Don’t call it a comeback.

Miesha Tate made her triumphant return to the octagon on Saturday, competing for the first time since retiring in 2016.

Tate defeated Marion Reneau at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Las Vegas, knocking Reneau out in the third round.

After the fight, Tate made it clear her return to the sport would be permanent.

“I’m not here just for a fight. I am here for a belt,” said Tate, referencing the bantamweight belt.

Saturday night’s victory marks Tate’s first win since March 2016.
