Miesha Tate eyes bantamweight return after ‘terrible’ reduce to 125: ‘Made me want to blow my brains out’
Former Ultimate Combating Championship (UFC) women’s bantamweight champion Miesha Tate has no plans to retire from mixed martial arts (MMA), regardless of dropping two right away fights — along side her flyweight debut towards Lauren Murphy at UFC Long Island earlier this month on ABC.
Alternatively “Cupcake” does have some artwork to do if she wants to stick competitive.
“As soon as I get a good sports activities actions psychologist and start to get to the bottom of or resolve how you can channel, I consider I’ll have additional thought,” Tate said on her Sirius XM radio show. “I don’t understand how long it takes. It can be a in reality simple restore. The potency, my physically ability, the shape that I’m in, the best way through which I educate, the skill set that I have, is all there. I merely have to put it in the suitable place on the right kind time.”
Tate retired from MMA after an uninspired loss to Raquel Pennington at UFC 205 once more in overdue 2016, then made her triumphant return to the Octagon with a technical knockout victory over Marion Reneau more or less 5 years later. What followed was once a lopsided loss to No. 2-ranked Ketlen Vieira, a potency that sent “Cupcake” proper right down to flyweight.
For some way long continues to be seen.
“I undoubtedly need to take some time to resolve it out,” Tate persisted. “It was once a in reality long camp, it got drawn out two events. I don’t know if I’m going to stay at 125 or just go back to 135 where I can revel in [my life]. The diet, for that long, made me want to blow my brains out. It was once terrible. I consider I might stay at 135. I don’t know. We’ll see. I need fairly time to regroup and see where I’m going from it.”
Tate turns 36 in just a few weeks.
