Tate: Hate me if you want to


Miesha Tate was recently announced as the new opposing coach to Ronda Rousey on the next season of the Ultimate Fighter after original coach Cat Zingano was injured. Despite losing the fight with Zingano, Tate is now sitting her position coach and will have her shot at the women's title again. But if you ask her, she doesn't care how it happenend, but happy that it did:

"People, hate me if you want to, but the fighter in me says I wasn't finished," Tate told MMAjunkie.com Radio (www.mmajunkie.com/radio). "I would have honestly rather the referee let it go and have her knock me out if that's what was destined to be."

It seems, though, that destiny still is in the ex-Strikeforce champ's corner. As reported Tuesday, Zingano suffered a serious knee injury in training and is expected to be sidelined for six to nine months. On Monday, Tate reported to Las Vegas and shocked Rousey when she turned up on the reality-show set.

"I did not expect this by any means after the loss to Cat, but I got it," she said. "I get to fight Ronda again. Everyone knows that I want that. Everyone knows that we don't like each other, and I think that makes for more interesting TV. It just feels right."

Keep up that shitty attitude and we will. It's a shame too cause she's a good fighter and attractive which should make her money in the bank. But she insists on doing everything she can to make people dislike her.

It'll be a coaches challenge. Who can use the swinging motion of their arm to chop down the door. Ronda will snap off one of Miesha's arms to use it as an axe.

I think the fact it is going to be woman fighters will make for better ratings. I don't by it that Tate would be better TV than Cat. More people like Junie and Let Me bang make stupid TV
