The UFC have confirmed that former UFC women’s Bantamweight champion Miesha Tate will face Raquel Pennington at UFC 205, November 12th at Madison Square Garden in New York.
Miesha Tate (19-6) is coming off a loss to Amanda Nunez at UFC 200 where she lost the women’s Bantamweight belt by submission in the 1st round. This was her first title defence after winning the belt at UFC 196 against Holly Holm by submission in the final minutes of the fight. Her loss to Amanda Nunez put a stop to her 5 fight win streak.
Raquel Pennington (8-5) is coming off a win over Elizabeth Philips at UFC 202, winning by unanimous decision. Previously to that she had defeated Bethe Correia by split decision in April. Her last loss was to Holly Holm by split decision back in UFC 184 in February last year.
This event will be the first time the UFC have put on a show in New York since the ban on MMA was lifted. The main event for this card is still to be announced.
