Murphy is gonna punish Tate and cripple her self esteem while asserting her own Glory

Tate is smart. Hopefully she can make the weight cut alright. I like how active she is staying post coming out of retirement.  If she picks up a win over Murphy that can leapfrog her right into title contention at flyweight. Valentina has already defeated the other top contenders in that division.

Kinda weird she’s going from a worse fighter (imo) to the no. 1 contender in the division. Tate didnt really look that great against viera

So my prediction here is that Valentina will defend successfully against Talia Santos within the next few months while Meisha will defeat Lauren Murphy here and Valentina vs Tate will happen later in the year.  The only other contender other than Talia Santos/Miesha Tate is Manon Fiorot but Manon needs to defeat a top 10 opponent before she can fight for the belt.  Jessica Eye is nowhere near the top 10 so it seems they are building Manon slowly.

Well yeah but the #3 fighter is still the #3 fighter. Plus she’s never fought in the weight class before (at least from what I can remember) so it seems weird to fight someone coming off a title shot (no matter how one sided the performance was)

Pineda has finished all of his professional wins I believe, so if he wins there's a good chance he finishes Emmers.

Not gonna argue Pinheada but Tate was a former champ and star some people like how she looks and acts.
I used to be a fan she was tenacious far as I'm concerned she won't beat top level fighters.
Age and wear and tear are both factors for Lauren I initially picked her but 38 is the expiry for many fighters.

Petroski is getting a huge step up in competition, but he can still win this nonetheless. Personally I think he has a better chance standing with Maximov than chain wrestling him. Hell, he probably submits him if he gets on top too.

Yeah this is a weird fight cuz skill for skill I think maximov is a better fighter but they’re both going to play into each other’s game and both are equally **** strikers
