Zingano was asked what was going through her head as she entered the Octagon. She said to herself, ‘Stop crying!’ Tate was irrate with referee Kim Winslow for her “early” stoppage. “I don’t for one second feel it should have been stopped,” Cupcake stated. Tate wasn’t sure, but thought one of Zingano’s knees to her head could have been illegal. Faber said he’ll face whoever the UFC wants to give him next. White jokingly suggested he should fight his twin, Liz Carmouche. Zingano was asked if she had a message for Ronda Rousey, who was sitting in the media room. Zingano said, “Good luck.” Rousey and Tate were asked to pose for a face-off when the presser wrapped. Rousey didn’t hesitate in trying to intimidate her next opponent by getting right in her grill.
