Miesha Tate gets nose busted up in UFC 200 massacre
Miesha Tate wasn’t merely beaten by Amanda Nunes at UFC 200 in Las Vegas on Saturday night. She was massacred.
Tate lost to Nunes via submission at 3:16 of the first round of their fight, but the bout could have easily ended earlier due to punches.
Nunes absolutely rocked Tate with a couple of direct shots to the face, including one punch that busted up Miesha’s nose. Tate began to bleed and could hardly protect herself, but she was able to continue fighting. Her efforts to defend herself didn’t last long as she ended up on the ground and promptly submitted.
Nunes landed 40 strikes in the fight compared to just 3 for Tate.
Afterwards, Miesha was composed enough to conduct an interview, but her nose looked completely smashed.

Hopefully we can now ignore talks about a third Tate-Rousey fight because Miesha doesn’t deserve it after this (you can also question whether she ever deserved a third following two previous losses to Ronda). Perhaps this was poetic justice as Tate had been trash talking Rousey in recent interviews, almost as if she were overlooking Nunes.
