Marion Reneau

The Belizean Bruiser


Ends career with defeat
July 17, 2021
Reneau lost to Miesha Tate via TKO (strikes) at 1:53 of Round 3 at UFC on ESPN 26 on Saturday in Las Vegas.
That will put a close to Reneau's 13-fight, six-plus-year UFC run. She finishes with a 5-7-1 record, which all things considered, isn't too darn bad, especially when you take into account she lost her last five fights. Reneau turned 44 years of age last month, and while she keeps herself in great shape, it was abundantly clear she was no longer able to fight with the same type of physicality we saw from her in the early portion of her UFC run. Reneau earned victories over both Jessica Andrade and Sara McMann, while also stepping into the octagon with the likes of Tate, Holly Holm, and Cat Zingano. Not too bad for a former California teacher.
