After Ronda Rousey lost her UFC title to Holly Holm at UFC 193, Miesha Tate took the stage at a Las Vegas Gentleman’s club screaming “Fuck Ronda Rousey!, You just got beat bitch!”. The video went viral before it was taken down because of the bad backlash Tate was receiving.
Miesha went on MMAJunkie Radio yesterday and told her side of the story and what she thinks about her and Ronda’s future.
“I don’t feel sorry for her – I think she kind of got what was coming to her,” Tate said. “This was something that was long overdue. I feel like maybe now she’s going to be more humble in her approach. I would respect her even more as an athlete and as a competitor. I would respect her more if she was a little bit more humble in her approach to all of this. She doesn’t feel sorry me in for my position so no, it is what it is. It’s the fight game and she signed on the dotted line. They both showed up, and Holly was the better fighter.”
“She’s always portrayed herself as invincible and everybody bought into that so much that nobody was going to beat her, that she was going to retire undefeated and everything that she’s said,” Tate said. “You can’t take away what she has done – she’s still an incredible athlete, she was still the longest reigning champion. There were things that this girl has done – like or dislike the girl, you can’t take that away from her.”
“When you make a comment like, ‘I can beat everyone in my division with one arm tied behind my back,’ I guess you should kind of expect that kind of backlash if you get beaten so brutally like she did by Holly. When you make comments like that, you’re asking for people to say, ‘Ha!’ Are you not?’”
