UFC bantamweight contender Cat Zingano, who was in line to face Ronda Rousey before being sidelined with a torn ACL, has suffered another loss. While details are understandably sketchy at this point, it appears her husband – Mauricio Zingano – has passed away.
As per her Facebook page:
Mike Chiappetta of FOX Sports confirmed that Mauricio had passed, and tweeted as much.
