Cat Zingano on Miesha Tate
‘About a year and a half ago, I had been asked to do a jiu-jitsu match against her in ONE [Championship]” Cat Zingano revealed. “So I knew that she has been having the itch to be competing again.”
“I’m not so surprised to hear that she comes back and she had her babies, she looks great” Zingano continued. “She got herself back in shape and that always makes you question if ’˜should I go fight right now how would I do?’ And I’m sure that’s where she’s at.’
ESPN recently reported that Tate will be appearing to face Marion Reneau on July 17. The event does not currently have a title although it appears to be a Fight Night event.
