Struggles against Lauren Murphy
July 16, 2022
Tate lost to Lauren Murphy via unanimous decision (27-30, 27-30, 28-29) at UFC on ABC 3 on Saturday on Long Island.
It's a highly concerning loss for Tate in more ways than one. Going up against a soon-to-be 39-year-old opponent who is tough as nails but offers little in terms of offensive creativity, Tate struggled almost the entire fight. She appeared hesitant and slow on the feet and wasn't able to land a single takedown. Tate has never been much of a striker, and she simply isn't going to be able to win kickboxing matches at this stage of her career. Tate turns 36 years of age in mid August. She has dropped two of three fights since returning from her 4.5 year hiatus last July, and there's little reason to expect a prolonged winning streak moving forward.
Fight rescheduled
June 27, 2022
Tate is set to take on Lauren Murphy on July 16, at UFC Fight Night in Long Island, Aaron Bronsteter of TSN.ca reports.
The fight scheduled for July 2, at UFC 276, was unable to occur as Murphy contracted COVID-19 prior to the event. The fight has been moved three times for various reasons, but Tate will finally have her chance to take on Murphy on July 16. With the fight just over a week away, Tate sits as approximately a (-160) betting favorite.
No longer fighting Murphy
June 26, 2022
Tate will no longer fight Lauren Murphy and is searching for a replacement at UFC 276 on July 2, MMAJunkie.com reports.
The UFC is looking for a replacement for Lauren Murphy after she was removed from her fight with Tate. The fight had previously been rescheduled twice, and according to a later update from MMAFighting.com, the reason for the most recent cancellation was Murphy testing positive for COVID. Murphy's camp is pushing to rebook this matchup for Long Island on July 16, but neither Tate's camp or the UFC have confirmed those intentions yet. In the meantime, the clock is ticking for Tate to get a new opponent scheduled for this week. She had been listed as roughly a (-165) betting favorite for the proposed matchup with Murphy.
Fight moved again
March 16, 2022
Tate's (nose) fight against Lauren Murphy has now been moved to UFC 276 on July 2, MMA reporter Ariel Helwani reports.
This is the second time this fight has been moved. It was originally booked for April 9 before being moved to May 14. Now it moves back further where Tate will be making her flyweight debut.
Fight bumped to May
January 10, 2022
Tate's fight against Lauren Murphy, originally scheduled for April 9 at UFC 273, has been moved to UFC's Fight Night card on May 14, Mike Heck of MMAFighting.com reports.
Tate will have a few extra weeks to prepare after her upcoming fight was pushed back. She's coming off losses in three of her last four bouts and will try her luck in the flyweight division against Murphy, who is coming off a loss.
