UFC on ESPN 26 WEIGH-INS: Miesha Tate vs Marion Reneau 18 July, 2021 - 10:11pm

Miesha Tate Says She's Returning To The UFC To Become Champion Again

TMZ 18 July, 2021 - 10:11pm

TMZ Sports talked to 34-year-old Tate -- who hasn't been in the Octagon under the bright lights of the UFC since November 2016 ... when she lost to Raquel Pennington.

FYI, that happened to be UFC 205 -- the Conor McGregor vs. Eddie Alvarez card -- one of the fights that made The Notorious a global superstar.

1,708 days later, Tate is taking on 44-year-old Marion Reneau as the co-main event at UFC Fight Night ... and we asked the UFC star what she wanted to accomplish this 2nd time around.

"This is not just a cash grab, it’s not just a fight. I want to be a champion again."

In fact, Tate -- who beat Holly Holm for the bantamweight title in 2016 -- tells us the layoff actually made her a BETTER fighter.

"Much better. I’m not gonna lie, much better. But, I have to prove that, so just let me glow up and then I can prove it to you guys."

And, Miesha says the comeback isn't only about her ... it's also about showing her kids that women can be great moms AND also have a badass and super-successful career.

"I love my kids more than anything, but at the same time, I want to show them that just because you become a mother, you know mothers get lost a lot of times in our world. It’s ok for the dad to do and be, but the mom just kinda just be the mom," Tate says.

"I want to show my children that women and mothers can have dreams, and goals, and ambition, and still be great mothers."

UFC on ESPN 26: Islam Makhachev and Miesha Tate Post Dominant Wins

Sports News, Strategy, Tips, and Results

Islam Makhachev was victorious in the headliner of the UFC on ESPN 26 last night, beating Thiago Moises. At the same event, we saw Miesha Tate beating Marion Reneau, marking her comeback from retirement with a victory.

Makhachev once again proved that he is one of the best fighters in the UFC lightweight division, extending his victorious streak to 8 victories, currently the fourth-longest in the organization. At the moment, he has just one defeat in 10 UFC battles, and the only one who had the better record in this division was his mentor, the former undisputed and undefeated champion, Khabib Nurmagomedov.

Khabib and Makhachev were long-time friends and sparring partners, and during the Russian Eagle’s reign in the octagon, Makhachev was constantly by Khabib’s side. Without any doubt, we can say that he learned a lot.

Islam Makhachev wins via RNC in the 4th. Dominant. Impressive. Again.

Would love to see him fight a top 5-7 guy next. It’s time. RDA or Chandler type. Let’s go.

— Ariel Helwani (@arielhelwani) July 18, 2021

Throughout the entire battle, Makhachev was all over the rival, who couldn’t do anything to either attack or protect himself. Moises experienced one hard beating, which started immediately in the first round.

Fired-up, Makhachev went out and started throwing punches before taking down Moises to the mat, where he unleashed hard strikes that would leave a mark on Moises’ face. It was obvious following this sequence that the Brazilian isn’t going to have a pleasant experience.

The second round was slightly better for Moises, who slowed down the rival’s attacks, but that turned out to be just temporary. Makhachev pumped up the tempo in the third and the fourth, which lead to a stoppage and another win.

At 2:38 of the fourth period, the referee stopped the fight after seeing Moises’ tap. The Brazilian had to back out as Makhachev reached into a position for a rare-naked choke and firmly caught his rival into a trap. There was no way for Moises to run away this time.

The Russian fighter is one of the best in the division, and even though he sat 8th in the standings before tonight’s event, many believed that he actually deserves a much better position. He had a few injury setbacks that prevented him from attacking the title earlier and also experienced a few turndowns by other rivals. Makhachev didn’t miss a chance to mention that following the battle tonight.

“Why all these guys run?” Makhachev said. “Nobody wants to take this fight. Please give me an answer.”

