Murphy crushed previous UFC ladies' bantamweight champion Miesha Tate in a three-round choice at UFC Fight Night in Long Island on Saturday.
Murphy and Tate battled for 15 hard minutes to open Saturday's principal card. Their results on the feet were moderately close
and their individual wrestling abilities invalidated one another. It was Murphy's capacity to harm Tate that isolated them on the scorecards
Murphy's hit had Tate's nose dribbling with blood in Round 1 and spouting in Round 2. Murphy likewise seemed to break Tate's orbital bone as "Cupcake"
managed terrible enlarging and a cut under her right eye. "It'll take more than one little ass kicking to get me far from the title," Murphy told
UFC pundit Daniel Cormier during a post-battle interview. "It went better compared to we rehearsed.
We worked thus, so hard for this and I changed such a great amount about my camp and individuals around me,
yet for the most part about the way that I think and my opinion on myself. When that changed, so did everything around me."
