When news broke that Miesha Tate and Jessica Eye would be meeting at “UFC on FOX 16”, it wasn’t confirmed that the victor would be next in line for a shot at the title. After Tate’s dominant performance this past Saturday night, it was expected that she would be making a run at the title.
Now, it’s official: Miesha Tate will face either Ronda Rousey or Bethe Correia.
“Yeah, she is [No. 1 contender],” White said at the ‘UFC on FOX 16’ post fight press conference. “You know, Miesha is such a durable human being. She will stand in front of you and take what you’ve got. Because she was getting picked apart in that first round. She keeps coming forward to land what she has to land or get you to the ground or do what she has to do to win. She did it again tonight. She has worked her way back to Ronda Rousey.”
