Zingano Returns Against Pena at UFC 200

With victories by knockout or submission in 15 of their combined 17 wins, Cat Zingano and Julianna Pena are two of the best finishers in the women's bantamweight division, so don't expect the judges to get involved when these top contenders meet at UFC 200 on July 9 in Las Vegas.

Two title fights have been added to the historic card, with Jose Aldo and Frankie Edgar battling for the interim featherweight title, and Miesha Tate defending her UFC women's bantamweight crown against Amanda Nunes.

Zingano, ranked number three in the world, and Pena, ranked fifth, would both like a shot at the winner of Tate-Nunes, but first they have to get past their July 9 bout, which is expected to produce fireworks. A former world title challenger, Zingano earned that shot at then-champion Ronda Rousey in 2015 with knockout wins over Tate and Nunes. But if a rematch is in the cards with either fighter, "Alpha" Cat must defeat former Ultimate Fighter winner Pena, who is undefeated in three Octagon starts where she stopped Jessica Rakoczy and Milana Dudieva and decisioned Jessica Eye.
