At the FOX 16 post-fight press conference, White confirmed that Tate would take on the winner of next Saturday's UFC 190 bout between champion Ronda Rousey and challenger Bethe Correia.
"Miesha is such a durable human being," White said. "She has worked her way back to Ronda Rousey."
Tate always seemed to have the edge against Eye on Saturday night’s FOX 16 fight, showing she has big power in both hands; she came close to knocking her opponent out with a massive right punch but eventually won by a unanimous decision.
If the unbeaten Rousey beats Correia next week, which everyone expects, she will be facing Tate for a third time.
In the two previous bouts Rousey beat Tate by armbar making it look easy.
