Miesha Tate (19-7 MMA, 6-4 UFC) won the Performance of the Night. She made her return from a retirement of nearly five years and sent Marion Reneau (9-8-1 MMA, 5-7-1 UFC) into her own retirement. Tate pounded out Reneau in the third round for a big win in her comeback fight.
Tate decided to strike with her for the first few minutes then went in for a takedown, but Reneau defended and they clinched up against the fence.
Tate was able to tag her a few times and with a minute to go in the opening round, they had a wild exchange before Tate scored a takedown.
