Miesha Tate v. Ronda Rousey
During an appearance on CBS Sport Radio Miesha Tate discussed her upcoming battle with Ronda Rousey. Tate questioned whether Rousey would ever come back the same and implied that her spirit had been broken by the loss to Holm. “Whenever I’ve been down and out, my motivation was to come back and be better, stronger…” “I haven’t heard her say that one time.” Further, in Tates opinion Ronda has become distracted by making movies and a relationship with Travis Browne. She believes that Rousey wants to settle down and have a family.
Ronda herself has mentioned being near the end of her fighting career. Even back in early 2014 she talked about potentially retiring due to the many opportunities coming her way. On countless occasions she has detailed the long list of injures the a life of competing has left her with.
“I’m not going to be doing this in my 30s. I don’t want to be fighting in my 30s…” -Ronda Rousey
Ronda Rousey is the most dominant woman in MMA to date
All that said and despite Miesha Tate’s tough talk, who will win is still hard to tell. After all there is this:
No matter how tough you are going up against someone who has broken your elbow and twisted it the wrong way is extremely difficult. Controlling your mental state is important for any fighter and is particularly difficult if you’ve already lost to them.
So what’s your opinion folks? Will it be Tate or Rousey in their next match up?
