Miesha Tate has Signed a Multi-Fight Contract with the UFC

February 11, 2013 Penny Buffington - PennyJoMMA


Tate has signed a multi-fight contract with the UFC, manager Malki Kawa announced today. Tate will compete in the UFC’s newly-formed Women’s Bantamweight division. Her first opponent is expected to be announced soon.

“It is every mixed martial artist’s dream to compete in the UFC. It’s exciting knowing that the deal is officially in place, and I can begin working to book my first UFC opponent. I want to thank the UFC and Malki Kawa for helping to make this dream a reality,” Tate said.

I would love to see a mini tourney for the next title shot, Sara McMann, Meisha Tate, Sarah Kaufman, and Alexis Davis or something along those lines.

Now there's an upside to Honda losing, believe it or not. Meisha comes in, smashes Liz, and they do the first female TUF to market a Tate/Rousey rematch.

Regardless, very smart move by Dana. Sign another "big name" to reassure fans that WMMA isn't completely reliant on the success/failure of Honda.

Well they need another challenger for Ronda so i'm sure they're hoping Tate will pick up a win so she at least has a streak going.

What they need is to add depth to the division to make it viable. It can't all be about Rhonda. Zuffa is obviously trying to gather talent for the division so hopefully this is a good sign for wmma in the future.

And by the hammer of thor would it be awesome to kick off the 115 lbs womens division a year from now with an all femal TUF house with Ronda and Tate as the hot ass coaches!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Or any division honestly. It makes sense to market the woman through TUF, fill in a division with new fighters who have an chance to build some fan recognition through TUF, and not take any male fighters out of competitions for the rest of the year. Plus, after this season they have few viable options to get ratings and continue the franchise.

I agree with the both of you. An all female TUF would be a good thing IMO. Phone Post
