While Tate certainly looks really fit and ready to take on any challenge. Most fans believe that the problem Tate might face will be the lack of fight practice.

He said, “I told her not to do this. Right before her last fight, she got her nose fixed because she had some damage to her nose. And she got her nose fixed. I told her, Don’t do it, I’ll fix your nose when you’re done. When you’re done, I’ll fix your nose.”

“She did it, and if you watch the Amanda Nunes fight, she gets hit by Amanda Nunes in the nose and she didn’t like it. She and I haven’t talked about this, but a big mistake. Over the last five years, she’s obviously given her nose plenty of time to heal. She’s had some kids, built a family, got her nose straight, so I’m happy for her.”
