People held their breath at UFC 157, wondering if Ronda Rousey vs. Liz Carmouche would sell as the first WMMA bout in UFC history, let alone as the main event. Judging by early pay-per-view numbers and overall reaction, the fight could be deemed a success.
Cat Zingano wants to keep that positive flow going by putting together another stellar fight when she steps into the Octagon with Miesha Tate.
“It’s so important because they had an excellent performance and did a really good job,” said Zingano to MMA Junkie. “Now it’s time to continue to show to fans, maybe the ones who weren’t totally won over by the first show that we have a lot to bring.”
To the table, Tate enters as a former Strikeforce champion and Zingano unbeaten in her seven fights.
They make up the main card of The Ultimate Fighter 17 Finale. It airs later today, April 13, from the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, NV.
