In just a handful of UFC fights, Cat Zingano managed to beat Miesha Tate, TKO Amanda Nunes (before she was champ) and fall prey to Ronda Rousey in 14 seconds.

But after a decision loss to Julianna Pena, injuries have kept Zingano on the sidelines since 2016, so her return at UFC 222 against Ketlen Viera was somewhat eagerly anticipated.

Too bad Viera had superior grappling skills.

Zingano was all about aggression and leg-kicks from the outset, and she did a decent job taking chunks of meat out of her opponent’s thighs.

Viera, on the other hand, turned things into a wrestling match, and after getting Zingano down over and over again, was able to chill out in top position for most of the fight. Zingano kept her from doing much damage, but all that time on top… that’s death on the scorecards.

Which is exactly the kind of death Zingano experienced. She turned up the heat in the final round, and managed some grappling control of her own, but the damage was done.

Results: Ketlen Viera def. Cat Zingano via Split Decision
