Cat Zingano challenges WWE diva to a fight

October 25, 2016 4:57 pm by Matt McNulty

Former title challenger Cat Zingano just called out someone for a fight on Twitter, but she’s not a UFC fighter.

In fact, the woman Zingano called out doesn’t even train mixed martial arts. Zingano tweeted at WWE superstar Sasha Banks on Tuesday, to the confusion and delight of many.

See how the exchange between Cat and Sasha went for yourself!

Zingano has been fairly inactive over the past few years, fighting only once a year since 2010. However, “Alpha” Cat does hold a TKO victory over current woman’s bantamweight champion Amanda Nunes, who she defeated two years ago at UFC 178.

Zingano fell short against Ronda Rousey in her shot at UFC gold, suffering a quick submission loss last year. She most recently competed at UFC 200, where she was defeated by Julianna Pena by unanimous decision.

Zingano called out the WWE Diva out of the blue on Tuesday, saying:

“I’d bleed for it, give me the winner if you’re down for some realness.”

“Alpha Cat” was responding to Sasha Banks, a professional wrestler and WWE Diva. Banks had tweeted:

“A lot people want the crown, but they’re not willing to bleed for it. See you Sunday!”

A few professional wrestlers have made their way into the octagon. Brock Lesnar became the UFC heavyweight champion, while CM Punk lost in his MMA debut at UFC 202.
