Cat's Back, Faces Nunes at UFC 178

Cat Zingano returns this September...

Number one women's bantamweight contender Cat Zingano will make her long-awaited return to the Octagon on Saturday, September 27, as she faces Brazil's Amanda Nunes in a UFC 178 bout in Las Vegas.

Sidelined by injury since her April 2013 knockout of Miesha Tate, Zingano could secure a shot at the woman she was supposed to coach against on season 18 of The Ultimate Fighter, women's bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey, with a win over Nunes, who is unbeaten in two UFC bouts, with knockouts of Sheila Gaff and Germaine de Randamie.
