UFC 157 results: Miesha Tate vs Cat Zingano winner to challenge Ronda Rousey

Jayne Kamin-Oncea-US PRESSWIRE

In the UFC 157 post-fight press conference, Dana White revealed who'd be up next to challenge for the women's BW title.

Saturday night at UFC 157, women's MMA made it's debut with the premier promotion in the sport. As the first round played out between Ronda Rousey and Liz Carmouche it seemed that the challenger would be the first to ever take the champ out. Her luck didn't hold out, however, and she was armbarred in the closing seconds of the opening round.

Now that Rousey has officially solidified herself as the Women's Bantamweight champion, she'll await her next contender. At the post-fight press conference, UFC president Dana White indicated that the next challenger would likely come from the co-main event of the Ultimate Fighter 17 finale where Miesha Tate will face Cat Zingano.

Tate last fought in the August Strikeforce event where she pulled off a third round armbar to defeat Julie Kedzie in a fight of the year contender. Zingano maintained her undefeated record at Invicta 3 with a second round RNC over Raquel Pennington. The two will meet on April 13 in The Joint at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, NV. The winner will have the biggest opportunity of their career.
