When examining the future of women’s Mixed Martial Arts it is impossible to exclude Miesha Tate from the conversation. Barely a week removed from her 23rd birthday, she currently sports a record of 6-2 with both losses coming in less-than ideal situations.

Tate recently sat down with FiveOuncesOfPain.com to discuss, amongst other things, her beginnings in Mixed Martial Arts, how she feels she’s evolved as a fighter, where she sees herself going in the sport, who she might like to step into the cage with, her opinion on five-minute rounds, and a hobby or two that could surprise fans who have her pegged as being little more than a girl who likes to beat people up.
