Miesha Tate Blasts “Hypocritical” Ronda Rousey for ESPN Nude Shoot


(For Christ’s sake, just kiss and make up already!) 

Who saw this coming? Hint: everybody.

Ever since the photos of Ronda Rousey’s nude pictorial for the second edition of ESPN’s “The Body” issue were released, a moment that was responsible for more cases of sudden onset carpal tunnel syndrome than the day Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee’s sex tape was “stolen” from their home, the Strikeforce women’s bantamweight champ has come under a bit of fire from some of her critics. While many of us passed it off as a classic case of “angry troll is angry,” it was hard to look past the fact that most of the criticism was a result of former claims made by none other than Rousey herself. Most notably, Rousey’s statements that Miesha Tate should be ashamed for taking pictures that showed off her pristine hind end and what her future kids would think and blah blah blah. Rousey also ripped on a few selective ring girls who shall remain nameless for posing in Playboy magazine, a.k.a the glove into which Evil slips its hand.

Of course, “Rowdy’s” previous statements came back and bit her right in her glorious ass when her own nude photos were released. Her confusing diatribe aimed at Kim Kardashian, in which Rousey stated that she had the right to pose nude because she was a role model and Kim didn’t because she only became famous for getting naked and Skechers shoes and 13 year-olds and something or other who cares, surely didn’t help matters. Ronda even willingly appeared on the television frequency at which human scum resides, TMZ, to lay into Kardashian, a move that we feel may have just evened the scales between the two in terms of attention whoring.

But at the end of the day, we were grateful that Ronda used whatever justification she needed to get naked for us, and thought the rest of the world should think the same. One person who clearly didn’t agree with us was the woman Rousey defeated for the bantamweight championship just a couple months ago, Miesha Tate, who recently let Ronda have it over Twitter.

Now, far be it from us to criticize any attractive woman for getting nude and allowing the world to see it for a few measly dollars, but it is hard to deny the merit in Miesha’s words. The fact that Ronda would piss on (no, not literally, calm down Rex) Miesha for showing her ass in a pair of tight shorts/thong/whatever, and then drop trou for the sake of being a role model seems a bit hypocritical on her part. Of course, if Tate really wanted to rain on Rousey’s parade, she would pose nude for Hustler, Penthouse, or Perfect 10 alongside Gina Carano or any of the 11 other women we have selected for her to choose from. Can you imagine how much that would piss Ronda off? Seriously, just imagine it…

Now watch this behind-the-scenes video of Rousey’s photo shoot while deciding your stance on the issue.

A. Shonuff's boyfriend will be home soon so that rant should stop.
B. I do see a difference between a paid (highly paid) photos shoot and a 'look at me ass in my 600 a month apartment , let's post it' photo. In this case the difference was a thong.
C. After meeting Meisha, keep her. Her pleas to change from doggie would hit deaf ears.
D. We did. Need this to wash the cyborg shoot out of our collective 'don't think about cyborg nude, dammit, sorry honey this never happens to me' conscious.

You sir said exactly what I was thinking. +1

Dopeman (appropriate), the people who struggle with getting ass are the tools who can't seem to separate art from "omg i see boobies!" That comes with maturity and perhaps some culture beyond yelling "fag" at everyone on COD. Maybe you can recognize the difference when you turn 15.

The human body is not innately sexual, nudity isn't always about sex. Seriously, kiddies, grow up.

@sho_nuff I am guessing the last time you touched a piece of ass was when your finger slipped off the toilet paper when you were wiping your ass?

I just find women more enjoyable to be around when they take all their clothes off.

@Sho Nuff No, honsetly I don't get the difference. I think it's a played out cop out and I'm tired of hearing it. The only difference I see is budget. I don't think getting naked in front of 20 or 30 people and having your pictures airbrushed to death makes it any more ok morally than having your boyfriend snap a pic in the privacy of your home. Personally, I don't really care what they do. I do, however, think Rhonda is a huge hypocrite.

Do people really not get the difference between a photo gallery celebrating the human form at it's athletic peak, and the artistic value of that, versus "look at my ass, aren't I a nice whore?"

Or can you not get any further than "heh, heh, heh, boobies"?
Mr_Misanthropy- July 19, 2012 at 2:27 am
I will totally referee their naked rematch golden showers and poo-cups be damned. Can't we all just git along?
holeeball- July 18, 2012 at 7:23 pm
This bitch can role model me anytime she wants. I'd go for the cock chocker and pray it works.

Is it just me or does Ronda have a giant Tic on her face......
ReX13- July 18, 2012 at 3:24 pm
and yeah, i'd totally let Ronda pee on me.


Oh like you wouldn't.





Unless she's not into that, in which case --

gross, what the fuck? i don't do any of that golden shower nonsense.

HEY YO RONDA BABY **makes 'call me' fingers**
ReX13- July 18, 2012 at 3:21 pm
i'd low crawl through a quarter-mile of sweat from Cyborg's nutsack and rory mac's bacne just to listen to Ronda break Miesha's arm again through a couple of paper cups and some waxed string.

am i doing it right?
amsterdamheavy- July 18, 2012 at 3:34 pm

SquidInk- July 18, 2012 at 3:19 pm

Silly Miesha. Men don't care about integrity, hypocrisy, the debate of what's artistic nude and what's pornography, the role of female athletes as role models for young women... we care about boobs.
Fried Taco- July 18, 2012 at 2:09 pm
BTW, I am soliciting models for the first-ever Fried Taco Magazine Body Issue. Miesha, Ronda, Gina, anyone?
Fried Taco- July 18, 2012 at 2:06 pm
If she is not going to rip off her clothes and say "Here is how you do a nude shoot!" then I don't want to hear it.
