Caol Uno wants to return to the UFC

PDG: Out of all the great battles you have had with some of the biggest names in the sport, what have been your favorite and why? Caol Uno: All of my fights are memorable, and they all meant something to me. But if I had to pick a fight, it would be my second fight against BJ Penn (Draw at UFC 41). It was very memorable for me. PDG: You are thirty-eight years of age. Some consider this be an older age for fighters. Do you believe you are still at an age to make another run for a title? Caol Uno: I’m not going to say I can take the title, but my challenge is to get back into the UFC for the 3rd time, at this age.
If he wins this weekend that is three in a row including a win over Anthony Avila who was 11-1 when Uno beat him.

UFC Contender Cat Zingano Will Undergo Stem Cell Procedure for Left Knee
Top ranked UFC bantamweight challenger Cat Zingano has been out of action for several months due to an injury to her right knee. That injury is on the mend, but it has led to issues with her left knee, for which Zingano will have a procedure on Thursday. “I am about three and a half months out (from the original injury),” Zingano said on UFC Tonight. “I went to my doctor on Monday.
