Manager: Tate deserves as much credit as Rousey

by Steven Marroco | source: mmajunkie.com
 

"If Ronda is the reason why Dana (White) decided to do the women's division, then Ronda gets the credit for it," Malki Kawa told MMAjunkie.com Radio (www.mmajunkie.com/radio). "But Muhammed Ali was nobody without (Joe) Frazier. I think Ronda is nobody without Miesha.

"If it wasn't for that Tate/Rousey beef, I don't think we have a women's division. So I give just as much credit to Miesha as I do Ronda."

Rousey, who this past December was crowned the inaugural UFC women's bantamweight champ, is set to defend her title against Liz Carmouche in the headliner of UFC 157, which takes place Feb. 23 at Honda Center in Anaheim, Calif.

Tate, meanwhile, fights Cat Zingano at The Ultimate Fighter 17 Finale on April 13 in Las Vegas.

The former rivals still reside under the same promotional umbrella, and Kawa thinks a rematch is inevitable.

"Miesha knows her role in this business," he said. "She knows that women's MMA is right now on Ronda's back. It could be back on hers with one or two victories. I think she has as much a part of it as anybody."

The "pre-fight beef" was as one sided as the fight. Rhonda even punked Tate's BF. I give her very little credit.

Ariel's recap of the incident was:"If you're wondering what the brouhaha was during the presser, I'm told Frankie's mgr @alidominance and Bendo's mgr @malkikawa got into a scuffle. Not sure who won, but I'm told it was the opposite of the main event, if you catch my drift. For whatever it's worth, Ali and his team say he punched Malki in the face. It seems like they didn't like what he had to say after the main event, although, I'm not quite sure what was said."Malki deserves a much worse beating than whatever he got. Scumbags like him do not belong in MMA.
