Tate, a native of Tacoma, Washington, started her mixed martial arts career in November 2007.

She became known as one of the best women’s athletes in the sport’s history thanks to two reigns as a world champion.

The American captured the Strikeforce Women’s Bantamweight Championship in July 2011 and the UFC Bantamweight Title in March 2016.

“Cupcake” compiled an overall record of 18-7 before she retired from active competition in November 2016. 

Tate is the latest addition to ONE Championship. In recent weeks, the organization has added Eddie “The Underground King” Alvarez, Demetrious “Mighty Mouse” Johnson, Nieky Holzken, and Muangthai P.K.Saenchaimuaythaigym to its roster.

Also, the women’s mixed martial arts pioneer joins Rich Franklin, Bashir Ahmad, and Ann Osman as former athletes who have transitioned to an executive role.
