Tate had trouble with Vieira's superior height and reach all fight, frequently having to leap forward to throw her strikes. Though she landed some, Vieira punished her with hard counter shots. Ignoring her corner's advice to bring the fight to Tate, Vieira allowed the former title holder to come forward throughout. But it was Vieira who consistently landed the more damaging blows. She hit Tate with a big knee to the body in the final round and followed up with a right hand that had blood gushing from Tate's nose. By the end of the fight Tate's face was a crimson mask as Vieira took the unanimous decision.
