Ex-UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion Miesha Tate joins Edith Labelle as the latest addition to the CW89 fan meet and greet in Antwerp, Belgium.
It’s not everyday you get to meet a UFC World Champion, let alone one of the most recognised faces in the sport of MMA. On November 25th, fans attending the biggest MMA event in Belgian history at the Lotto Arena will have the chance to meet Miesha Tate on the night as well as ex-UFC and Cage Warriors Octagon girl Edith Labelle.
After a stellar career including one of the greatest comeback victories in MMA history against Holly Holm at UFC 196, Tate is widely regarded as one of the best female fighters to ever step into the octagon. She’s fought on some of the biggest UFC events of the last decade, including the famed UFC 200 at the T-Mobile Arena.
After conquering the sport, Tate has moved into the boardroom as an MMA manger but still trains relentlessly with Cindy Dandois of Perfect Team MMA in Belgium. Cindy faces England’s Kerry Hughes in what looks to be one of the most exciting fights of the night, and Miesha is attending to both support her teammate and meet the fans that have supported her through her UFC career.
The meet and greet will take place during Cage Warriors 89, the biggest MMA event ever to be held in Belgium. Welterweight Champion Karl Amoussou will face ex-UFC fighter Dominique Steele for the belt, and the vacant Heavyweight Title is on the line when the Italian Mauro Cerilli faces Dutchman Nills Van Noord. These two title fights top a massive card, when Belgium’s Donovan Desmae clashes with submission specialist Aiden Lee, and Ayton de Paepe faces Welsh super-prospect Jack Shore.
