Tate wants to team up with Cris Cyborg


Miesha Tate appeared recently on “Inside MMA” with Kenny Rice and Bas Rutten. Tate talked about her arch rival Ronda Rousey, calling her “emotionally unstable” and saying “it’s no secret, I want to punch her in the face.”

Tate also talked about teaming up with Cristiane “Cyborg” Justino in preparation of her Dec. 28 fight.

"I think she's the best woman on this planet," said Tate of Cyborg. "So if she wants to come in an help me with my camp, she's more than welcome. And the fact that she doesn't like Ronda, that's kind of a bonus."

Maybe I missed something here, but Barnett is bitching about someone trying to get a competitive advantage? Barnett's a bigger ass than I thought

I think Miesha had the upperhand against Ronda quite a few times in their first fight, and, actually, made it competitive for most of the fight.Barnett summed it up the best for me: there were times it was competitive, and there were times where she was saying "screw it", and gave openings for Ronda to armbar her:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B-zbC674e2I (around 18 minute mark)If her head is cool, I think she got a shot.In fact, I will bet some money on Miesha, although I do think Ronda is the favourite.

Can you imagine the outrage if Ronda fought Joanne Calderwood? And that's far less a size disparity than Cyborg/Akano.

Miesha will have to move on if Ronda finishes her quickly in two weeks. What are her other options? Become the first female commentator?
