Another possible injury for Cat Zingano
With her right knee nearing full recovery, Cat Zingano now might have a torn meniscus in her left knee
Cat Zingano’s doctor, Dr. Ronald S. Kvitne of the Kerlan-Jobe Orthopedic Clinic has stated that Cat’s right knee is healing well and is nearing full recovery. However, the undefeated fighter might be suffering from a torn meniscus in her left knee.
“Cat is now three months out from her right knee anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction. She’s three months out; her knee looks great. She’s got almost perfect motion, got great strength and excellent stability. She’s about three months from getting back in the ring and starting to spar.” Dr. Kvitne stated in a video Zingano posted on her Facebook page.
“The only problem is the left knee appears to have somewhere along the line gotten into trouble with a medial meniscus tear.” So we’ll confirm that today with an MRI. If she does may have a torn meniscus, she’ll need surgery fairly quickly so she can get back on track with the rehab.” He added.
Dr. Kvitne implied that Cat will undergo immediate surgery once they confirmed the torn meniscus to avoid any additional delays to her octagon return.
Cat Zingano is originally slated to coach The Ultimate Fighter season 18 opposite Ronda Rousey but pulled out of the show due to the injury. She has a perfect professional record of 9 wins that includes 8 stoppages. In her last fight, she defeated former Strikeforce woman’s bantamweight champion Miesha Tate via TKO in the third round.
