Ronda Rousey Gives Miesha Tate the Finger, Jon Jones Makes Eye Contact With Alexander Gustafsson, And More Championship Staredowns From the ‘UFC World Tour’ [VIDEO]


(Video props: MMA H.E.A.T. via Reddit_MMA)

On Monday, the UFC kicked off an insanely ambitious promotional tour that will take the headliners for UFC 165, UFC 166, UFC 167, and UFC 168 to five countries over five days. The “UFC World Tour” stopped at the Club Nokia at Nokia Live in Los Angeles yesterday, and the fighters had a chance to get up in each others’ faces, while the meatheaded fans in attendance shouted whatever came to mind, like they were at home watching it on TV. You can check out the video above. Some highlights…

0:17-1:00: Ronda Rousey and Miesha Tate come out dressed like office temps. They mean-mug each other, and Rousey gives Tate the ol’ Stockton Heybuddy walking away. The crowd fires off various catcalls. Dana’s goony mug at 0:41 says it all.

1:10-1:52: Georges St. Pierre and Johny Hendricks face off, with Hendricks looking noticeably jacked. The crowd chants “USA!” A fan asks Hendricks what he weighs, and Hendro says “215,” flexing like a boss.

1:54-2:30: Cain Velasquez and Junior Dos Santos take the stage. Nothing much happens.

2:35-3:07: Jon Jones and Alexander Gustafsson get very close. Gustafsson rolls his tongue around in his mouth, preparing himself for the incoming kiss…but it doesn’t come. Breaking with tradition, Jones actually shifts his head and looks directly into the eyes — nay, the soul — of Alexander Gustafsson. Jones hoists his belt, then pop-and-locks his way off stage. The crowd boos.

I Can’t Tell if This Ronda Rousey Tattoo Is Brilliant or Terrible


(“Close enough, let’s do some blow.” – Artist *and* client, simultaneously, I imagine.)

We here at CagePotato.com are a cynical bunch, so naturally, our first instincts upon seeing this Ronda Rousey tattoo were to mock it relentlessly. But upon further review, perhaps this isn’t the single worst fan tattoo since some jaggoff got a tattoo of Arianny the Big-headed T-Rex. Hell, it may be subtle enough to be the single greatest fan tattoo of all time. For example:

- That whole face thing the tattoo has going on? Clearly a tribute to Rousey vs. Tate II, which, judging by the nasty hematoma under Rousey’s eye, this guy believes will end via knockout.

- See how the body of Rousey the woman creature in this tattoo is fat, lacks anything resembling muscles, and has a boob job that was probably done at Wal K-Mart? That’s because only men have big, ugly muscles, so if you’re enjoying a hand bra from a creature with muscles, then you’re fantasizing about a dude.

Ronda Rousey to Make Big-Screen Debut in ‘The Expendables 3′


(Photo by @brianbowensmith via @rondarousey / Click for full-size version)

Real-life action hero Ronda Rousey has booked her first film role, and luckily it has nothing to do with that Hunger Games bullshit. As revealed yesterday by Sylvester Stallone himself, the UFC women’s bantamweight champion will have a part in The Expendables 3, which begins filming next month in Los Angeles; boxing star Victor Ortiz will have a part as well. But don’t worry, the film won’t steal attention from Ronda’s day job. From an MMAFighting report:

According to UFC President Dana White, filming of the movie won’t impact Rousey’s scheduled title defense against Miesha Tate, scheduled on Dec. 28 in Las Vegas at the MGM Grand Garden Arena.

“That’s why I said, `Yes,” said White via text message. “Ronda listens, unlike others.”

Ouch. That remark was obviously directed at Edward James Olmos.

Anderson Silva vs. Chris Weidman II Set for UFC 168 on Dec. 28; Rousey vs. Tate II Added as Co-Main Event


(Video via ESPN)

Never put too much stock in the words of a man who has just been knocked out. Anderson Silva seemed to insist to interviewer Joe Rogan immediately after getting KO’d by Chris Weidman at UFC 162 a week ago that he was not interested in a rematch.

But there was the language barrier thing and the typical Anderson Silva cryptic speech thing to take into account but perhaps more than anything — we were listening to the stream of consciousness reactions of a freshly concussed man. Maybe that’s why UFC President Dana White has spent almost every minute since insisting to the media that the mega-rematch between “The Spider” and “The All-American” would definitely happen.

And, it will. The middleweight title clash is now scheduled to take place December 28th as the main event for UFC 168. The organization’s big New Year’s Eve show will also feature the women’s UFC bantamweight title rematch between Ronda Rousey and Meisha Tate II as its co-main event.

