Miesha “Cupcake” Tate capped off a two-year journey back to UFC title contention with a sensational win tonight at UFC 196: “McGregor vs Diaz” in Las Vegas, Nevada. Tate choked out Holly “The Preacher’s Daughter” Holm in round five to become the new UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion.

Tonight’s victory was a long time coming for former Strikeforce titleholder Tate, who was denied the UFC championship when she was defeated by “Rowdy” Ronda Rousey at UFC 168. Also on the UFC 196 card, Amanda “Lioness” Nunes earned a key win over Valentina “Bullet” Shevchenko.
