Cat Zingano vs Amanda Nunes added to UFC 178 Sept. 27 in Las Vegas

So everyone has been asking me who will be the next challenger for Ronda Rousey's UFC Women's Bantamweight Championship. This morning we got the answer when Kevin Iole of Yahoo Sports reported that number one contender Cat Zingano will face Amanda Nunes. The winner is likely to face Ronda at the UFC's annual New Year's show in Las Vegas. This will be on UFC 178 Sept. 27 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. This was the show that was supposed to be in Toronto but I guess Nevada forked over plenty of cash to get the show. I expect this fight will be on the main part of the PPV. Of course the big question is what will Cat be like post knee surgery. Not to mention her husband's suicide. I know she wanted the title match she was promised. But I always thought it would be better for her to take another match first. Since Ronda broke her hand on Saturday, she finally decided to take a different match. Of course this isn't a gimme. Amanda Nunes is from Bahia, Brazil and she currently trains at MMA Masters in Miami. She has won both her fights in the UFC by TKO. I think this has the potential to be a barnburner. And whoever wins deserves a title shot.
