Reneau said this to cbssports.com about her upcoming fight against Tate, “I knew that my last fight would be when I was 43 or 44 years old. Granted, I feel amazing. I feel the best I've ever felt. But there just comes a time when I feel it's time to move on and in my mind, I always knew I would finish out my contract and that was going to be it. I can't think of a better situation, just because I like to say I grew up watching Miesha. She was one of my first idols when I started fighting. I used to dream about fighting her, and now it's coming to pass in what happens to be my last hoorah.”

What if I don’t need that to be better? What if I don’t have to get through all these big moments of adversity before the fight? What if I just had the fight? What if? ‘Marion Reneau is going to be the first woman to find out. She’ll be the first woman to really fight the Miesha Tate that I believe I could have been all along, but it’s better late than never. I’m not out of this game, so I’m happy for the comeback.”
