Miesha Tate Scores Saturday’s Main Event And She Doesn’t Agree With New Champ’s Reign

Former UFC bantamweight champion Miesha Tate

Germaine de Randamie did what many said felt she couldn’t and that was beat Holly Holm by unanimous decision (48-47, 48-47, 48-47) to capture the UFC women’s featherweight title in the main event of Saturday’s UFC 208.

de Randamie clearly won the first two rounds and Holm the last two rounds. Near the end of the third round, Holm connected on a flush head kick and punch to drop the 145-pound champion. Many media members and fans watch the event thought that was enough for “The Preacher’s Daughter” to win the round. The judges didn’t as all three judges scored the third round for the Dutch striker.

One media member who scored the fight for Holm was UFC on Fox analyst and former women’s bantamweight champion, Miesha Tate who defeated the Greg Jackson-Mike Winkeljohn fighter to win the title at UFC 196.

Feelings aside, “Cupcake” though gave credit to de Randamie for the way she fought against and looks forward to seeing what is next for her.

Last week, Tate said don’t count on her coming out of retirement to compete at featherweight but considering the result of Saturday night, maybe the Las Vegas will change her tune.
