Miesha Tate certainly feels the pressure of being the latest fighter to carry the torch for women’s MMA into the Octagon, but it’s a weight she tosses aside. She has much grander goals for herself that already weigh heavily on her shoulders.
“Becoming the champion means more to me than anything, more than a rematch, more than anything,” Tate said at Thursday’s TUF 17 Finale open workouts in Las Vegas.
“That’s something when I’m 80 years old some day and I have kids and grandkids, I can look back and say this is what I did. This is my accomplishment. So that’s my ultimate goal.”
Miesha Tate faces Cat Zingano at the TUF 17 Finale on Saturday at Mandalay Bay.
