MMA Twitter celebrates vintage Miesha Tate performance at UFC Vegas 31

  MMA Twitter celebrates vintage Miesha Tate performance at UFC Vegas 31 Twitter reacts to Miesha Tate’s win against Marion Reneau at UFC Vegas 31 on Saturday night. After a five-year layoff, former UFC bantamweight champion and longtime women’s MMA pioneer, Miesha Tate, finished Marion Reneau at UFC Vegas 31. Tate entered the bout with a lot of unanswered questions. Years of self-reflection finally led to her making her return to the Octagon. The first two rounds were quite competitive, as both women traded blows on the feet before it finally got to the ground. Near the end of the second round, Tate was briefly caught in a kimura attempt before being saved by the bell.

Miesha Tate‘s return to MMA from a nearly five-year retirement was a success on Saturday when she beat Marion Reneau in the UFC on ESPN 26 co-main event.
