According to a Dec. 29 tweet from Liz Carmouche, many fight fans are wondering who she'll fight next inside the UFC's world-famous Octagon.

"A lot of people are asking what's next for me. @MHHURRICANE & I have our eyes set on 2014," Carmouche tweeted.

Carmouche, 29, gave UFC fans a little hint at who she has her eyes on for her next bout when she retweeted Long Island MMA Examiner Eric Holden, who had called for a fight between her and hard-hitting knockout artist Miesha Tate.

As of Dec. 30, the tweet about a potential fight between Carmouche and Tate was retweeted 24 times, as well as "favorited by" over three dozen people.

Carmouche (9-4) vs Tate (13-5) seems to be the fight that everyone wants to see, especially after the latter was defeated by UFC bantamweight champ Ronda Rousey in the co-main of UFC 168.

Carmouche was expected to face Tate at the UFC on Fox 8 event on July 27 in Seattle, Wash.

However, Tate was pulled from the bout to participate as a coach on TUF 18.

The former Marine instead faced UFC newcomer Jessica Andrade, and won the fight by TKO in the second frame, earning her first UFC win.

"Girl-rilla" then fought Alexis Davis on Nov. 6, and lost via unanimous decision.

As for Tate, she went on to serve as a coach on the UFC's long-running reality show, and she was defeated by Rousey on Dec. 28.

Since Tate and Carmouche are both coming off losses, it makes more sense than ever to match them up.

Both are still legit top 10 contenders in the women's bantamweight division, and whoever wins would solidify their place in the top five in the world at 135 pounds.

Carmouche and Tate both already lost to Rousey, but there's no reason to think they can't work their way back into title contention over the next couple years.
