Miesha Tate removes her own stitches and shares video


Former UFC bantamweight champion Miesha Tate’s second fight since coming out of retirement was a tough one, and she bore the damage to her face as proof.

Tate was beaten and bloodied after a stunning strike from Ketlen Vieira, who won his UFC Fight Night 198 headliner by unanimous decision on Saturday, November 20.

Officially, Tate has been sentenced to a potential six-month medical suspension by the Nevada Athletic Commission, to be cleared by a doctor for potential fractures to her nose. Tate also received stitches under his left eye, which was visibly damaged from the fight.

As for the stitches? It was time for them to get out this week, and Tate didn’t bother to see the doctor about it. She just did it herself – and shared video on his YouTube channel, which can be seen below.

The video description reads as follows:

“Who needs a doctor !? Healing fast and ready to go, but those stitches need to come out first! “

“I don’t think there’s any point in going to the doctor to get them out, but I’m also a little crazy,” Tate says in the video.

She is a fighter, after all.
