Miesha Tate vs. Julie Kedzie Set for August 18

| by

Former Strikeforce women's bantamweight champion Miesha Tate will compete on the same card as the female who claimed the belt from her, as Tate returns to action August 18 against Julie Kedzie.

The fight, which is expected to be part of the main card, will take place at Strikeforce: Rousey vs. Kaufman. In the main event, Ronda Rousey is set to defend her title against Sarah Kaufman.

Tate (12-3) suffered a submission defeat to Rousey earlier this year. She has been recovering from the damage done by the former Olympian.

Kedzie (16-9) lost to Alexis Davis in her one Strikeforce appearance since joining the promotion. An injury kept her out of a planned September card from last year.
