UFC fighter Cat Zingano calls out Sasha Banks, fails

Yesterday afternoon, highly ranked UFC bantamweight Cat Zingano decided to follow in Dana White and Conor McGregor’s footsteps. The 33 year old jiu-jitsu purple belt plucked a Sasha Banks’ Tweet promoting her match at this Sunday’s Hell in a Cell pay-per-view (PPV) out of the air and tried to fire up the “mixed martial arts = real; pro wrestling = fake” argument.

Not a bad move from a business perspective. Cat’s on a two-fight losing streak (but does have a TKO win over current champ Amanda Nunes on her resume) and turning a quick Tweet into a bunch of free publicity from angry pro wrestlers and their fans is worth a shot.

Credit to Sasha and the pro graps world, though. They’re learning to stop taking the bait.
