ufc 200

Now that Miesha Tate is the UFC female bantamweight champion, she knows each and every opponent standing in front of her will be a test.

Tate will take on Amanda Nunes this July at UFC 200 from Las Vegas.

In March, Tate (18-5) scored her fifth consecutive victory when she submitted then-unbeaten Holly Holm in the fifth round. She’s also bested the likes of Jessica Eye, Sara McMann and Liz Carmouche since her last loss.

As for Nunes (12-4), the 27-year-old Brazilian has scored three straight wins, highlighted by a submission of McMann.

“She’s well rounded,” said Tate, during an appearance on UFC Tonight. “It seems to me like she hits the wall. She’s a great striker. She has one-punch knockout power. She’s a phenomenal judo specialist. She’s a great grappler.

“I’m coming prepared for five rounds. I think I can break her. I’m going to grind her to the end.”
