Miesha Tate vs Cat Zingano Fight Preview And Betting Prediction
Tonight the second ever woman’s match-up in the UFC will take place between former Strikeforce champion Miesha Tate and unbeaten Cat Zingano. BetDSI Sportsbook’s live lines display the untested Cigano as the favorite at -130 while Tate is at a even money odds.
These are some very interesting odds as Miesha Tate is the far more accomplished fighter having fought head above heels better competition on a much larger stage. This is not a knock on Zingano as she is solid as her 7-0 record would indicate. However it is fact that she has not fought anybody who is known outside of hardcore woman’s MMA fans, and her only fight for a company of any recognition outside of Colorado came in October 2012 at Invicta FC against a fighter who is 3-3.
Regardless Zingano has done great with the competition put in front of her having ended all but one of her seven bouts with three by way of knock out and three via submission. Zingano’s biggest victory came against Takayo Hashi who has 18 total fights with a loss to Kaufman in SF.
While getting into the fight game at relatively the same time as each other Miesha Tate has more than double the fights as Zingano with sixteen. Then comes the level at which she fought with eight fights in Strikeforce ,winning six of them, and being a former champion of the organization, I just do not see how these odds are even close.
After healing up from losing the title to Rhonda Rousey via nasty arm-bar, where she had her arm broken, Tate came back with a victory at Strikeforce in August of 2012 against Julie Kedzie who is a travled fighter with 27 bouts under her belt. Before her loss to Rousey Tate had racked up six straight victories in a row including a submission win over Marloes Coenen.
Winner of this match-up gets to take on Rousey for the UFC’s woman’s championship and I believe that person will be Miesha Tate. Don’t get me wrong, Cat Zingano appears to be a dangerous fighter, but with the odds the way they are to get Tate at such a price with far more experience against far better competition the price is too good to pass up.
