One of the fastest rising stars in women’s mixed martial arts, Miesha Tate, will return to action on Nov. 29 as she stays in her hometown of Tacoma, Wash. to take on pro boxer turned MMA fighter Theresa Doerksen.
Tate made a big impression on many MMA fans with her dominant performance over Elaina Maxwell back in June on the Strikeforce: Melendez vs. Thomson card.
Since that time, she was expecting to return to Strikeforce, possibly on the last Playboy Mansion show, Strikeforce at the Mansion 2, but the promotion decided against her appearance on the card.
“I'm not quite sure what to make of that whole deal,” Tate told MMAWeekly.com. “At first they seemed all about me, but then I was turned down on the Playboy show because they decided they didn't want any female bouts and I haven't heard anything since so I'm not waiting around on them.”
