Today’s UFC Long Island event featured a key women’s flyweight contest between former bantamweight champion Miesha Tate and Lauren Murphy.


Tate (19-9 MMA) made the decision to make the drop down to flyweight following her unanimous decision loss to Ketlen Vieira in November of 2021. That loss was preceded by a TKO victory over fellow veteran Marion Reneau in her return to the Octagon.

Meanwhile, Lauren Murphy (16-5 MMA) was returning to action for the first time since suffering a TKO loss to reigning flyweight queen Valentina Shevchenko. That loss had snapped a five-fight winning streak for the woman known as “Lucky”.

Today’s ‘Tate vs. Murphy’ contest resulted in a unanimous decision victory for ‘Lucky’. Lauren was able to get the better of Tate on frequent occasion in the standup and did some solid work in the clinch. After fifteen minutes of action the fight went to the judges scorecards for decision.
