The former UFC women’s Bantamweight champion, Miesha Tate entered the top 10 UFC women’s Bantamweight rankings with a win against Marion Reneau in her last fight. With this fight, Tate made her comeback inside the Octagon almost after five years and now she is hoping for an immediate title shot.

Miesha Tate is one of the biggest stars in the UFC women’s division and now she believes her career is on the right track for one more title shot. In her latest interview with ESPN, Tate says, “Everything is going to go according to what I feel is right,”

“I get to be the boss of my career and I feel like the ball is in my court. I feel like it’s the more respectful way – to climb the rankings in the division – and I feel like it’s a proper progression and that’s exactly what I want out of my career.”

“Sometimes you only get one shot. When I take that shot at Amanda, it will be the perfect timing. I’ll have the perfect aim. I will be the sniper to take her out. But I’m not gonna jump the gun. I’m going to build my way into it and make sure I’m allowing my body the time to evolve, my mind, everything to be in that perfect form so that when I get to that title shot, I’ll be ready.” {H/t MMA Fighting}

Amanda Nunes and Miesha Tate faced each other at the main event of UFC 200, where Nunes demolished her within three minutes of the very first round. Tate now wants to avenge her loss and face Nunes once again with a dominant win against Marion Reneau at UFC Vegas 43.

Tate continued, “I think a dominant win over her for sure puts me in the top five and I understand it could definitely put me in a number one contender conversation, I think it depends on the performance. With a really dominant win, it could make me the next number one contender, because the division has been run by Amanda for so long, since I left.”

“She’s the one that took the belt from me and she’s fought everyone else that has a strong case right now. I’d be on a two-fight win streak…. I’m not really sure who has a stronger case if I get a good solid win this coming weekend over Ketlen.” {H/t MMA Fighting}
