MMAjunkie Radio recently interviewed former UFC women’s bantmaweight champion Miesha Tate, who discussed the current state of women’s MMA in the UFC and the bantamweight division. Below are some highlights.

Miesha Tate on bantamweight: “We are in a bit of a drought in the 135-pound division. … But it opens opportunities for new stars to arise. We’ve just got to realize there’s always ebb and flow. We’re in a little bit of an ebb, but it’ll come back. It’ll come around.”

Her thoughts on a potential Cyborg vs. Amaneda Nunes fight: “I think she possesses a long enough range, enough power and enough speed to pose problems. That would be a really interesting fight. Obviously if she beats Cyborg, she would without question be the greatest of all time. … She’s already kind of in that conversation right now.”
