Miesha Tate to Fight Mayra Bueno Silva at Bantamweight in June

Miesha Tate, the one-time Bantamweight champion in UFC who boasts a 19-9 record, is diligently gearing up for a comeback inside the octagon. As MMA Fighting sources confirm, Tate will face off against Mayra Bueno Silva, who is presently ranked number 10 among contenders, during the UFC Fight Night event scheduled for June 3, 2023.

Tate’s most recent match took place in July 2022, where she suffered a loss by unanimous decision to Lauren Murphy, a highly-ranked Flyweight contender, during her inaugural foray at 125 pounds. However, it appears that Tate is now set to leave that defeat behind her and display to the world her mettle once more.

At present, the UFC has not made any formal declaration concerning the June 3rd competition, featuring Miesha Tate versus Mayra Bueno Silva, while the event’s specific location and venue have yet to be confirmed. The initial report about the impending bout came from Dama de Ferro MMA.

Tate had come out of retirement in July 2021, after five years, and had won an impressive victory against Marion Reneau via third-round technical knockout. Nevertheless, her success was fleeting, as she faced a huge loss to Ketlen Vieira in the big main event by way of a unanimous decision.

Meanwhile, Bueno Silva holds experience battling it out in the Flyweight division and remains unbeaten in the Bantamweight category. She has emerged victorious in her previous three bouts since her return to Bantamweight, and her most recent triumph was a second-round heel-hook submission against Lina Lansberg in February 2023.
