Fans were a bit surprised to hear that Miesha Tate was returning to the Octagon after five years of retirement. Now she explains that decision, saying that she wants one more chance to become UFC champion again. When Tate decided to hang up the gloves, she was riding a two fight losing streak. However she was just a single bout removed from being the champion, so it seemed to come out of nowhere. Nevertheless, she decided to retire, even if her role working for ONE Championship kept her active in the sport. Fast forward five years, and after a bit of hinting at a comeback, she announced that she would be returning to take on Marion Reneau. https:\/\/www.instagram.com\/p\/CLwvSf7h1Ni\/ Previewing Marion Reneau Fight Of course, fans are excited to see Miesha Tate fight anyone again, but the Marion Reneau fight in particular seemed to come out of nowhere. After all, Reneau said that she is retiring with this fight, after a tough four-fight losing streak. Speaking in a recent interview, Miesha explained that she accepted this fight just because it is what the UFC offered. That said, she does have a lot of respect for Marion, and is honored to be her retirement fight. \u201cIt was what the UFC said was available and I thought, \u2018That\u2019s fine with me. It\u2019s been four years since I\u2019ve fought. I think that Marion Reneau, she\u2019s solid in every area. She has that triangle choke of Sara McMann. She\u2019s dangerous from the bottom, she can strike well and it\u2019s her retirement fight. So I guess when they asked her about it, she was very excited," Tate said (h\/t MMAFighting). \u201cI think Marion Reneau is great and when you know it\u2019s your last fight, there\u2019s going to be a lot of fire in there, a lot of passion because she\u2019s obviously gonna want to go out on a win. She\u2019s gonna put everything she has left in the gas tank because she\u2019s not saving herself for the next fight. "This is the tip of the hat, this is the final countdown for her, so I know she\u2019s really gonna bring it, and for me I\u2019ve got a lot to prove. I\u2019ve got to shake of the five years and go out there and have a great performance and win and set off this second part of my career.\u201d https:\/\/www.instagram.com\/p\/CMd1LZwBOGQ\/ Miesha Tate Wants Amanda Nunes Rematch When Miesha Tate lost her bantamweight title, it was by brutal first round submission. Since then, Nunes has reigned over the 135lb division, establishing a legacy as the greatest women's fighter of all time. Despite Amanda's continued reign, Miesha feels like she has figured out what it takes to beat Nunes in a rematch. So it is her hope that she will be able to put together enough wins for a title shot, and eventually become UFC champion again. \u201cI\u2019ve got six fights on the contract, I\u2019ve got two years that I know for sure I want to dedicate to this sport. But look, anything can happen off of one fight," Tate said. "I\u2019ll be honest, I really don\u2019t know exactly what to expect. That\u2019s what\u2019s so exciting for me... But I can tell you, for the next two years, that\u2019s my plan, to be heavily involved in the sport. Obviously, I want to become a champion again... \u201cI\u2019d love to run that one back. I would love to fight (Amanda Nunes) again because I know I have the style to beat her. I\u2019m not at all gonna take anything away from her. She\u2019s a scary woman and she hits like a man. I know that. I\u2019ve been in there with her and I\u2019ve seen what she\u2019s done since then. But I know I have the style to beat her.\u201d https:\/\/twitter.com\/MMAonSiriusXM\/status\/1374890569097433091?s20 Do you think Miesha Tate will be able to recapture the UFC bantamweight title?
