Cat Zingano was supposed to have coached opposite UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey during the eighteenth season of The Ultimate Fighter. Cat Zingano was supposed to get a shot at Ronda Rousey following the series’ conclusion. A torn anterior cruciate ligament in her knee derailed those plans.
Zingano has undergone several procedures and months of therapy, and now considers herself back on track for a return in early 2014. When she returns, Zingano has no intention of taking things slowly. She expects to jump right back into the deep end of the pool. She wants to fight Ronda Rousey upon her return.
