Cat Zingano calls out Miesha Tate for title fight: “You’d want to avenge that “controversial” loss right, champ?”

By Jamie Penick, MMATorch Editor-in-Chief

With Miesha Tate capturing the UFC Women’s Bantamweight Championship, there are more fighters than just Ronda Rousey and Holly Holm angling to get a shot against her.

On top of the list is Cat Zingano, who defeated Tate in their respective UFC debuts, and she called out the new champ on Twitter after UFC 196.

Penick’s Analysis: Zingano hasn’t fought since getting armbarred by Ronda Rousey in 14 seconds last year. That’s a significant difference from Tate winning four straight to get another shot at the title. Before Zingano can be calling for a title fight, she’s got to get back in the cage, and she’s got to win a fight. A three year old win over Tate isn’t by itself deserving of that title shot, and though she’d make a valid challenger with another win or two, she’s simply got work left to do.

  1. She wasn’t yelling for a title shot at Ronda again! She wasn’t yelling for one from Holly either! As a matter of fact I have sat and watched a bunch of people on her IG wonder when she’d fight again but SUDDENLY she’s ready. I honestly lost respect for this chick after this. How are you going to call out the one fighter who had the belt that you beat? If you actually watched that fight, Miesha dominated Cat in that fight until she gassed out…like 3 years ago. It was the only reason Cat won it and barely. She isn’t even a good Muay Thai fighter. She should sit down.
