A year ago it was unthinkable to suggest that Miesha Tate would be champ and that she and Amanda Nunes would be headlining an epic event such at UFC 200. But here we are – what a sport!
The champ comes out shooting takedowns, obviously in hopes of avoiding Nunes’ heavy hands. But the Brazilian stuffs every one of them, and commences jabbing the crap out of Tate. Bloody and dazed, Tate is stumbling backwards trying to change levels, and soon Nunes has taken her back. The choke, and tap out, comes soon after, and Nunes is the new champ.
Result: Amanda Nunes def. Miesha Tate via Submission (Rear Naked Choke) at 3:16, R1
