Former Strikeforce women’s champion and one-time UFC title contender Miesha Tate has signed on with KHI Management, an athlete-representation company owned by NASCAR Sprint Cup driver Kevin Harvick.

Tate is set to return to action next month at UFC Fight Night: Nelson vs. Hunt in Japan against Rin Nakai.

“It’s an awesome feeling to be able to sign with KHI Management,” Tate said. “I have been keeping my eye on them ever since they started working with Donald Cerrone in the UFC. They have all the capabilities I am looking for in an agency, and I really look forward to what the future will hold both inside and out of the Octagon.”

As Tate (14-5) mentioned, Cerrone is one of their clients and a close friend of Harvick’s. Others include Jeff BUrton, Jason Gore and Jake Owen.

“What Miesha has been able to do in her MMA career speaks volumes not only for her athleticism but for her marketability,” Harvick said. “She is a brand all her own, and she has proven she can captivate an audience and move the needle. With that and the solid foundation of sponsors we have here at KHI, I’m excited about our future together.”
