Miesha Tate vs. Cat Zingano full fight video preview for TUF 17 Finale

Check out this video previewing the Miesha Tate vs. Cat Zingano fight set for tonight (Sat., April 13, 2013) at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada. It's a hugely important contest for the UFC women's division.

When Miesha Tate and Cat Zingano throw down inside the Octagon later on this evening (Sat., April 13, 2013) at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada, on the main card of The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 17 Finale, it will mark just the second time two females have competed against each other in the UFC.

It's also a hugely important fight.

That's because the winner will move on to the TUF house to coach the upcoming historic 18th season opposite Bantamweight Champion Ronda Rousey. Here's what each lady had to say about the match-up, starting with Tate:

"You know it is something I've been looking forward to for a really long time. It is pressure, it is nerves, but it's part of the game. You've got to take the good with the bad, the ups with the downs. It's all a matter of how you kind of stomach it, really. I think Cat and I are actually really similar in our styles. She has a wrestling background, she has good grappling, and she throws really hard, kind of crazy punches on her feet. So we're both a little wild, we're both a little fearless and hey, that makes for a great fight, in my opinion, so I'm really looking forward to it."

And Zingano:

"I don't really look at her as a threat, I look at her as another challenge. So it's just one more challenge in life that I get to go through until the next one. I'm really excited to go out there and just impose my will on her. I think that I can break her and I think that at the end of the day it's going to come down to who wants it more and I know I do."

We'll find out who wants it more tonight in "Sin City."
