Tate recently opened up about her decision to drop down to flyweight, confessing she has unfinished business at bantamweight.

She said: “It’s something I’ve definitely thought about, but I definitely don’t want people to think that I’m running at 135.

“I hate the idea of leaving a division on a loss, it really bugs me.

“Something really bothers me about that, about leaving the division on a loss.

“It’s not out of the question by any means, but it would be a long process if I’m gonna get down to 125.

“You probably know I’ve been pretty vocal that I’m not a fan of big weight cuts, so I would definitely have to do some things to change my body to get down at that weight, but it’s not something that’s way out in left field.

“It’s definitely something that I feel like could be an option.

“I just have to decide to. I’m definitely leaning towards staying at 135, especially with the change-ups and everything like that and seeing what’s happening there, but 125 is definitely not out of the question.”

Former two-time title challenger Chael Sonnen has also moved to defend his friend and former colleague from accusations of drug-cheating after one fan asked if she is ‘on the juice’.

Replying to the fan on Twitter, he wrote: “No. I feel compelled to respond. I am quick to point the finger, but there’s two sides to that coin.

“I have known her personally since she was a “cadet” and there has never been an untimely body transformation.

“Miesha’s physique is a window into her work ethic.”
