Strikeforce CEO announced on Wednesday that Amanda Nunes will return to the promotion next month. Nunes will welcome Cat Zingano to the cage at Strikeforce: Melendez vs. Healy.
Nunes (7-2) last fought in Strikeforce last September, falling via TKO to Alexis Davis. She earned a submission victory earlier this year over Raquel Pa'aluhi in Invicta FC.
Zingano (6-0) has earned three knockout and two submission victories in her career. Her last pro bout was in 2011 when he earned a KO of Takayo Hashi via slam.
"Thank you Scott for the opportunity and thank you Amanda," Zingano wrote on Twitter. "I look forward to the competition."
