Cat Zingano Statement

Official statement from UFC bantamweight Cat Zingano...
Late yesterday evening I learned that my husband and soul mate of seven years, Mauricio Zingano, has passed away.
 
My life has changed irrevocably. I am shocked and deeply saddened. Thankfully, my family and friends are coming together to provide the support I need. I am grateful for them, as I know there are many difficult days ahead.
 
I also very much appreciate the outpour of support from the jiu jitsu and mixed martial arts world. My husband was well known and respected in this close-knit community and I know he would appreciate everyone’s thoughts and prayers, as do I.
 
At this time, I respectfully ask everyone to give me privacy as I gather with relatives and friends. Again, I give thanks to all for the kind words and support.
 
Sincerely,
Cat Zingano
