Cat Zingano Releases Statement on Husband’s Death

UFC Women’s Bantamweight contender Cat Zingano recently received terrible news, when her long-time husband Mauricio Zingano was found dead in his house on Monday, possibly from a suicide. She recently released a statement to MMAWeekly.com, saying:

Late yesterday evening, I learned that my husband and soul mate of seven years, Mauricio Zingano, has passed away.

My life has changed irrevocably. I am shocked and deeply saddened. Thankfully, my family and friends are coming together to provide the support I need. I am grateful for them, as I know there are many difficult days ahead.

I also very much appreciate the outpour of support from the jiu-jitsu and mixed martial arts world. My husband was well known and respected in this close-knit community and I know he would appreciate everyone’s thoughts and prayers, as do I.

At this time, I respectfully ask everyone to give me privacy as I gather with relatives and friends. Again, I give thanks to all for the kind words and support.

Sincerely,
Cat Zingano

We wish Zingano and her family the best in dealing with this unfortunate tragedy.
