Cat Zingano is back.
The top women's bantamweight announced through her official twitter account that she has officially been cleared to train.
Zingano has been on the sidelines since defeating Miesha Tate back at The Ultimate Fighter 17 Finale 13 months ago. After dealing with extensive ACL recovery as well as the death of her husband, Zingano is ready to return to the octagon.
Sarah Kaufman picked up her first official UFC victory last month with a unanimous decision victory over Leslie Smith at the TUF:Nations Finale. She had recently taken to twitter to call out fellow former champion Miesha Tate, but now appears to have set her sights on Zingano.
