Next up for the women in the UFC: Miesha Tate vs. Cat Zingano.

Tate, the former Strikeforce women's bantamweight champion, will fight Zingano at TUF 17's "Ultimate Finale" on April 13 in Las Vegas.

This is the second announced women's MMA fight for the UFC, the first being champion Ronda Rousey against Liz Carmouche at UFC 157 on Feb. 23.

Tate (13-3) is coming off an impressive comeback win by submission over Julie Kedzie on the undercard of Rousey's win over Sarah Kaufman at a Strikeforce event last August.

Zingano (7-0) last fought in October for Invicta FC, the all-female MMA promotion, where she submitted Raquel Pennington in the second round.
