USA TODAY Sports

Following her TKO victory over Miesha Tate at The Ultimate Fighter 17 Finale on Saturday night (April 13, 2013), Cat Zingano talked about her coaching skills going into her TUF 18 showdown with UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey.

"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."
