Former UFC champ Miesha Tate set for commentary duties at Quintet 3

Miesha Tate’s broadcasting career will take another step forward next month when she steps into a commentary role for the team grappling event Quintet 3.

The promotion today announced former UFC women’s bantamweight champion Tate (18-7 MMA, 5-4 UFC) will join veteran combat sports broadcaster Sean Wheelock in the broadcast booth for the UFC Fight Pass-streamed event on Oct. 5 at Orleans Arena in Las Vegas.

“I’m exciting to be commentating for Quintet 3,” Tate told UFC.com. “I really feel submission grappling is on the rise right now and Quintet’s format of five vs five action is one of the most entertaining formats out there.”

Since retiring from MMA competition in November 2016, Tate has transitioned into the media side of the sport as a radio host for SiriusXM. She’s also appeared as an analyst for UFC coverage on FOX Sports channels. Now she will try her hand at commentary.

The four teams involved at Quintet 3 include Team Sakuraba – where PRIDE favorite Kazushi Sakuraba will be in action alongside Josh Barnett, Marcos Souza and Roberto Souza – as well as Urijah Faber’s Team Alpha Male, Quintet 1 champions Team Polaris and Eddie Bravo’s Team 10th Planet, who claimed victory at Quintet 2.

The following night after Quintet 3, of course, UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov takes on former two-division title holder Conor McGregor in the main event of UFC 229 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
