Donald Cerrone was celebrating his UFC Fight Night on FOX win over Edson Barboza with some Budweiser long necks at the press conference. Miesha Tate, sitting next to him, asked for an extra. Cerrone obliged.
“We clinked bottles,” said Tate, who beat Liz Carmouche that April night in Orlando.
Now, Tate and Cerrone are part of the same management team — and Tate has a Budweiser sponsorship all her own.
KHI Management Inc., owned by NASCAR driver Kevin Harvick, announced Friday that Tate would be its second UFC client. KHI already has sponsorship deals set up for Tate with Core24, E-Z-GO, Pro.Fit and, of course, Budweiser for her fight in Japan on Sept. 20.
