Joe Rogan was involved in an awkward incident involving Miesha Tate at the UFC 200 weigh-ins. While the former women's bantamweight champion got on the scale, the cameras caught the UFC commentator struggling to keep his eyes off the fighter.

The duo later enjoyed a light-hearted exchange on Twitter, discussing the clearly embarrassing incident. In a tweet, Miesha Tate stated that the UFC commentator "exudes self-control."

Rogan, meanwhile, expressed that he was planning to take extra care not to get caught staring at Tate again:

"I'm thinking, 'DO NOT get caught on camera staring at her butt... AGAIN.'"

Miesha Tate lost her UFC 200 appearance against Amanda Nunes, thereby failing to clock in even a single title defense. Tate also lost her subsequent fight against Raquel Pennington at UFC 205. After the loss, the former champion decided to take a hiatus from the sport.

Tate, however, returned to mixed martial arts in 2021 in a winning performance against Marion Reneau at UFC on ESPN 26. The bout also marked the 35-year-old's first TKO victory since 2009.


Miesha Tate's latest fight against Lauren Murphy

Former women's bantamweight champion Miesha Tate lost her flyweight debut against No.3-ranked contender Lauren Murphy at UFC on ABC 3. Murphy won the three-rounder via unanimous decision.

While two of the three judges scored all rounds 10-9 for Murphy, Derek Cleary scored the third round 10-9 favoring Tate.

The fight marks the former champion's second consecutive loss since her 2021 TKO win against Reneau. The 35-year-old succumbed to a unanimous decision loss against Ketlen Vieira in her previous fight at UFC Fight Night 198.

Former flyweight title challenger Lauren Murphy, in her post-fight interview with Megan Olivi, called for a No.1 contender fight against the winner of Jessica Andrade vs. Manon Fiorot:

"I want to show that I have grown so much from that loss [against Valentina Shevchenko] that I'd be worthy to not only fight a No.1 contendership fight again but to dominate a No.1 contendership fight... Those girls are tough man. Fiorot is tough, Jessica Andrade is tough... and I think a win over either one of them would be proof for everybody, but mostly for me that I would be ready to challenge for the championship again."
