And beat off to it too.
Miesha tate returns against Marion Renau, July 17th.

https://mmajunkie.usatoday.com/2021/03/ufc-miesha-tate-ends-retirement-books-return-marion-reneau-fight-night

Miesha has been retired in what would've been 5 years in November.
It'll be interesting to see what kind of shape both physically and mentally miesha comes back in, im normally very doubtful of retired fighters returning but miesha has always had a fighters spirit that is much bigger and stronger than any of her actual skills.
She won't be a champ but Marion is a good test as to whether this is a good idea or not.
I'm not a huge fan of Tate and I'm even less fond of retiring fighters returning like this but let's see what gets done, she's usually in decent fights.

This is possibly the most opportunistic return I have ever heard of. Shes essentially asked the ufc to keep someone who's like, what..0-3 or 0-4 in her last stretch. I mean Marion is game and I'm a fan, but what a way to stage a one off comeback to "end on a win".

Haha, or there was some fall out. There were a few articles on some shady business practices going on over at ONE. Take the writer's content with a grain of salt.

Don't forget she also squeezed out two puppies in the interim. Hopefully she's been keeping in shape, maybe those melons are even nicer now :cig: :cig:

Fighting a 3-6-1 over the last 10 opponent is a weak move by Tate.

I’d respect facing a top 10 opponent, but not someone who is VERY generously ranked #12.

At least we see how she looks post-baby.

Man Marion still has 3x as many wins as tate does in the last 5 years.
Tate should route her, if she should be coming back to fighting this should be as big of a mismatch as you're saying.
But coming off 4+ years of retirement and baby this is a great feeler to see if she has it or even wants it still.
