Liz Carmouche Lost UFC Fight to Miesha Tate

It was a fight to the finish as Miesha Tate and Liz Carmouche engaged in a series of punches, kicks and grappling so as to get a chance to win the UFC Bantamweight title. 

Each one wanted to end up being the titleholder. And it could only be one or the other. The ferocity of the tussle ended in Miesha Tate winning by a single point. In fact, it almost caught her by surprise. 

And UFC president Dana White also felt that Liz Carmouche can win the fight. During the post-fight press conference, White said, “I thought Liz won rounds one and two, and I thought Miesha won the third round. But it’s one of those things where if you look at the second round, Liz didn’t really do any damage. She took her down, she held her. If you give Miesha points for submission attempts, it’s not crazy to say that Miesha won the fight either.”

“If you want to guarantee yourself a victory, take the judges out of it – finish fights. I’m sure other people thought Liz won the fight too, but if you look at what Liz did, just laid on her and didn’t do any damage, it’s not crazy to say that you could give the second round to Miesha.”

Miesha Tate had not thought that she would snatch victory from the jaws of defeat. But this is exactly what happened. And Carmouche was left in a state of desolation since she had lost by such a narrow margin. 

“No I wasn’t confident I won it, to be perfectly honest,” said Tate. “I really thought that… I honestly actually thought that Liz probably won the fight, because she had more riding time. But I haven’t watched the fight. That’s just what was going through my mind.”

The killer moves and fight sequences proceeded at breakneck speed at Orlando’s Amway Center. It was only towards the later rounds when Tate started recovering her strength and fought back to defend her title. 

“The reason I won the round (2) the round was just based on damage. That’s all I can really say — I haven’t watched the fight,” said Tate.

Miesha is a fine specimen as a fighter and a pugilist of the highest order to boot. She was saving her footwork tactics and strategic shots for a time when Carmouche had literally gone bankrupt on the energy front. And this policy of “save the best for last” worked marvelously. 

While Carmouche resisted valiantly, she ultimately had to give in to her opponent’s aggressive attitude and style of attacking at the vulnerable points. 

Carmouche further incurred a wrist injury for which she has been given time off. She will be convalescing till her wrist bone is back in shape. Miesha Tate is the #3 fighter in the field right now thanks to this victory. As for Carmouche, she has been relegated to the #9 position. 

Miesha Tate has lost out to two fighters previously. And they are the formidable Ronda Rousey and the invincible Cat Zingano. UFC fights are pretty brutal business and sometimes things can get ugly when some fighter uses a signature move that is devastating.
