Following Tate’s (17-5 MMA, 4-2 UFC) win over Jessica Eye (11-3 MMA, 1-2 UFC) in the co-main event of UFC on FOX 16, UFC President Dana White confirmed that Tate had regained No. 1 contender status and would face the winner of the UFC 190 main event between UFC women’s bantamweight champion Rousey (11-0 MMA, 5-0 UFC) and challenger Correia (9-0 MMA, 3-0 UFC).
“Yeah, she is (No. 1 contender),” White said at the 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.”
