Since Amanda Nunes quickly put away Ronda Rousey at UFC 207, the bantamweight champ’s made it clear she doesn’t think much of “Rowdy’s” abilities, and Cat Zingano doesn’t like it.
Leading up to the December 30th event, Nunes repeatedly said that she wasn’t overly worried about what Rousey brings to the cage. But, the comments were pretty common for pre-fight rhetoric. Since Nunes finished Rousey in just 48 seconds, however, the champ hasn’t backed off that stance. In fact, recently Nunes said she didn’t “understand” how anyone’s lost to Rousey…
Well, one of those women is Zigano, who was quickly submitted by Rousey in 2015. Zingano is also the same fighter, however, that stopped Nunes in 2014. Recently the following tweet was fired at the heavy handed fighter, by Zingano:

There you have it. It will be interesting to see if Zingano can work her way back into a title shot. The 34 year-old is coming off a decision loss to Julianna Pena, so she still has some work to do yet (as she alluded to). But, since she is the last woman to defeat Nunes, one would think her path to a title fight isn’t too, too long, provided the latter remains champ.
Pena, meanwhile, will fight fellow contender Valentin Shevchenko on January 28th.
