True to nomenclature, Cat Zigano has landed on her feet in the wake of the Strikeforce: Melendez vs. Healy debacle. The Colorado native will now head to the Invicta cage to be a part of the promotion’s third offering, where she will face off with Raquel Pennington.
Zigano (6-0) has been sterling in her MMA career, finishing all but one opponent hitherto. “Alpha” was slated to face Amanda Nunes at the aforementioned Strikeforce event which fell by the wayside. Zigano is coming off of a vicious knockout slam on Takayo Hashi this passed May.
Pennington (4-1) is on a two-fight win-streak. After defeating Sarah Moras at Invicta FC 2, the Kong Do product went on to submit Raquel Pa’aluhi with a first-round guillotine earlier this month.
Invicta FC 3 takes at Memorial Hall in Kansas City, Kansas on Saturday, October 6.
