Kim Winslow stands by her call to stop the Miesha Tate vs. Cat Zingano fight. Tate had complained she was able to continue, but she wasn’t showing it to Winslow whose main concern is the safety of the fighter.
“When you stop attempting to get out of the situation or just go back to what got you warned in the first place it’s your way of letting me know you have had enough and I am coming in to stop it,” said Winslow to US Combat Sports. “How much time I give you is always dependent on the amount of damage you are taking. Safety is the first priority and it’s my job to make sure you come back to fight another day if you choose to. ”
Tate said post-fight she was not pleased with the referee’s call. UFC president Dana White believes that Winslow was correct in ending the fight in the final round.
Zingano now becomes a coach on The Ultimate Fighter and meets champion Ronda Rousey. Both women are undefeated with Zingano at eight wins and Rousey with seven.
No date is known for that championship fight or Tate’s UFC return.
