Can’t even begin to express how shattered my heart is after hearing Miesha announce her retirement. But I am so, so proud. Miesha, you helped bring WMMA to where it is today. You captured Strikeforce and UFC gold with, in my opinion, the best moment in WMMA history.
You had a connection with the fans unlike anything I’ve seen, with your name constantly being chanted in your fights. Not a surprise given that kind and humble soul. That heart of a lion cemented you as my favorite. I’ve never seen such heart in any other fighter.
We love you and will support you in anything you choose to do in the future Miesha. Congratulations on an amazing, history making career. You cemented your legacy and that standing ovation was so well deserved. We’re going to miss you so much.
