Miesha Tate Confident Of Ending Amanda Nunes’ Dream UFC Run
UFC women’s bantamweight Miesha Tate is willing to avenge her 2016 loss against Amanda Nunes, but she is in no hurry to do so.
“I know that sometimes you only get one shot. When I take that shot at Amanda, it will be the perfect timing,” Tate told ESPN MMA’s Marc Raimondi.
“I’ll have the perfect aim. I will be the sniper to take her out. But I’m not gonna jump the gun. I’m going to build my way into it and make sure I’m allowing my body the time to evolve, my mind, everything to be in that perfect form so that when I get to that title shot, I’ll be ready.”
Nunes, the current two-division UFC champion, has been on a roll since ending Tate’s five-fight winning streak at UFC 200.
The Lioness has been ruling the bantamweight and featherweight divisions for a while now and none of the females on the roster seem like a huge hurdle for Nunes.
Tate had retired in 2016 after losing to Raquel Pennington at UFC 205. This year, she came out of retirement and aims to dominate the roster once again.
“Everything’s going to go according to what I feel like is right. I get to be the boss of my career and I feel like the ball is in my court,” Tate continued.
She is scheduled to fight Ketlen Vieira on Saturday, November 20.
