Miesha Tate pissed f@$%!#& fight was stopped early


Referee Kim Winslow stopped Saturday night's co-main event Cat Zingano vs. Miesha Tate bout at 2:55 of Round 3 following a series of knees and an elbow.

At the post-fight press conference, "Cupcake" Tate argued vehemently that the stoppage was premature.

She also felt there might have been a late knee.

“I’m pissed to say the least,” said Tate. “I’m definitely not happy. I still feel like I was in the fight. I don’t for one second feel like it should have been stopped. I’m a fighter and I wanted to keep fighting.”

“Kim came in and told me before we ever left the locker room that, ‘If I warn you to move, all I need to know is that you want to stay in the fight. I felt that I did that. I got from the bottom, up. I got kneed a few times on the way. I tried to shoot another shot, and the fight was stopped.

“I sat up. I shot a double. I got to my feet. I took some damage because of that, because I was trying to listen to the referee, and she f------ stopped the fight. She told me to, ‘Show me something.’ I don’t know what you want?”

What do you think UG? Was the stoppage early, late, or just right?

I think "Brock Lesnar pulling guard against Shane Carwin" or something would have had a better effect. Arona was actually attacking in the fight with Quinton and got countered. He wasn't just getting blitzed like Tate was.

Better to stop a fight a little early than stop it too late IMO.

Gee, did you wife happen to be a Tate fan? lol at "i hate that ref" over that. Like she was about to make a comeback and win the round. She was about to get her face smashed some more until she literally went unconscious. I thought she won the first two rounds, that doesnt mean she gets extra leniency in stoppages in the third.

Yea Winslow should've let the fight go longer so Cat could've beat her up even more..sounds about right...

ther have been many fights where aguy is nearly ko'd, but comes back to win   tate might have been another if given the chance   i prefer refs that let the fighters sort it out til someone is truly done
