Former UFC women’s bantamweight contender suffered pro career’s eighth loss to Tate at the July 17 co-main event via third-round knockout. The 44-year-old ends her career with a 9-8-1 record after losing all five of her last fights.
Reneau last won against Sara McMann in February 2018 via submission in the second round. She made her UFC debut back in January 2015 against Alexis Dufresne. Her biggest career win is undoubtedly her second UFC fight where he defeated Jessica Andrade via first-round submission.
By the looks of it, it seems that the Belizean Bruiser will spend her time teaching MMA at the Trifecta MMA, an MMA training academy situated in Quincy.
