Former UFC bantamweight champion Miesha Tate retired from MMA competition at last year’s UFC 205 event. Despite the retirement, the former champion has still very much been involved with the MMA world. She’s been working as a UFC analyst for Fox Sports, competing in submission grappling contests and lots more. She’s also been managing other MMA fighters.
UFC bantamweight Gina Mazany recently spoke to MMAjunkie Radio and discussed what it’s like having Miesha Tate as an MMA manager. It looks like the 28-year-old is pleased with the former champion and feels as though she is doing a good job.
Mazany said “One thing I love about training with Miesha is that her and I, we’ve trained together. We’ve sparred together. We’ve grappled together. We’ve wrestled together. So she knows what I have to offer, what I have to put on the table. I like it when she’s like, ‘You should fight so and so, I think that would be a really great fight for you.’
“Because she’s experienced – not only with the game and probably a lot of the girls that are currently in the 135 division, but also with me.”
Mazany (4-1-0) made her UFC debut at UFC Fight Night 105 in February, losing out to Sara McMann by way of a first-round submission. She is expected to announce her next fight in the very near future.
