“Can you see me?” Cat Zingano (pictured) shouted at UFC president Dana White after posting an emotional TKO victory over Amanda Nunes on Saturday.
Yes, Cat, we all see you.
It has been a long 16 months for Zingano, who not only had to deal with a professional setback by undergoing knee surgery and losing out on coaching The Ultimate Fighter against Ronda Rousey, with a title fight to follow, but personal tragedy when her husband killed himself.
Zingano started out slow and was dominated in the opening round. However, Zingano powered through and controlled the rest of action from there.
With the victory, Zingano secured her spot as the division’s top contender. They are hoping to pit her against Rousey at UFC 182.
UFC 178 took place inside MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
