After successfully making weight for the matchup at the UFC Apex, Tate (19-7 MMA, 6-4 UFC) and Vieira (11-2 MMA, 5-2 UFC) stared each other down for the first time. They fist-bumped and respectfully looked each other in the eyes up close.
Tate, 35, will look for her second consecutive win in her return from a nearly five-year retirement after she beat Marion Reneau in July. Vieira, 30, aims to rebound from a loss to Yana Kunitskaya in her most recent bout this past February.
