Miesha Tate’s manager refutes claims that Tate turned down Holly Holm rematch

April 8, 2016 8:24 am by Evan Bell

Earlier this week, Holly Holm’s manager called out Miesha Tate for taking “the easy way out” and declining a rematch with Holly Holm in order to fight Amanda Nunes at UFC 200.

According to Miesha Tate’s manager Josh Jones, that wasn’t the case…

He spoke to MMAFighting:

“A fight with Holly Holm was never discussed when we met with the UFC,” Jones said. “We all agreed that Miesha should fight the best available and at this time it’s Amanda Nunes, who is currently on a three-fight win streak.”

Now, with Tate gearing up to face Amanda Nunes at UFC 200, who would you like to see Holly Holm fight next?
