UFC 205 will end with Conor McGregor’s attempt to capture a second UFC title, but the historic show’s main card will kick off with a bantamweight clash between former champion Miesha Tate, and burgeoning upstart Raquel Pennington.
The bout marks Tate’s return to action after being usurped as the division’s champion. She’ll hope to put the one-sided thrashing behind her and get back to turning in the kind of performance that allowed her to win five straight prior to the recent defeat.
Pennington enters having won three consecutive matches, and four of her last five. Her upcoming bout with Tate, however, represents both the greatest challenge and opportunity of her professional life.
As we continue to count down the days until UFC 205, let’s examine the matchup between these two bantamweights and find out who holds an edge where, and which fighter is likely to emerge victorious.
