Tacoma, WA (June 26, 2012) - Former CageSport standout and Female Fighter of the Year Miesha "Takedown" Tate will appear at "CageSport XX" as a special cageside guest Saturday, July 14 at the Emerald Queen Casino in her hometown of Tacoma, WA.
A universally recognized top ten pound-for-pound fighter, Tate won both of her bouts under the CageSport banner by knockout and is amongst the most famous female martial artists in the world. In her most recent match Tate, 12-3, battled Rhonda Rousey in the main event of a Showtime card. Although she came up short against the unbeaten submission master, Tate earned worldwide recognition as the bout was one of the most viewed in Strikeforce history.
"Miesha is one of the most popular athletes in the area and an inspiration to many male and female MMA fighters," said Brian Halquist, CEO of Halquist Productions and the creator of CageSport MMA. "I'm glad to have her back and she's somebody I consider a dear friend."
Tate will be available to all ticketholders for a meet and greet, photo ops and autographs throughout the evening.
The card is topped by a bout between Sterling Ford and James Marohl as well as a matchup between female superstars "Slick" Sally Krumdiak and "Little" Patricia Vidonic.
Tickets starting at $35 can be purchased on ticketmaster.com or at the Emerald Queen box office.
Additional bouts will be announced shortly.
