(Shamrock and Ortiz ain’t got nothin’ on these two in the hate department.)
In case you’ve been living under a rock, Ronda Rousey and Miesha Tate have a Strikeforce title fight coming up in a little less than two weeks’ time. The tension between these two women is positively supercharged, and has led to some of the best pre-fight trash talk in MMA history. If the hype and media build-up surrounding their March 3 bout could be measured in monetary units, the United States national debt could be reduced to a zero balance, with a little spare change left over to place a wager on their fight.
Now, there is a new beef between these lovely ladies, and it all stems from comments made by Tate, regarding Rousey’s Olympic accolades.
In a recent TapouT Radio interview, Rousey spit hot fire and molten lava in Miesha’s direction, and gave a current chronicling of a variety of hot button topics.
Here’s what “Rowdy” had to say about:
“I’m at 141.8 right now. I’m a professional, and I want to have a better cut than Miesha does, because I want to beat the girl into the ground. I know that in her mind, she thinks my weight cut is going to be a disadvantage to me, and I want her to know that my weight cut is going great, and she’s in for some big trouble. I want her to know that I’m fully hydrated and ready to roll, the day of the weigh-ins. I’m lifting the same amount of weight now, in late training, as I was when I was heavier, so I’m maintaining the same amount of strength, and I’m training at this lighter weight, so I’m much faster now. I think I’m going to be much more accustomed to being at a lighter weight than she is.”
The Tate Turnaround
“If you compare the original interview that we did with Ariel Helwani, with the round table we did with Scott Coker, she pretty much has abandoned every single stance that she had from the very beginning, and has adopted every point that I made. She kind of just knew that she was wrong, never admitted it, and slowly started to concede to every point that I made, with every interview over the last couple months. She doesn’t really have a solid personality or a solid stance. She’s just kind of like bland and blah, and doesn’t know how to stick to her guns or answer anything in a consistent way.”
