Miesha Tate recently took to her Instagram account and posted a series of pictures. She was seen stopping by at Molly’s Cupcakes but she looks awful with the recent injury she suffered against Lauren Murphy at UFC Fight Night.
I HAD to stop by @mollyscupcakes because it’s the best damn cupcakery in the USofA! Thank you to my friend @kelly_murphy who brought me a dozen on fight night…. Once those were deleted I had to make another stop myself
Valentina Shevchenko opens up on her fight with Taila Santos
UFC women’s flyweight champ Valentina Shevchenko recently opened up about her recent fight against Taila Santos.
In a recent appearance on The MMA Hour with Ariel Helwani, ‘Bullet’ talked about the two-day gap between weigh-ins and matchday. She claimed that this may have resulted in some discrepancies in Santos’ weight at UFC 275.
The Polish fighter mentioned that Santos’ extra weight might have given her an edge in her ground game against Shevchenko in the fight. ‘Bullet’ opined that the Brazilian may have weighed more than her and said:
“Maybe is the factor that in Singapore it was…we had almost two days, between like weigh-in and fight. And this is kind of like big opportunity to the fighter gain extra weight, double weight. Maybe that was the factor because all my strokes were I threw down, I initiated that strokes, I threw her…”
“And this is a weight factor. Like she can use this extra weight to get on top or something like that. Maybe it’s this factor. Maybe two extra days is like not good…especially for me because I am not gaining too much. And the fight day, when you come to the venue…my weight was 132 pounds.”
