Miesha Tate who is a former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) women’s bantamweight champion Miesha Tate has earlier voiced out that the UFC needs to create more weight divisions for the women fighters. UFC only had two women’s divisions, the strawweight (115 pounds) and the bantamweight divisions (135 pounds) which meant Miesha Tate nude on weigh-ins is no longer gonna happen.
Miesha Tate had to cut weight and use extreme measures to make it to 135 pounds and fighters like her could go to 145 and worry about fighting instead of cutting weight.
Also Cris Cyborg Justino called for a featherweight (145 pounds) and flyweight (125 pounds) division.
Miesha Tate thought these changes can take a while but UFC recently announced the creation of a Featherweight division featuring Holly Holm and Germaine de Randamie on Feb. 11.
Now that a Featherweight title has been created is Miesha Tate going to Unretire? Preparing for a fight while actively cutting weight can take a toll on a fighter, and with this Miesha can just focus on fighting.
The creation of the Featherweight division also means smaller fighting pool and Miesha could start reigning or making money in that division. UFC president Dana White also believe that there are not a lot of high level women at the featherweight division (145 pounds).
We certainly want to see the sexy Miesha Tate even if it means we are not going to see her weigh-in nude.
