Miesha Tate might be looking past her upcoming UFC 200 opponent. The new women's bantamweight champion is set to defend her belt for the first time at the July event against Amanda Nunes, but Tate is already planning ahead for what might come next.
At a recent press conference in New York City, Tate said that after UFC 200, she's set on a rematch against Ronda Rousey.
"I told everybody I was going to beat Holly and I did, and I'm going to beat Amanda on the 9th, and I'm going to go on," Miesha Tate said. "And hopefully, I'm going to see Ronda in Madison Square Garden."
The event she is talking about is UFC 205, which will take place on November 12 at Madison Square Garden. It will mark the UFC's long awaited return to New York City.
Ronda Rousey is expected to make her comeback on that card, but it's currently unknown who it will be against.
In the meantime, if Tate does get past Amanda Nunes at UFC 200, the next two contenders in line are likely Cat Zingano or Julianna Pena.
"I think either one of them makes a great contender, they're both right in that top ranking, we'll see who wins," Tate said. "But either way, I'm hoping Ronda's going to make a comeback before that."
