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!
