Miesha Tate vs Liz Carmouche booked for UFC on FOX 11

According to a Jan. 13 post from MMA Weekly, Washington-based wrestling standout Miesha Tate (13-5) has been booked to fight perennial bantamweight contender Liz Carmouche (9-4).

Tate will duke it out with Carmouche on Apr. 19 at the Amway Center in Orlando, Fla., on what will likely be the main card of UFC on FOX 11.

Tate and Carmouche were originally supposed to fight each other in July of last year on a UFC on FOX card in Seattle, Wash., but the bout was scrapped when "Cupcake" got bumped into a coaching spot on TUF 18.

Carmouche would end up taking a fight against Jessica Andrade, which she won.

However, she suffered a setback with a defeat at the hands of Alexis Davis at the UFC Fight for the Troops event held late last year in Kentucky.

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.

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.

Fabricio Werdum (17-5-1) vs Travis Browne (16-1-1) has also been added to the UFC on FOX 11 card.
