It’s been several months since Cat Zingano defeated Miesha Tate with a third round stoppage. Post-fight, Tate said referee Kim Winslow called the fight too early.
“There’s no way in hell I’d let Kim Winslow referee another fight of mine,” said Tate on SiriusXM Fight Club. “I think she’s horrible. I think some people who are not fighters and watch that fight and are like cringe ’cause they don’t have the fighter mentality and can never possibly understand it and that’s why they’re sitting in the stands.”
As Winslow waived the fight off, she informed Tate the decision was based off a bloody face and not protecting herself.
Zingano would become the UFC women’s bantamweight No. 1 contender and earned a coaching spot on The Ultimate Fighter. A late injury to Zingano allowed Tate to fill those roles.
It’s champion Ronda Rousey vs. Tate in the co-main event of UFC 168 from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, NV. That show closes the year on December 28.
