Miesha Tate Moving To Flyweight, UFC Fight Set For May

Miesha Tate's move to the UFC's flyweight division has been pushed back from April to May, as she'll face Lauren Murphy.

Former champion Miesha Tate will give flyweight a go.

Tate will meet Lauren Murphy at a planned UFC event in May. Exact details for the card have yet to be announced. 

The two were scheduled to meet at UFC 273 in April. However, the fight was forced to be canceled due to a scheduling conflict, according to MMA Fighting.

Tate, who previously held the bantamweight title, returned from retirement last year. She scored a decision victory over Marion Reneau.

In November, though, Tate dropped a decision to Ketlen Vieira in a main event fight. 

Along with being a mother, Tate has also expanded her career in the media world. She co-hosts a podcast on SiriusXM with Renee Paquette where they discuss combat sports, pro wrestling and more. 

Murphy has been on a roll, winning five of her last six. The lone loss during that run came at the hands of UFC flyweight champion Valentina Shevchenko.
