The story of Cat Zingano’s martial arts journey is the stuff most Hollywood script writers can only dream about on their best day. Cat Zingano has lived the lives of many at the age of 34. Zingano raced out to 9-0 start to her MMA career, including a pair of TKO wins over the last two UFC women’s bantamweight queens, before an injury, personal tragedy, and a crushing defeat sent her back to the drawing board.
Blow out your knee while filming The Ultimate Fighter, loss your husband to suicide, get submitted by Ronda Rousey in less than 15 seconds, would send most athletes into a personal tailspin. The story of Cat Zingano is documented in a new DirecTV-AT&T Audience Network docuseries called the Religion of Sports.
The six part series examines the unique examples of sports’ cultural and often spiritual impact on its athletes. Zingano’s episode premieres on Tuesday November 29th and below is a video preview.
