Cat Zingano ridicules Amanda Nunes following UFC 207 win, ‘Lioness’ responds in kind

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) women’s bantamweight champion Amanda Nunes successfully defended her title with an emphatic win over former 135-pound titleholder Ronda Rousey at the UFC 207 pay-per-view (PPV) event, which took place last Friday night (Dec. 30, 2016) in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Watch the replay here.

Following her 48-second destruction, former division No. 1 title contender, Cat Zingano, went to the champion’s Instagram page to sneak a peek at the bantamweight belt — only to be found guilty of trespassing.

Take a look:

“Lioness” responds in kind:

Zingano (9-2) — no stranger to watching past opponents capture the crown — holds a technical knockout win over Nunes from their 2014 fight at UFC 178. Unfortunately for “Alpha,” she went on to drop two straight, including her unanimous decision loss to Julianna Pena at UFC 200 back in July.

Any chance we get to see these two bantamweight rivals rematch in 2017?
