Cat Zingano's Eye Is Super Messed Up After Her Bizarre Loss At UFC 232

A few fights before Amanda Nunes annihilated Cris Cyborg, towering Australian striker Megan Anderson won her first fight in the UFC, with a first-minute TKO of Cat Zingano that was far stranger than Nunes’s knockout. As Zingano was circling away from Anderson’s probing punches, Anderson threw a head kick. She missed Zingano’s head, but managed to jam her big toe straight into Zingano’s open left eye.
Andrerson’s strike was deemed legal, as the California State Athletic Commission only prohibits intentional eye gouging and splaying one’s fingers towards one’s opponents eyes. Zingano could not fight on, and Anderson was declared the winner. For her part, Anderson said after the fight that she considered her win legit, but that she’d happily fight Zingano again if the UFC wanted to make the rematch.

Zingano told ESPN today that she is weighing an appeal of the TKO loss, which was bizarre enough that it might be taken seriously even if Anderson’s strike was technically within the rules. She also revealed that her eye is totally fucked up:

I have a damaged iris, damaged retina, hemorrhage in the back of my eye, increased globe pressure and of course the laceration. They want me back at the doctor every three to four days to make sure there’s no detachment on the retina. Right now, they have to keep it dilated and on steroids for the next two weeks to keep the pressure down.
Good lord, if these two do meet again, whichever commission certifies the fight should institute a “no toes in the eye” rule.

I agree. It's crazy UFC fighters don't get insurance through the company.

This still isn't as embarrassing as the Ronda loss.

Jesus I remember seeing it and thinking oh no this isn't good. Like the announcers said - she's a tough bitch so if she is tapping due to strikes then something is really wrong

It's really too bad because I was really looking forward to feverishly whacking it to this fight.

Anderson looks hot as fuck as usual, and Cat looked thick as molasses at 145.

I hope she recovers quickly

Cat was acting like an idiot. That corny stare down, bobbing those big tits n the warm up (didn't mind that part much), then turning her back to Megan.. She was more focused on how she looked.

Shitty turnout, the meow needs to get her head back on straight

I wonder if the official outside the cage checked the toenails as well as fingernails.

That SHOULD be a no brainer in MMA given that no footwear are allowed AND kicks ARE allowed.

If you ensure the fingernails are properly trimmed short, it only follows that the toe nails SHOULD be checked.

May not have made any difference, but that would seem to be the best course of action to seek a NC ruling.

This :pointup:

Now that you mention it, I can't remember seeing any fighter inspector or whateveryoucallem ever check toenails.

I remember Maldonado had his toenails trimmed during a walk-out and Rogan was spazzing out about how they also needed filed.
