Review: 2014-09-20, fight not particularly exciting between Miesha Tate and Rin Nakai: it gets two stars. The former Strikeforce women’s Bw champion Miesha Tate entered this fight with a mma record of 14-5-0 (64% finishing rate) and she is ranked as the No.5 women’s bantamweight in the world; she lost two out of two fights in 2013, against Cat Zingano (=Tate vs Zingano) and the rematch against #1 Ronda Rousey (=Rousey vs Tate 2), but she came back to win in 2014 beating Liz Carmouche (=Tate vs Carmouche).
Her opponent, the undefeated black belt in judo and former Pancrase women’s Bw champion Rin Nakai, has an official record of 16-0-1 (62% finishing rate) and she entered as the No.12 in the same weight class, she has already fought once in 2014 beating Sarah D’Alelio. Tate vs Nakai is on the undercard of Mark Hunt vs Roy Nelson – UFC FN 52 (UFC Fight Night Japan). Watch the video and rate this fight!
