Tate happy to be free of Rousey drama


For the past few years you couldn't mention Miesha Tate unless Ronda Rousey was also in the conversation. The two fought twice and coached opposite each other on the Ultimate Fighter. Now Tate has moved past her rivalry with Rousey and looks forward to her fight with Liz Carmouche, and a lot less drama:

“I really like being matched up with Liz,” Tate said. “It’s so refreshing. She has great sportsmanship. I get along with everyone from her team. It’s nice to just not have anything else to focus on. No drama. For most of my life, I’ve been a drama-free girl.” 

Drama has not been kind to Tate inside the cage. She gives full credit to Rousey for beating her twice (in March 2012 and again in December) but, as any competitive fighter likely would, believes she could have performed better. 

She appeared to essentially play into Rousey’s strengths in the second fight, by loading her weight onto Rousey’s hips during constant attempts to take her down.

Not in the slightest. Meisha however comes across as a hypocritical pompus snob, and I want to see her get smashed. Not just tap to an armbar, but Curran/Warren style devastated.On top of her attitude, Mr Tate bugs the living shit out of me as well. Meishas hot and all, I get that, but I want to see her get her ass beat. A little humility goes a long way, and she has none.And for the record, not only is she hot, but shes tough as hell. I would have been screaming for my momma and divine intervention if my arm was bent like hers during Rondas first attempt. If for nothing else I will always respect her for continuing to fight through that, but Im from the bareknuckle days and still enjoy watching people catch a serious beatdown.

Perhaps. She is the only fighter that has come close to defeating Ronda.

You will be disappointed. Liz always finds a way to lose against elite competition. She's 0-4 against ranked fighters. She only has one win over an opponent with a winning record (Jessica Andrade). She might give Tate some problems, but Miesha will weather the storm and find a way to win.
