Starting on Monday, September 13th, former UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion Miesha Tate is stepping out of the octagon and onto the airwaves with veteran media personality Renee Paquette as they team up to host an exclusive new show on SiriusXM Fight Nation (Ch. 156), SiriusXM’s dedicated combat sports channel.
Throwing Down with Renee and Miesha will air live every Monday from 2 pm to 5 pm ET. Tate and Paquette will cover the latest news and events from the worlds of MMA and pro wrestling, as well as their passions and interests away from the octagons and rings.
“I couldn’t be more excited for the launch of Throwing Down with Renee and Miesha,” Tate said. “This show is going to be unlike any other in the history of SiriusXM, so buckle up and enjoy the ride!”
“I am beyond excited to be working alongside a badass like Miesha. Two women getting to talk shop in the fight space is going to be so much fun. We need more female voices in the combat sports world, and I’m really looking forward to carving our own path. I can’t wait to join the SiriusXM team,” Paquette said.

Inside the octagon, Tate won the UFC Women’s Bantamweight title on March 5, 2016 (UFC 196) when she defeated Holly Holm by technical submission in the fifth round.

Prior to her mixed martial arts career, Tate won the state championship as a high school wrestler in Washington and won the silver medal in the 2008 FILA Grappling World Championships.
