Miesha Tate set to defend title against Nunes at UFC 200

<p>Miesha Tate is scheduled to make her first title defense against Amanda Nunes at UFC 200 in July, <a href="http://www.ufc.com/news/miesha-tate-makes-first-title-defense-at-UFC-200-against-amanda-nunes">the UFC announced Wednesday night.</a></p> <p>Tate (18-5) won the bantamweight title by handing Holly Holm her first professional MMA loss as an underdog back in March. &lsquo;Cupcake&rsquo; finished the fight with a rear-naked choke, putting Holm to sleep, midway through the fifth round of a fight that she was losing on the scorecards. The victory marked Tate&rsquo;s fifth straight win and her first finish since 2012.</p> <p>On the same night, Nunes (12-4) scored a unanimous decision over #11 ranked Valentina Shevchenko. The win gave her a 5-1 UFC record and elevated her to #4 on the official UFC rankings. Nunes has won three in a row with two of the three wins being finishes. Last August, &lsquo;The Lioness&rsquo; shocked fans with a first round finish over Olympic silver-medalist Sarah McMann, knocking her down early in the fight and then quickly taking her back to win with a rear-naked choke.</p> <p>UFC 200 will take place on July 9 during International Fight Week. The card will be headlined by a rematch between featherweight champion Conor McGregor and lightweight contender Nate Diaz. The event will be preceded by two others that same week.</p>
