March 18, 2016 10:49 am by Frank Trigg

UFC 200 is set for July 9th inside the new T-Mobile arena Las Vegas and should be the biggest event in the company history but the lineup is not set. Miesha Tate, the newly crowned bantamweight champion, said she would like to fight.

“I’ve been kind of tossing around the idea if it would be possible to fight at UFC 200. That would be awesome, but I really have no idea what the UFC has in mind for that,” Tate told reporters at a UFC Fight Night 85 media event in Brisbane, Australia.” I think they already have a couple of title fights, so it may not be realistic. But I’ll stay ready for that, if that’s something that becomes an option or available, then great. If not then we’ll see what comes next.”

Miesha in what many thought was a come from behind victory over Holly Holm at UFC 196 is open to take on anyone the UFC puts in front of her.

“I know that there’s a lot of really top contenders, a lot of girls in the division, that are really chomping at the bit,” Tate told reporters. “I think I’ve been called out by probably everybody in the top-6, if not potentially the top-10. So, they’re all gunning for me, and they’re all dangerous, and they all have their different attributes to bring to the table, so I think my job as the champ is just to stay ready for whoever.
“I’m just going to stay in the gym, and I have to be able to beat every single one of them.”(Transcription via MMA Junkie)
