Cat vs Reneau should be a fight worth seeing. But if Cat loses, she should consider another career.

I agree Cat needs a win badly in this upcoming fight

Default Re: Cat Zingano and her come back fight

UFC Fight Night 133 is officially in the books and Cat Zingano defeated Marion Reneau by unanimous decision. Every judge had Cat winning all three rounds with one judge giving her a 10-8 for the third round.

The story of the fight was basically that Cat had more tools in her arsenal, namely her takedowns.

Reneau has historically been very good off of her back - she has a solid guard and is dangerous with triangle chokes - she even pulled guard a couple of times, but Cat's wrestling and BJJ defence was too good for her to threaten with any submissions off her back and broadly speaking, if you're on the bottom, you're losing.

Cat was very emotional after the fight. Probably out of relief. This was a bit of a monkey off her back after not winning a fight for almost 4 years.

Coming in as the clear betting favorite, the only thing Reneau really showed was an ability to take some damage. Zingano was getting no pre-fight respect....available odds were as high as +150 in some places.

She is 35, but I could potentially see Zingano fighting at this level for another 4-5 years.

It was a bit of a weird and kind of self-depreciating performance from Marion. She was having some of her best moments in the standup, and seemed to have the better hands when they engaged. I think she snapped Cat's head back a few times and maybe even rocked her a little at one point, but gave up the takedowns far too easily, even pulling guard two or three times, deliberately putting herself on the bottom. I understand that she believes in her jiu jitsu and ability to hit triangles from the bottom, but Cat is not sloppy when it comes to BJJ. You don't really want to be on the ground with Cat unless you're an absolute wizard and as good as Marion is, she's no Rousey, Dern or Suarez.

It was either really bad fight IQ or another hypothesis is that she didn't like Cat's body kicks. Those stabbing front kicks - digging the ball of the foot into the body - can be deceptively debilitating.

Great analysis! I'm glad to see Cat on the comeback trail but don't see how she gets her wish to avenge her losses against anyone but Viera. Ronda is gone and Juliana seems to be as well.

Julianna is supposedly looking to come back in the latter part of the year. She is not done fighting.

That is potentially a fight they could roll back considering Julianna is coming off a loss to Valentina and is unlikely to walk straight into a title shot.
