Last week’s UFC On FOX event featured Elizabeth Phillips experiencing somewhat of a wardrobe malfunction during her fight with Jessamyn Duke. Top ranked contender Miesha Tate said she took extra precautions to prevent the same thing from happening to her.
“I doubled up after I saw that,” Tate said to MMAJunkie Radio. “I didn’t see it, but I heard about it.”
With the new Reebok fighter kit, UFC fighters have specific gear to wear during their fights, however as Tate explains, she had to partially disregard that to make sure she didn’t suffer any wardrobe malfunctions of her own.
“I was like, ‘I’m putting on another sports bra, and I don’t care.’ It was a Reebok (sports bra), but it wasn’t part of the uniform,” said Tate. “I was like, ‘I don’t care. I’m putting it on. You can’t make me go out there after seeing that fight, with just one on.’ I doubled up.”
