There’s apparently a little bit of rumbling in the women’s bantamweight division. Cat Zingano stated that Miesha Tate’s boyfriend Bryan Caraway had purposely elbowed her at the weigh-ins for their recent fight.
“Brian smiled back in my face then elbowed me in the head at weigh-ins,” said Zingano to Bloody Elbow. “I am a fighter all the same, but that was dirty and cheap to do to anyone, let alone a girl. They were both in on it, which makes it even more disturbing.”
If that account is true, Zingano got the last laugh by finishing Tate in the third round at The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 17 Finale. By virtue of winning, Zingano now gets the title shot against Ronda Rousey and has secured a coaching spot on TUF.
Tate fights former No. 1 contender Liz Carmouche at UFC on FOX 8. That’s July 27 from the KeyArena in Seattle, WA.
