“Cat Zingano, why are you lying? I have not refused any doping test. I’m ready when you are. Behind the scenes you keep telling Bellator you need more time to prepare for me first you need a different opponent now you go on social media with lies and smear campaigns and apologies? Sad.”

Bellator President Scott Coker told reporters last year that Cyborg vs. Zingano was a fight he was considering booking for 2022. During an interview with James Lynch, Cyborg claimed that Zingano did not want put pen to paper in order to make the title fight official on March 11.

“I heard she wanted to do one more fight before our fight. I accepted the fight but they will decline. So I just have to wait, see who my next opponent will be.

Cyborg mentioned Leah McCourt as a potential opponent. She also said she was ready for rematches if needed.

Cyborg was last seen in action in November 2021. She defeated Sinead Kavanagh by first-round knockout to successfully retain her championship. It was his third successful title defense.

As for Zingano, she made short work of Olivia Parker in her second Bellator outing. She submitted Parker in the first round via armbar. Zingano has won two straight since being released by the UFC.
