Cat Zingano has gone through the worst imaginable year, starting with the injuries to both of her knees (requiring PRP and stem cell treamtments) that kept her sidelined for over a year now, and spiraling into the tragic suicide of her husband Mauricio in January of this year. Throughout all of her trials, Zingano has stayed extremely loyal and upbeat to her fans, always thanking them and giving them small hints as to her current state, and possible return.
Zingano has been all over her twitter account especially in the last few weeks, releasing small blurbs about picking up and getting things back together:

But the most convincing hint she tweeted came on June 3rd, letting her fans know that everything in her power was in the works for a UFC return:

UFC president Dana White has always maintained that Cat would receive her title shot, and still believed that she was the number one contender, even if she had to take a fight in-between her shot at the Women’s Bantamweight champion.
We are all excited to finally see a happy, healthy, and motivated Cat Zingano return to the Octagon and no matter who her returning bout will pair her against, it will make an amazing fight!
