(Now smile and pretend you like each other.)
If you didn’t know, Miesha Tate‘s turn ons are long walks on the beach and a good Twitter war.
The problem is that her latest intended target, Tara LaRosa hates the feeling of sand between her toes and isn’t one to take unwarranted abuse lying down. Consequently, the 11-2 Strikeforce women’s 135-pound contender may have bitten off more than she can chew with the outspoken highly-touted 125-pound 14-2 New Jersey native.
In a nutshell, Tate started the ball rolling by saying she would easily beat LaRosa as she claims that she used to “handle” her when the pair trained together when Meisha first started training in the sport. LaRosa scoffed at the claims, and said that she used to go at about 30% intensity with her much larger former training partner.
Of course Tate took umbrage to the intimation that she was fat, prompting her to say that she saw photos of LaRosa in high school and that she had to be about 180 or so — another claim Tara debunked.
The game point of the match went to LaRosa who revealed that a source in the know had tipped her off today to the fact that Tate allegedly employs the use of clenbuterol, a bronchodilator typically used by asthma sufferers that also doubles as a weight-cutting aid. Tate uncharacteristically ignored the claim by LaRosa and pretended like she didn’t read the tweet (or subsequent tweets).
For those of you who speak Twitter, the nuts and bolts of their back-and forth are after the jump.
