“Alpha” Cat Zingano is headed to Bellator!
News broke on Tuesday that the former UFC title challenger inked a multi-fight deal with Bellator.
Zingano (10-4) and the UFC parted ways earlier this year due to scheduling complications. Despite being 1-4 in her last 5, Zingano’s release came as a surprise to many.
After her release, Zingano announced that she was hosting season two of the critically acclaimed ESPN series Why We Fight, executively produced by Rousey.
Zingano joins Bec Rawlings and Cris Cyborg as the latest former UFC contenders to join the growing Bellator roster. She will be competing in the featherweight division.
Zingano’s resume boasts impressive wins over the likes of Barb Honchak, Raquel Pennington, Miesha Tate, Amanda Nunes and Marion Reneau.
An debut opponent and date has yet to be announced.
