PRO MMA can exclusively report that Miesha Tate defeated Jessica Bednarek at Freestyle Cage Fighting on Saturday. Tate (5-1) stopped Bednarek (4-2) after landing an over hand right that sent Bednarek to the floor.
Tate followed up with a series of elbows and punches before the referee stepped in and stopped the bout in the first round.
The Tacoma, WA native has won three straight fights since losing to Kaitlin Young in late 2007. Bednarek has dropped two of her last three bouts; however, she had won her first three pro bouts by way of TKO stoppage.
A win for Tate puts her one step closer towards meeting her dream opponent Tara LaRosa. PRO MMA will have an exclusive interview with Tate on next week’s edition of “The Info.”
