ONE Championship continues to make waves in the global mixed martial arts industry.
However, the 32-year-old will play a different role this time around. Tate has been named as the vice president of the fight league, Thursday.
“It is both an honor and a privilege to announce that women’s mixed martial arts world champion Miesha Tate will be joining ONE Championship as Vice President. Miesha has been an incredible pioneer for the sport, and has been an inspiration for many young men and women,” said CEO of ONE Championship Chatri Sityodtong.
Though being a former world champion definitely boosted her resume, it was her character that led to the signing.
“What impresses me most about Miesha is her humility, compassion, honor, and respect. Throughout her career, Miesha has always exemplified the deep-rooted martial arts values of integrity, humility, honor, respect, courage, discipline, and compassion,” added Sityodtong.
“Not only is she a good friend, but I am proud to have her represent ONE Championship on a global scale. I look forward to welcoming Miesha to her new home in Singapore!”
Tate, who owns an 18-7 fight record, can’t wait to put on high heels instead of rubber shoes on a daily basis.
“I am thrilled to join ONE Championship as a Vice President. I truly believe in its mission of unleashing real-life superheroes who ignite the world with hope, strength, dreams, and inspiration.
“I’m honored to bring my experience as a World Champion and to help inspire the next generation of athletes. And of course, I am excited to relocate to my new home, Singapore, and travel throughout Asia!” she said.
