Tate Calls Out Mackenzie Dern

The newly retired Miesha Tate is just not feeling it anymore in MMA.  She is now able to compete in her favorite aspect of mma, grappling and ju-jitsu.  It seems like a natural progression for her to now compete in the grappling tournaments. This would not have been possible a couple of years ago, but now with Eddie Bravo Invitational, Polaris and many others, there are a lot of venues more than willing to accept UFC and former UFC fighters on to the mat in front of a knowledgeable crowd.

In a post fight interview, after defeating Jessica Eye at Submission Underground 2 she expressed her love of grappling and possible future opponent.

"I would love to compete against Mackenzie [Dern], I know that she’s credentialed as one of the best," Tate said. "So, I’d like to test myself. Jessica [Eye] is obviously I tough opponent, she’s a test in herself, but I’d really like to venture into the grappling world more."
