Matched with Lauren Murphy
January 10, 2022
Tate will face Lauren Murphy in a flyweight fight on April 9, MMAFighting.com reports.
Tate will drop from bantamweight to flyweight after losing three of her last four matches. The former bantamweight champ most recently dropped a five-round unanimous decision to Ketlen Vieira in November. In Murphy, she'll face an opponent who's also coming off a loss, though Murphy's TKO defeat against Valentina Shevchenko in September represents her only setback in her last six trips to the Octagon.

Hangs tough in decision loss
November 20, 2021
Tate lost to Ketlen Vieira via unanimous decision (47-48, 47-48, 46-49) at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Las Vegas.
As expected, Tate had a much more difficult time with Vieira than the since-retired Marion Reneau who she fought in her previous bout this past July. The truth of the matter is that virtually all of the rounds outside of the final one were close, and the numbers reflected that. Tate landed 145 total strikes compared to 156 from Vieira. Tate was predictably the fighter who attempted to get the bout to the mat, ultimately landing 1-of-6 takedown attempts. Miesha was at her best when she was able to control Vieira in the clinch and fire off shots. When the two women separated, the Brazilian countered Tate to death. The UFC's 135-pound female division is painfully thin, and Tate remains a popular name, but the 35-year-old hadn't fought in four and a half years prior to the Reneau fight and it was always a stretch to believe Tate could beat top competition following her time away. Expect consistency to remain an issue moving forward for the former champion.
