MMA Fighter Challenges People to Punch Him in the Face, Everyone Fails

Rousey Planning on Pounding ‘Un-American, Selfish Girl’ Tate Into the Ground

(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:

Her Weight 

“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.”

It doesn't matter what she says, every one knows theres only one true Olympic Hero and thats Kurt Angle

The truth of the matter is we all end up losing on this deal because now there are 2 less women out there to make sandwiches.

@Frank
It's un-American to question her questioning un-Americaness! Why, if she hadn't stood up for this country's Judo ability there might very well be a significant Wheaties deficit, and in this economy WE CAN NOT AFFORD SUCH THINGS.

@xeno - Wow takes me back to see the atari. I was right there playing Pitfall back in the day, holmes.

@ Ronda, um, you pretty much did come fourth, you lost the quarters and then got back in basically via wild card(its called repecharge in Olympic competition), and the attitude your words suggests is not of a humble athlete giving her all, It smacks of a self centred attention seeker, "ungrateful POS, I won that medal for you' get over yourself Ronda, you went OK at the Olympics, but its not the world changing event you seem to think it was. Keep things in perspective sweetheart, and Ronda if you want to see how an Olympic Champion conducts herself, google Lauren Burns

The world according to Ronda Rousey, I find this girls pontifications quite annoying, Yea your in the top 5 of womens MMA, but save the holier than thou shit for love letters to Sonnen, I hope Meisha beats this girl convincingly, tapping her out via armbar would be nice.

I have to disagree with her about the nudity part. It's easy to explain, just say "that is what women do when they're not making sammiches."

I have no problem with Showtime (Dexter is THE SHIT), but there isn't a snowball's chance in hell I'll continue to do business with Time Warner Cable. So, fuck the cable companies and their price gouging and their monopolies in their stonage asses. They will be gone like Blockbuster and Tower Records in a year or two. I can already get UFC on my Xbox.

If you don’t currently subscribe to Showtime, I highly recommend you download a bittorrent client, because this is one fight you don’t want to miss.

I actually added showtime to our cable because of this fight. In the end, Dana and Showtime will win all the way to the bank on this one.

Love her as a fighter; hate her bullshit Fox News style spin on the gold medal issue.
