Cat Zingano’s title shot will have to wait.

The undefeated #1 contender will return to the UFC September 27 in Las Vegas to take on Amanda Nunes in a fight that could determine who is the next person to face champion Ronda Rousey.

Zingano (8-0) defeated Miesha Tate over a year ago, but sustained a knee injury that kept her out of action. Zingano also has wins over UFC fighter Raquel Pennington and InvictaFC flyweight champion Barb Honchak.

Nunes (9-3) is 2-0 in the UFC, both coming by way of TKO. She has a 14 second KO over Invicta featherweight contender Julia Budd and only went the distance once in her career.

The fight will most likely air on the Fox Sports 1 prelim as the featured bout September 27.

    1. It will be interesting to see Holm fight girls actually her size or larger. Her ground has yet to be tested. Wonder who they will have her face first? Gut says Moras but I want her to face Eye. More on this in the MRS column tomorrow.
