TATE PREPARES FOR UFC TITLE DEFENSE WITH ROUSEY IN THE SHADOW
By Jesse Dougherty, www.latimes.com
Ever since Miesha Tate won the Ultimate Fighting Championship women's bantamweight belt from Holly Holm in March, she has done a lot of talking.

Interviews and speaking engagements continue to pile up. Her podcast, “The Miesha Tate Show,” now has 17 episodes. After lunch with reporters in West Hollywood, she was heading to appear on Monday night’s episode of “Conan” with Conan O’Brien.

But Tate (18-5) does have a few rules as the attention swirls around her: Nothing can interfere with her focus on her upcoming title defense against Amanda Nunes (12-4) on July 9.
