Cat Zingano Wants To Fight Holly Holm Next


Cat Zingano hasn’t been seen since suffering a decision loss to Juliana Pena at UFC 200 last summer.

When the female bantamweight star does return to action, then she would like her opponent to be former UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion Holly Holm.

“Recently, I was asked about fighting her and for it to be in contention of possibly fighting the winner of Cyborg (Justino) vs. (Megan) Anderson. My answer is hell yes. As soon as my body is ready to safely go back in there, the heads will be rolling once again. The results and trials of the treatments I’m focusing on are responding and that makes me happy to hear as an athlete, as well as a normal human. Longevity in health and sport are both my top priorities, as well as in the interest of the UFC, who is providing me huge support at this time,” Zingano said to MMA Fighting.

Holm herself is coming off of a head kick knockout win over Bethe Correia in the main event of UFC Fight Night: Singapore.

Zingano was impressed by Holm’s victory and she always likes to see Correia get hers in the end.

“I'm excited to see Holly do as well as she did against Bethe,” Zingano said. “I'm always a fan of watching (Bethe) get humbled, in that case it was instant. You have to give it to Holly, she's amazing at implementing a gameplan.”

The former UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion doesn’t have a fight scheduled at the moment, but she only competed a little over a week ago.