White told Yahoo! Sports that he believes the Weidman/Silva rematch will be the biggest fight in the organization’s history. “White several times Saturday said he thought the bout would be the biggest in UFC history and said he thought it could do between 1.2 million and 1.4 million on pay-per-view,” they reported.

“The UFC does not release its pay-per-view figures, but it is believed that UFC 100, at 1.25 million, is the best-selling pay-per-view the promotion has done.”

Anderson Silva released a short taped statement to ESPN telling fans, “I back. Trust me. I back.” Of course, that was followed by a wink.

Oh, Anderson. We can’t quit you.

Bold Statement of the Day: Miesha Tate Will Shoot Herself in the Face if Ronda Rousey Armbars Her Again


(What a tragedy. And she was such a pretty girl, too. / Miesha Tate ‘Body Issue’ photo by Ben Watts for ESPN The Magazine)

To say that Miesha Tate is still haunted by her gnarly armbar loss to Ronda Rousey last year would be an understatement. In a recent interview with MMAFightCorner (via BleacherReport), Tate explains that suffering a second armbar loss to Ronda at their rematch at UFC 168 in December would be a suicide-worthy scenario. Figuratively speaking. Maybe.

It’s never too early to train and practice that gameplan over and over and over, I’m going to beat it into my skull if I have to,” Tate said. “Swear to God, she’s not going to armbar me if it’s the last thing I do. I will seriously shoot myself in the face before I leave that cage if she armbars me again. It can’t happen.

Two things…

1) I wasn’t aware that fighters were allowed to bring guns into the Octagon, following the Diaz-Cerrone Peace Accords of 2011.

2) I have no problem with this.

Tate went on to give her own explanation of why she fell prey to Rousey’s signature move, and described the Rondabar in terms that make it even more mysterious and scary:

Ronda Rousey vs. Miesha Tate II Slated for UFC 168, December 28th in Las Vegas


(“Hey, that woman might not be a bitch at all. That might just be her bitch-face, and…that’s okay.” / Photo via Getty)

MMA Junkie reports that Ronda Rousey‘s UFC title defense against her old pal Miesha Tate will happen at UFC 168, December 28th in Las Vegas. Yes, that’s a long friggin’ way off, but keep in mind that the two have been busy filming TUF 18: The Rashes, which won’t begin airing until September 4th. Rousey hasn’t competed since her first-round armbar victory over Liz Carmouche at UFC 157 in February, meaning that the champ will be carrying a full ten months of “cage corrosion” (as Mauro might say) when she has her rematch with Tate at the UFC’s year-end show.

Speaking of TUF 18, tensions on the set have been high, to say the least. Here’s Dana White with the hype-up we all knew was coming: “I’m telling you, they hate each other so bad,” he said. “You’re going to see a lot of blur marks. Every f—ing time [Ronda is] seeing her, she’s flipping off and getting in her face…It’s not reality bulls–t. It’s complete and total hatred. They hate each other.”

Careful, Dana, we’ve been hurt before. Meanwhile, Ronda’s original opponent/rival coach Cat Zingano has been busy getting her knee drained and stirring up shit on Twitter. So are you guys psyched for the Rousey vs. Tate rematch, or is this the most unnecessary do-over since Velasquez vs. Bigfoot 2?

Oh, Praise the Lord: Miesha Tate to Appear in ESPN’s Next ‘Body Issue’

Well, if there’s one good thing that has come out of the Cat Zingano-knee injury debacle, it’s this.

Likely to promote her coaching gig and subsequent rematch with Ronda Ronda on the upcoming season of The Ultimate Fighter, MMAJunkie is reporting that Miesha “Cupcake” Tate will be featured in ESPN’s fifth edition of The Body Issue, which hits stands July 12. July twelfth. That’s JULY 12.

CagePotato Open Discussion: What Are the Five Best UFC Fights of 2013 So Far?

So UFC.com just released the promotion’s “unofficial” picks for the best five fights of 2013 so far (how that fan fight at UFC 161 didn’t make the list is anyone’s guess), which can only mean that the time of great debate is upon us once again. From hottest pornstar girlfriend to favorite non-Rocky fight film of all time, the past couple of weeks have been a veritable hotbed of master-debating here at CP, so we expect you Taters to bring the same hellfire and vitriol to this list as you would any other. Let’s get to the nominees…

5. Ronda Rousey vs. Liz Carmouche – UFC 157

How They Described ItIn the first women’s bout to ever take place in the UFC
Octagon, bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey and challenger Liz Carmouche made history with style. Yet despite Rousey’s status as the Queen of the sport, Carmouche nearly spoiled the party when she had the champion seconds away from a submission defeat. In the end though, it was Rousey prevailing late in the first round with her trademark armbar.
