The undefeated Japanese bantamweight Rin Nakai looks to continue her run as she takes on Miesha Tate in her home country.
Fox Sports reported the planned bout for the UFC’s September 24 show in Tokyo, Japan.
Nakai (16-0-1) is the Pancarse bantamweight champion, having recently defeating American Tara LaRosa, Brenda Gonzales, and Sarah D’Alelio. She has six submissions to her credit, but has yet to fight outside her native country.
Tate (14-5) is coming off an unanimous decision win over Liz Carmouche. After losing twice to Ronda Rousey and once to Cat Zingano, Tate is looking to get her career back in order.
The bout will most likely stream on UFC Fight Pass.
