Miesha Tate vs. Cat Zingano full fight results TUF 17 Finale, Round 3

The second ever women's fight to take place inside the Octagon under the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) banner pitted the popular Miesha Tate against the unheralded and largely unknown, but still incredibly dangerous, Cat Zingano at tonight's (Sat., April 13, 2013) The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 17 Finale in Las Vegas, Nevada. The winner was promised a coaching slot on TUF 18 opposite division champion Ronda Rousey.

After two rounds it was a relatively even encounter. Tate did well in the first and parts of the second while Zingano had her moments in the first and came on strong in the second.

The third round opened with Cat earning a quick takedown to score points. She stayed busy on top to score even more while avoiding a stand up from referee Kim Winslow. Tate could do nothing but try to survive until she could stand up, but even then she ate a big knee and went back to the mat.

Zingano kept the pressure on and after Tate got back to her feet once more, she landed a series of knees, punches, and elbows that busted "Takedown" open and prompted Winslow to step in to stop the beating.

Wow.
