Miesha Tate Just Makes Early Weigh-In Deadline For UFC 200

As if UFC 200 hasn’t had enough drama already.

With the seconds ticking down, reigning UFC female bantamweight champion Miesha Tate stepped on the scale Friday morning in Las Vegas for the official weigh-ins.

And successfully came in a half-pound under the 135-pound limit.

Tate just made the 10 a.m. PT cutoff for the weigh-ins, which will also air live later today on MMA News. She is set to face Amanda Nunes for the belt Saturday night in the new main event of the historic card.
