And in the second women’s fight in UFC history, bantamweight contenders Miesha Tate (13-3 MMA, 0-0 UFC) and Cat Zingano (7-0 MMA, 0-0 UFC) engaged in an intense staredown after stepping off the scale. Tate was 135.5; Zingano was 136. The winner earns a coaching spot on Season 18 of “The Ultimate Fighter” opposite women’s bantamweight champ Ronda Rousey with a title shot following.
