Miesha Tate is just a couple of weeks away from her return to the octagon.

The former UFC and Strikeforce bantamweight champion and ONE Championship vice president is set to return to competition when she fights Marion Reneau on July 17, and ahead of her comeback fight Tate is documenting the preparation for her first fight in almost five years.

Tate, 34, retired from competition in 2016 following a unanimous decision loss to Raquel Pennington at UFC 205 at Madison Square Garden in New York, then went on to work for ONE in an executive position. She also became a mother, most recently giving birth to her second child in June of last year.

This past March, Tate announced that she would fight again for the UFC.

Watch the first two episodes of Tate’s comeback series below:

Tate initially hung up the gloves with an 18-7 pro record after making her debut in 2007. She won a Strikeforce championship in 2011 and a UFC championship in 2016, while rattling off wins over the likes of Holly Holm, Sara McMann, Liz Carmouche, and Marloes Coenen, while also engaging in one of MMA’s most heated rivalries against Ronda Rousey.
