Meesha Tate suffers multiple nose fractures in loss to Vieira, faces lengthy UFC medical suspension


One of the headliners of UFC Vegas 43 on Saturday night is facing an extended period from the Octagon.

Meisha Tate has suffered multiple nose fractures in the unanimous decision defeat of Katelyn Vieira. Tate needs clearance from an ear, nose, and throat (ENT) physician to avoid a possible six-month suspension handed down Tuesday by the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC). If she is not cleared, the ‘cupcake’ will be on the sideline until May next year.

Tate was given a 180-day period: five other fighters: Joanne Wood, Adrian Yanez, Rafa Garcia, Lupita Godinz and Cody Durden.
