Despite announcing her retirement from MMA just last month at UFC 205 at Madison Square Garden in New York City, New York. Former UFC bantamweight Miesha ‘Cupcake’ Tate returns to combat sports action when she faces Jessica ‘Evil’ Eye tonight at Submission Underground 2.
Miesha Tate and Jessica Eye will face off in a co-main event for the second time, but this time there will be no punching or kicking involved. Tate and Eye are facing off in a submission-only grappling bout under modified Eddie Bravo International rules and the event will stream live on FloGrappling.com.
