    Former title contender Cat Zingano released from the UFC

    She is saying it had something to do with a “project” she is working on that she had to prioritize, but this release is consistent with others who have been let go recently. Veteran fighters who are no longer considered title contenders are being axed to clear capital and make room for young up and comers.

    I for one am sad to see her go. She has had a rough personal journey but was as tough as they come in the cage. Her 14sec loss to Rousey after her ex husband’s suicide was one of the biggest gut punch moments in MMA for me.

    All the best to her in the future!

    Damn she was coming off a single loss not 3 or 4 but she is closing in on 40. She cleaned up well and had some nice boobies though. Never was the same after Honda took her soul and she went full-retard in her post-fight interview...

    Her soul was well gone before the Rousey flying knee attempt and armbar counter.

    I couldn't stand Ronda but that sequence is just outstanding.

    At one point in that exchange Ronda has her in a body lock while balanced on her head, dragging her into side control. Amazing reversal. Amazing finish.

    Not really a thread for this gif I suppose but there you go.

    Gotta wonder what is next for Tecia?
    She has lost 4 in a row after looking like a future champ.

    I keep telling you cunts. The polarization of the roster continues. They're slowly getting rid of mid-tier veterans so they can pay local cab drivers and waitresses 10/10 to fill up cards.

    It's actually a good idea, from Thier point of view.

    Fill the roster with cheap, not elite talent. Have Thier existing top tier beat the shit out of them. Gives them massive win streaks and then face them off against each other once every while. Plus one or two of the bums they hire will naturally turn into a star themselves

    It's literally the boxing model. Makes sense they'd follow it eventually.
