Cat Zingano is all set to lock horns with Cris Cyborg in Bellator MMA this year. While she has her plates full for the time being, Zingano still has a desire to go back to the UFC and get another win over UFC Women’s Featherweight Champion Amanda Nunes.

Speaking to Sports Illustrated, Zingano reacted to the victory of Julianna Pena over Nunes and said that it was a great fight. The former UFC star, however, added that she is happy at Bellator.

“It bummed me out a bit because I still have this desire to be the one that also gets to go back to fight Amanda and beat her again. But it was a great fight. I love Bellator. I’m treated right, paid fairly, and we have a deep division at 145. It’s hard-hitting, slugging mamas. I still think about UFC because I feel like I have unfinished business there, but I am happy to be here and fight this deep division of badass women.” Zingano said.

She further went on to add that she will be returning to the cage in March although the opponent is not confirmed as of now.

“I have asked for Cris a bunch of times and she has asked for me a bunch of times. I know I have a confirmed date on March 11. I don’t have an opponent or a location, but we did agree upon that date. That’s what I am training for and excited for. I would like to know the details, but right now we’re talking.” she added.
