UFC Miesha Tate

Twelve days ago, UFC president Dana White announced a top contender bantamweight brawl between Miesha Tate (pictured) and Jessica Eye for a June event.

Fast forward to Wednesday and Tate had yet to sign the bout agreement.

Eye was quick to call “Cupcake” out on it.

“@mieshatate why haven’t you signed the contract !!! What are you waiting for? WE ARE READY,” Eye probed on Twitter.

Tate decided to take advantage of today’s date and play a prank on the MMA world.

“@jessicaevileye bc I got injured, I cant take the fight, sorry Jess I was super excited about it. Maybe a later date,” Tate responded.

Three hours later Tate let everyone in on her April Fools’ joke.

“You guys do know its April 1st right?” Tate asked.

Funny, not funny…

No word if Tate has signed her bout agreement yet.

The victor of the scrap will advance to face the winner of August’s title tilt between champion Ronda Rousey and Bethe Correia.