For his next target, the 29-year old picked the former champion, Rafael dos Anjos, saying that he can’t hide from his challenge now.

“You can run, but you can’t hide. I am here.”

In the co-main event of the night, the former UFC bantamweight champion, Miesha Tate, defeated Marion Reneau via TKO at 1:53 of the third round. Following a five-year absence, the 34-year old decided to come back into the octagon and performed quite well actually.

Tate won the title in 2016 against Holly Holm, then lost it against Amanda Nunes a few months later. Near the end of the same year, Tate decided to walk away from MMA after her unanimous decision loss to Raquel Pennington.

She dominated tonight’s bout from the start until the end, not giving the slightest chance to Reneau to retire with a win. This was the final battle for the 44-year old veteran who ended her MMA.

Former champ Miesha Tate turns back the clock in UFC return

Las Vegas Review-Journal 17 July, 2021 - 11:53pm

Miesha Tate didn’t miss a beat as she came out of retirement after nearly five years to earn a victory on the UFC on ESPN 26 card at the Apex.

Miesha Tate made her return from a retirement of nearly five years on the UFC on ESPN 26 card on Saturday night at the Apex.

The 34-year-old former women’s bantamweight champion stopped Marion Reneau with a series of punches on the ground near the cage at 1:53 of the third round for her first win since winning the title in March 2016.

“I’m so happy,” she said. “This has been a lot of hard work and self discovery, but I’m here and I’m back.”

In the main event, lightweight Islam Makhachev won his eighth straight as he finished Thiago Moises on a rear-naked choke in the fourth round.

Makhachev, the protege of former lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov, is a rising star and future contender. But it was Tate who stole the show on Saturday.

After winning the belt against Holly Holm, Tate was knocked out by Amanda Nunes and then dropped a decision to Raquel Pennington that November, before deciding to retire. She cited personal issues, particularly a relationship she called “toxic,” for zapping her will to compete.

During her time away, she met her current fiance and had two children with him. Her desire to resume her career was also sparked and now she’s ready to make a run.

“With all due respect, I’m not here for a fight,” she said after the win. “I’m here for a belt.”

Tate secured takedowns in all three rounds before finally becoming the first person to ever finish Reneau in a professional fight.

“I want to absorb it and take it in,” she said. “It’s been five years in the making and I want to celebrate. I was the first person to finish Marion. I checked a lot of things on the bucket list today. I made some dreams come true.”

Reneau took off her gloves and left them in the cage after the loss, doubling down on her pre-fight announcement that she would retire from the sport at 44 years old.

“I’m glad I went out the way I did,” she said. “I must admit I’ve always been a fan of her. To be able to fight her, I gave it all I had and that’s it. That’s what was left for me.”

An undercard bout between Miles Johns and Anderson dos Santos was canceled hours before they were supposed to walk to the cage because of COVID-19 protocols. According to UFC officials, the issue was in the dos Santos camp.

MMA handicapper Lou Finocchiaro (@GambLou) recommends a play on Makhachev to win inside the distance, which pays +145 at Circa Sports.

Nick Diaz will come out of retirement and make his return to the UFC on Sept. 25 at T-Mobile Arena against welterweight Robbie Lawler, 17 years after they first fought.

UFC star Conor McGregor underwent a surgery of more than three hours in Los Angeles and issued a statement afterward dismissing his UFC 264 loss to Dustin Poirier.

Dustin Poirier improved to 2-1 against Conor McGregor with a win at UFC 264 after McGregor suffered a broken tibia in the first round, meaning a fourth fight is possible.

Dustin Poirier earned his second win of 2021 with win over Conor McGregor at UFC 264.

Former President Donald Trump was loudly cheered as he appeared at the UFC 264 bouts at T-Mobile Arena on Saturday night, according to media reports.

Dustin Poirier has climbed to a -140 favorite over Conor McGregor (+120) at Las Vegas sportsbooks after the Irishman opened as a -120 favorite.
