Tate came out on top twice Friday evening. First, in her opening bout of the Strikeforce Challengers 10 card. Her unanimous decision victory over Finnish fighter Maiju Kujala was less-than decisive, but it brought her to face Hitomi Akano mere hours later, whom she simply overpowered for the better of 3 rounds.

This brings Tate back to a rematch against Sarah Kaufman, the Strikeforce 135-lb women’s title holder. Kaufman beat Tate quite handily over 1 year ago, but it is no secret that Strikeforce would very much like Tate to be the title holder.

Regardless, it should be an extremely exciting bout, which could crown a new queen of female MMA.
