Cat Zingano won’t have her UFC 232 loss to Megan Anderson overturned after her appeal to the California State Athletic Commission (CSAC) proved unsuccessful.
The commission delivered a decisive 6-1 vote on Zingano’s (10-4 MMA, 3-4 UFC) appeal of her 61-second TKO loss to Anderson (9-3 MMA, 1-1 UFC) at December’s UFC 232 event in Inglewood, Calif., NSAC Executive Director Andy Foster verified to MMAjunkie following an initial report from MMAFighting.com.
The Dec. 29 women’s featherweight fight ended prematurely when a kick from Anderson grazed and cut the eyelid of Zingano. The reaction from former UFC title challenger Zingano was immediately worrisome, because she was unable to open her eye until leaving the octagon.
Although there was later proven to be no long-term damage, Zingano said the pain of the injury was worse than anything she’s experienced in life, including child birth.
Given the unusual nature of the finish, Zingano attempted to appeal the result with the CSAC. Unfortunately for her, only one voting member saw grounds to overturn the outcome, while the other six opted to uphold the initial ruling.
Zingano spoke to reporters at this past Saturday’s UFC on ESPN 1 event in Phoenix and expressed a desire to rematch Anderson with hopes of a controversy-free result.
