Ronda Rousey May Clash With Cat Zingano in January 2015

Cat Zingano has finally come back to UFC with a bang. The female fighter has been away for about 17 months. The break came after Zingano suffered some serious injuries on her knee. According to Bleacherreport, Zingano had to skip a match that had been fixed between her and Rousey towards the end of last year because she was still not in good shape.

As a mater of fact, Zingano just beat Amanda Nunes in September during the UFC 178. Though her fans expected her to make a slow comeback, she decided to make a swift return by totally knocking out her opponent in the third round.

Zingano has really tried her best to convince UFC officials that she is fit to face any fighter and sure enough, her efforts have bore fruit because UFC officials issued a press statement after her match last month. According to a statement issued by UFC leader, Dana White, they are looking to fix a match between Rousey and Zingano at the beginning of 2015. That will definitely be a hell of a fight.

Rousey was actually present during Zingano's fight with Nunes. Rousey has won many fights and in case she beats Zingano, nobody knows whom she might face next. So far majority of the best fighters are yet to be fixed in any match.

There are only two matches that have been booked. Leslie Smith is set to clash with Jessica Eye at the UFC 180 while that of Holly Holm against Raquel Pennington has been set for UFC 181.

If Zingano happens to beat Rousey she could set the pace for other champions who are yet to clash with her. It goes without saying that Rousey can not afford a loss to Zingano because that will somehow discontinue her consistent wins. On the other hand, Zingano has to work extra hard because Rousey has already defeated the five fighters that were before her.

Though Miesha Tate has been loosing in her matches in the previous years, 2014 looks bright for her because she has already secured two winnings in her matches with Liz Carmouche and Rin Nakai.

Zingano may give Sarah McMann a walk over and so she would rather be fixed with new comers. Besides that, UFC ought to be careful in fixing matches for Sarah because of late she has proved that she can not control her anger during her fights. It is advisable to fix her with hardened fighters because she is fond of going overboard.
