Watch Cat Zingano’s Emotional Entrance At The TUF 17 Finale

If you weren’t sure just how much fighting in the UFC for the first time meant to Cat Zingano then watching her entrance to the Octagon at the TUF 17 Finale on Saturday night will tell the whole story.

Initially walking out with a broad smile on her face she then began to cry as the crowd cheered her entrance and the magnitude of the moment hit her.

That pre-fight emotional rollercoaster didn’t hamper her performance though, as she would go on to produce a spectacular comeback win against Miesha Tate to not only win her UFC debut, but also secure a coaching role opposite Ronda Rousey on TUF 18 with a title fight to follow.
