This kinda thing can happen when you don't fight for more than a year:
Fighters be like.... I was 175 in January & 145 today. Reality vs expectation. There is a much bigger fight than what you see go on in that cage. And If I can do it, anyone of y'all can. #teamalphacat #ufc200 #bulkingJ/K #strongAF #regretnothing #alphacatzingano #sorrynotsorry #notashamed #thatbasstho #cake
UFC women's bantamweight contender Cat Zingano will hit the scale in roughly eight days.
"Alpha" is tasked with fighting The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 20 champ Julianna Pena at the upcoming UFC 200 pay-per-view (PPV) event, which takes place inside T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, on Sat., July 9, 2016.
Zingano (9-1) hasn't been seen since her first-round submission loss to Ronda Rousey at UFC 184, which took place back in February of 2015. Prior to her "Rowdy" defeat, "Alpha" was unbeaten in nine trips to the cage and holds a technical knockout win over current champ Miesha Tate.
Can she make another run at the 135-pound title? To see who else is fighting at UFC 200 click here.
