Former UFC women’s bantamweight champion Miesha Tate won’t close the door on making a return to mixed martial arts in the future.
Tate stunningly retired from the sport after losing to Raquel Pennington at UFC 205 in 2016. Since then, she moved on to become the Vice President of ONE Championship in Singapore.
Speaking to Michael Chiesa on MMA on SiriusXM, Tate spoke of how she still enjoys training and would like to compete against Cris Cyborg in grappling. “I feel amazing… I feel like I could fight Amanda Nunes better tonight than the night that I fought her,” Tate said.
Tate still has six fights remaining on her UFC contract and that’s one reason why she is considering the grappling competition with Cyborg.
In this video, Patrick Auger and Drake Riggs react to Tate’s comments and discuss the possibility of her returning to the UFC or another promotion.
