Photo: ‘I’m shrinking’ - Miesha Tate shares weight cut progress ahead of flyweight debut

Miesha Tate is on target for her debut in a new weight class.

Tate has decided to move from bantamweight to flyweight, and the former UFC champion shared her progress ahead of her upcoming fight against Lauren Murphy at UFC 276 in July.

“I’m shrinking…oddly enough I knew making flyweight (125 lbs) was going to require my body to change, but yet going through the process has still be [sic] surprising at every turn,” wrote Tate on her official Facebook page.

Tate returned to competition after retiring over five years ago and defeated Marion Reneau via third-round technical knockout at UFC Vegas 31 this past July.
