Cat Zingano vs. Takayo Hashi went down this weekend just outside Denver, Co for the Outlaw MMA 125 lbs title. For those of you who don't know who Cat Zingano is, maybe you should go watch her choke a sucka out. Anaconda for the win! Cat came into this fight 6-0 in MMA competition, and coming off of beating of Carina Damm. C sat down with us not but a fortnight ago, entering a dangerous level of philosophical discourse- so you know who we were rooting for. The fact that she was battling a long time top 10, 13-3 grappling specialist wasn't going to make that easy. Hash was coming off two decision losses to Tara LaRosa and Sarah Kaufman, which is nothing to scoff at. Especially considering Hashi's size, and that fact that LaRosa and Kaufman both have a penchant for finishing their opponents.
This match intrigued me from the get go. Zingano's superior Muay Thai against Hashi's ability to force the clinch and positional superiority. I won't spoil what happens, but I will tell you this- Somebody seals the win with a very impressive finish. Video and commentary at Gals Guide to MMA.
