Miesha Tate is scheduled to be the next opponent for UFC bantamweight world champion Ronda Rousey in December 2015 and some UFC fans think that the third meeting could result in one of the biggest upsets in UFC history.
Many people forget that the number one ranked bantamweight UFC female fighter is the only woman to have lasted longer than one round in a championship fight with Ronda Rousey. In fact, in their second UFC battle she lasted almost three rounds which when compared to the majority of Ronda Rousey’s opponents is the equivalent of a marathon.
Miesha Tate comes in as a decided underdog and this is something that could be to her advantage as some UFC followers suspect that Ronda Rousey could easily be overlooking the Washington native and thinking about the possibility of fighting Cristiane ‘Cyborg' Justino which could result in something different happening in that maybe the champion could be surprised in their fight.
One thing that UFC observers have noted is that Ronda Rousey has never really been placed in danger in a fight. No fighter has identified a weakness and attacked it and as such none have had success creating the element of fear in her. However, one thing that comes from being an underdog who has actually fought Ronda Rousey more than once is that the fighter, in this situation Miesha Tate, can actually work on the weaknesses in her fight game such as her 'striking power' that were exploited by the champion and turn them into strengths.
Miesha Tate is a fighter who could turn the UFC bantamweight division upside down by defeating Ronda Rousey and while few give her any chance of doing so it is not something that is out of the realm of possibilities, especially considering how hard she is training, the physical gains she is making as shown in recent pictures of her on her social media Instagram page and her actually wanting to fight the champion.
A fighter who could make some bettors in Las Vegas very happy in December 2015 with an early Xmas gift of a surprise win in a UFC Championship fight, Miesha Tate.
