Chael Sonnen on Miesha Tate challenging Amanda Nunes


Chael Sonnen believes Miesha Tate has come out of retirement to become a UFC champion. He believes she is just two wins away from winning the women’s bantamweight title again. According to ‘The American Gangster’, ‘Cupcake’ is closer to a world title fight than welterweight contender Khamzat Chimaev.

Sonnen pointed out that the UFC has given Tate the main event slot for this weekend’s Fight Night event. It’s because they are keen to put her in the title picture if she can get a few wins in the Octagon. He further stated that due to Nunes’ dominance, the promotion requires popular fighters like Miesha Tate to stand up against her to create an intrigue among fans:

“She’s two fights away. Miesha Tate is closer to a world title fight than Khamzat Chimaev … Miesha has come back to fight Amanda Nunes. She hasn’t made it a secret. She said it very much. clearly to everyone up front … She’s a main event. She’s about to be a main event that she shouldn’t be after so many years. She shouldn’t be ready for this , it should not be able to hold 25 minutes, [however], I predict it is. I think she will win … Two victories including this one, she is back for the dream. Miesha Tate is a star. Amanda Nunes is looking for someone like Miesha Tate, she is looking for challenges, “Sonnen said on the Bad Guy INC podcast.

Miesha Tate believes a win this weekend could see her become the top contender in the bantamweight division

Tate returned to the UFC in July earlier this year and defeated Marion Reneau via TKO in the third round. Despite her victory, Tate believes fans aren’t ready to accept her as a legitimate title contender. She plans to change that this weekend when she fights Ketlen Vieira. If she manages to secure a victory against Viera, Miesha Tate believes it will break through in the title image:

“I know I have worked for many years. I am a former champion. I finished a woman that was never finished. I am going to go on November 20, I am going to shock the world again and I gonna make a case. If the UFC likes me, if the glove fits, if the storyline goes, then I’ll be there, “Tate told MMA Fighting.

Miesha Tate (@MieshaTate) had a successful comeback months ago, can it follow up with another win over a shrewd Ketlen Vieira? 👊🏻💥 How do you see this unfolding? https://t.co/b7v39WdNZM
