Female Fighter Vs Four Dudes
Former UFC women’s bantamweight champion Miesha Tate just gave birth to her firstborn, Amaia, in June. The women’s champion hasn’t fought in November 2016 though she remains an active advocate of the sport.
Also, while motherhood has forced her to re-evaluate her priorities due to a hectic schedule, she still intends to take part in competitive grappling matches in the near future – perhaps as soon as six months from now.
“I definitely see training as part of my life moving forward. There’s no way I could just let that go. It’s been such a big part of my life since, I would say, 15 years old is when I started wrestling. I’m anxious to get back. I’m not quite there, but I’m really close. I’m working out, but I just haven’t actually got back on the mat.
“I think I want to start with some drilling and then work into grappling, and I would like to compete in some grappling competitions of some sort.”
Before the excellent fighter does any of that, here’s a moment in her prime when the female grappler fought against four dudes inside the cage.
Prior to that, we saw Tate take on Donald Cerrone for a bit of friendly grappling on the mats. During this session, Tate even locked up a submission on “Cowboy.” So this left a lot of fans asking, how would the fighter do against some guys who are really trying to take her on?
The answer: Pretty damn well.
Janoskians, a group of Australian viral video pranksters, challenged Tate in a series of hard rolls over at XTreme Couture Gym in Las Vegas. If you are wondering, a ‘couple’ of them survived more than a minute, once or twice.
They released a highlight video of their series of failed attempts to beat a former MMA champion. Despite being a female, her skills and talent have thrown these masculines to the defeating end.
Their video was captioned: “Miesha Tate gave us 2 minutes each to ‘see how many times she can make us tap.” Now, it’s for you to count.

As for Tate’s upcoming plans for her career, here is her recent statement:
“Motherhood has forced me to totally reorganize my life and change things. I used to be such a spur-of-the-moment person, and I realize now I have a baby, and I have to really plan things and think things through and have a diaper bag, and I’m really responsible for this whole other little person, so it’s given me a whole other new perspective and such a respect for parents, and obviously mothers. Every mother who’s done this before me has my complete admiration because it’s not easy.”
