Topped ranked UFC bantamweight fighter Bryan Caraway is back in the spotlight this weekend, for the first time since his high-profile breakup from his longtime girlfriend Miesha Tate.
Tate and Caraway were together since their college days, and somewhere around the time of her last fight they parted ways.
Now, Miesha is pregnant and with a new man, and up until today’s UFC 222 media event, Caraway hasn’t peeped a word about what he’s been through.
Caraway hasn’t fought since his 2016 win over Aljamain Sterling, and his fight this weekend will be his first without Tate in his corner. After more than a year on the sidelines, Caraway reveals that injuries and personal issues (his break up with Tate) are to blame for his lengthy absence.
During Thursday’s media scrum he stated,
“There were times where you just beat yourself up a little. Like, you’re not going to see the light at the end of the tunnel. Eventually, I got this fight, and I’m healthy, and things started going my way. Things are looking better for 2018.”
“I can’t look past Cody, but I really want to fight somebody in the top five – hopefully Lineker. He’s this tough, tough, gritty guy, but I can’t look past Cody, because (expletive), I could end up getting clipped and caught. It’s MMA. (Expletive) happens.”
We’re pulling for you Caraway.
