Cat Zingano has been hyping up her UFC return for quite some time.

While Zingano has remained silent regarding who she would be fighting, she promised fans that it would be an exciting fight that took place sometime around her birthday on July 1st, leading many to expect the fight to take place at UFC 200.

Thursday afternoon Zingano broke the news on Twitter that she would be fighting Juliana Pena at UFC 200.

Zingano hasn’t fought since her UFC 184 submission loss to Ronda Rousey over a year ago, but has spent the last year resting injuries and working on her striking skills in Thailand.
