Miesha Tate takes on Amanda Nunes at UFC 200

Tate (16-5) is riding a five-fight winning streak dating back to April of 2014. At UFC 196, Tate shocked the world when she came from behind and finished Holly Holm to claim the 135-pound women’s gold.

Nunes (12-4) has looked very impressive since her UFC debut in 2013. She is currently riding a three-fight winning streak and is 5-1 in her Octagon tenure. Most recently the Brazilian earned a unanimous decision against Valentina Shevchenko, also at UFC 196.

UFC 200 goes down from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada on July 9.
