Miesha Tate may be recently retired from mixed martial arts, but she’s keeping her options open as far as other potential future career moves. The 30-year-old former UFC women’s bantamweight champion announced she was done with cage fighting last November, and has since been doing a little bit of submission grappling and a lot of UFC analyst work. But would she ever consider a foray into professional wrestling? Perhaps even in WWE?
A fan asked her that very question at a fan Q&A event in London and Miesha was more than down with the idea.
“I would love to,” Tate said. “It would be fun. I would love to. I’m open to all kinds of things like that. It would be a lot of fun.”
Of course, we’re probably talking about a one off special appearance like her nemesis Ronda Rousey had at WrestleMania 31. We can’t imagine Miesha is looking to spend her post-UFC retirement days literally learning the ropes in pro wrestling and getting to a place where she could compete in legit matches. But that being said, any chance to get more MMA fighters into pro wrestling is okay by me … it’s certainly an improvement over MMA fighters going into boxing.
