Meisha Tate: I’m happy to represent women’s MMA, and the rest, I’ll leave up to you guys
The recently proclaimed women's bantamweight champion, Meisha Tate, spoke regarding people's decision if she's the new face of women's MMA.
The co-event of the “Strikeforce and M-1 Global: Fedor vs. Henderson” held last Saturday seems to damage the career of the unbeatable Marloes Coenen, as Meisha Tate attained the Strikeforce bantamweight title by finishing her through an arm-triangle choke technique.
Though the new 135lb Strikeforce champion is getting much excitement from her new title belt, Meisha Tate pointed out that she is still keeping her feet on the ground and would not get too affected with the fame she’s entering right now.
She also stated that it is up for the fans and media if they’re likely to call her as the ‘new face of women’s MMA’. “I’ll let the fans decide that,” Meisha Tate said. “I just know that I just became the new 135-pound world champion, and I’m happy with that. I’m happy to represent women’s MMA, and the rest, I’ll leave up to you guys.”
Meanwhile, she affirmed that she is quite ready to meet the expectations of the public as the new women’s MMA champion, pushing Cris Cyborg and Gina Carano out of the scene.
