Miesha Tate and Elaina Maxwell - Strikeforce

Miesha Tate blasting Elaina Maxwell

Strikeforce fighter Miesha Tate earned her shot at the promotion’s 135-pound division title defeating two fighters in one night last August. Now she is finally nearing her shot.

Tate on Saturday Tweeted that she is starting her training camp for Strikeforce women’s welterweight champion Marloes Coenen, with her sights set on the promotion’s March 5 date in Columbus, Ohio.

Tate said she is “hoping for the March 5 card,” but wasn’t sure that date would hold true. MMAWeekly.com sources close to the situation confirmed that the fight has not yet been scheduled for the Arnold Fitness Classic weekend, but it is a possibility.

Tate has been waiting patiently since August, while Coenen stepped into the title picture and captured the belt from former champion Sarah Kaufmann.

Strikeforce has a Jan. 29 fight card featuring men’s welterweight champion Nick Diaz defending his belt against Evangelista “Cybrog” Santos. The promotion is also working on as of yet unannounced February fight card, along with the March 5 event.
