Miesha Tate will come out of retirement on July 17th, fighting Marion Reneau at a UFC event. As first reported by Brett Okamoto of ESPN, the fight will be Tate’s first in over four years.
The fight joins a UFC lineup that does not have a confirmed location at the moment.
Tate’s last fight dates back to November of 2016, where she fought Raquel Pennington at UFC’s first event in the state of New York. Before then, her previous loss saw her drop her UFC Bantamweight Championship to Amanda Nunes.
Reneau will look to earn her first win in five fights. She has been on the losing end of decisions in her last four bouts, with her last victory dating all the way back to 2018.
Reneau competed on a UFC card earlier in the month, losing to Macy Chiasson.
The fight between Tate and Reneau is the first to be announced for a July 17th UFC card.
