Rousey: Tate got a title shot because of her 'nice ass'


UFC women's bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey was interviewed recently by Jim Rome on CBS Sports Radio, and offered a theory on why Miesha Tate got the title shot Saturday night.

“She had an embarrassing and bad performance against Julie Kedzie," said Rousey. "She lost and got dropped by an elbow by Cat Zingano. She was getting beat pretty bad, then Cat hurt her knee. Miesha has a nice ass and an ongoing rivalry with me and that’s the only reason she was picked for this fight.”

"There's no comparison --?? I'??m an Olympic athlete and she'??s a high school wrestler... She has to make it personal because she can’t make it an athletic rivalry because there really is no comparison."

Rousey was also asked when she might retire, but did say her goals include being the sole undefeated female bantamweight in the UFC.

"??It'??s hard to have an exact clock," said Rousey. "I definitely have certain short-term goals I know need to be met. After those are met, then I'll reevaluate."

The two undefeated female bantamweights at present are Cat Zingano and Sara McMann.

"??After that, I can reassess and look at my next goal,"?? she said.

I wonder if she'll give Miesha an oil check.

Miesha does have a nice ass and is sexy in general I personally think she's a lot sexier then Rhonda but no one beats Gina Carano. I bet the UFC would make a FW division if she came back.

Try too look at the nose. You can clearly see it's not Miesha. Also Mieshas ass is tighter and the insert on the bottom is higher up.Fuck I am looking way too hard

Miesha said almost the exact same thing when Ronda got her title shot against her.  And Ronda called her a hypocrite because Miesha had taken glamour pics in booty shorts before.
