Cat Zingano’s title shot will have to wait.
The undefeated #1 contender will return to the UFC September 27 in Las Vegas to take on Amanda Nunes in a fight that could determine who is the next person to face champion Ronda Rousey.
Zingano (8-0) defeated Miesha Tate over a year ago, but sustained a knee injury that kept her out of action. Zingano also has wins over UFC fighter Raquel Pennington and InvictaFC flyweight champion Barb Honchak.
Nunes (9-3) is 2-0 in the UFC, both coming by way of TKO. She has a 14 second KO over Invicta featherweight contender Julia Budd and only went the distance once in her career.
The fight will most likely air on the Fox Sports 1 prelim as the featured bout September 27.
