“I believe the UFC brought me to Japan for a reason. I think the reason is to grow the women’s mixed martial arts fanbase and that makes me feel good about my presence here. I think I have a strong presence and a strong following, even in Japan.”

During this week’s media rounds in Japan, top UFC female Miesha Tate explained why she’s ready to lead the charge into Japan.

Tate also discussed her opponents lack of nickname and what Rin Nakai should go by.

“Personally I kind of like ‘The Asian Persuasion’ for Rin. I thought that’s a cute nickname because she’s very persuasive in her videos.’
