in a title eliminator. I really want to see a McMann vs Rousey rematch, but if Zingano proves she can stuff Sara's takedowns I'd be way more into Zingano vs Rousey.
