Looking to win her fourth straight bout and lock up a rare third title shot potentially against a fighter she’s been finished by twice, No. 2-ranked UFC women’s bantamweight Miesha Tate had a lot of pressure heading into her co-main event match-up with Jessica Eye at tonight’s (Sat., July 25, 2015) UFC on FOX 16 from the United Center in Chicago, Illinois.
Tate delivered in the face of adversity, overcoming some early shots from Eye to rock the talented boxer in both of the opening rounds, following with a threatening guillotine attempt that may have forced ‘Evil’ to tap if the bell had not sounded on the second.
Ultimately ‘Cupcake’ took home a clear-cut unanimous decision victory to get the next confirmed shot at the winner of Ronda Rousey vs. Bethe Correia at next Saturday night’s (August 1, 2015) UFC 190 from Rio de Janeiro.
