Miesha Tate

Miesha Tate continues her comeback in a main event slot according to Combate.

The former UFC and Strikeforce bantamweight champion is scheduled to square off against Ketlen Viera on October 16.

‘Cupcake’ returned from a five-year retirement in the UFC Vegas 31 co-main event and looked sensational. Tate put on a dominant performance against Mario Reneau before becoming the first fighter to ever stop the 44-year-old in the third and final round.

Viera is coming off an upset loss to Yana Kunitskaya at UFC Vegas 19. The Brazilian dropped to a decision defeat, in what is so far just the second loss of her MMA career. The 29-year-old holds several high-profile wins over the likes of Sijara Eubanks, Cat Zingano, Sara McMann and Ashlee Evans-Smith.
