Ronda Rousey Unsure How Cat Zingano Will React To Spotlight

Since winning the Strikeforce female championship, Ronda Rousey has been cast in the spotlight. From magazine covers to television interviews to headlining a pay-per-view in the UFC, Rousey has become familiar her position.

Her next opponent, however, hasn’t been in the bright lights that the UFC provides, and Rousey is unsure how Cat Zingano will react to all that.

“If you’re always under the bright lights, your eyes don’t have to adjust when they come on,” said Rousey on Middle Easy TV. “I’m used to it and she’s going to have to adjust to the bright lights right away as I’m now used to them always being on.”

The two will be coaches on the next season of The Ultimate Fighter before facing off, likely in December of this year, for the UFC female bantamweight title.

Zingano made her Octagon debut by besting Miesha Tate, while Rousey successfully defended her title with a submission win over Liz Carmouche.

The former Olympian has a point, as the light cast on TUF is a different one – especially considering these two will be the first female coaches leading the first female fighters in the shows history.
