When the UFC first announced that Ronda Rousey was joining the promotion and women would finally have the chance to compete inside the Octagon, Miesha Tate was cautiously optimistic about the future.
 
Throughout her career, Tate heard over and over again the objections from UFC president Dana White on how he would never have women’s mixed martial arts in his promotion. So when the UFC changed course, Tate was excited about the future but also wondered just how much push the organization would put behind the women.
