"I think my coaching ability is absolutely, you know, it's fantastic. I know how to motivate people, I hit mits, I roll, you know, I can bring people up when they're down and I have a lot of skills and technique, as do the coaches I'll bring. Everyone has a really, really fun camp to look forward to."
-- Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) women's bantamweight No. 1 contender Cat Zingano talked to Heidi Androl about her coaching skills on The Ultimate Fighter 17 Finale post-fight show on FUEL TV. With her third-round technical knockout victory over Miesha Tate on Saturday night (April 13, 2013), "Alpha" earned a coaching spot opposite UFC women's 135-pound champion Ronda Rousey on The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 18. Following the conclusion of the reality show --which airs Wednesday nights on the soon-to-be-launched FOX Sports 1 network-- Zingano will challenge for Rousey's championship belt. Before that, though, the 30-year-old is focused on training a group of up-and-coming male and female fighters on TUF and believes her skills as a leader are going to be "fantastic."
