Most viewers watching Cat Zingano finish Miesha Tate saw little to doubt in the referee’s stoppage of the fight. Tate maybe could have been given a little bit longer to prove she was still in the fight, but following successive knees and an elbow that appeared to send her towards the canvas, most wouldn’t argue the stoppage.
Miesha Tate would, however, beg to differ.
“I didn’t feel like I was out of the fight,” she said at the post-fight press conference, obviously frustrated by the stoppage.
“I got from the bottom up, got kneed a few times on the way, tried to shoot another shot, and the fight got stopped.”
