Ronda Rousey and Liz Carmouche will make history as the first women to step into the Octagon on Feb. 23. A little less than two months later, Miesha Tate and Cat Zingano will follow suit at “The Ultimate Fighter 17” finale.

On Monday, the UFC officially announced Tate-Zingano as the second female bout in promotion history. The “TUF 17” finale takes place on April 13 at The Joint at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas. A heavyweight showdown between Travis Browne and Gabriel Gonzaga has also been confirmed for the card.

A former Strikeforce bantamweight titlist, Tate relinquished her belt to Rousey last March, submitting to an armbar 4:27 into the opening stanza. “Takedown” remains the only fighter to last longer than 54 seconds against the reigning champion. The Team Alpha Male member returned to action in August, tapping Julie Kedzie with an armbar of her own at Strikeforce “Rousey vs. Kaufman.”

Zingano is unbeaten as a professional, finishing all but one of her seven victims via knockout or submission. The Broomfield, Colo., native was last seen at Invicta FC 3, where she choked out Raquel Pennington in the second frame.
