Rousey’s Armbar ‘Absolutely’ No threat To Cat Zingano

Female powerhouse, Cat Zingano, earned the right to fight for the UFC title when she took out Miesha Tate this past April at the TUF 17 finale event.

A knee injury forced the rightful number-one-contender out of action and she’s been rehabing ever since.

Cat was recently on UFC Tonight to discuss a potential matchup with the UFC champ, Ronda Rousey, and the panel asked her point-blank if she’d be able to defend the infamous Rousey arm bar.

“Absolutely (I’ll defend it). I don’t spend any time training armbars. I think Ronda has her armbar in her back pocket and relies on it. I’m not training for anyone I fight. I train for me.”

The two female fighters will likely face off sometime in 2014, but can Cat really stop what’s been plaguing the female division for years now?
