Tate: Idea of Carano getting a title shot 'not fair'


With rumors circulating that Gina Carano is close to signing with the UFC and that both Ronda Rousey and Dana White have said she is deserving of a title shot, some of the women's roster are a bit upset. Yesterday Liz Carmouche said that she felt Carano couldn't last ten seconds with Rousey and today former number one contender Miesha Tate expressed her opinion that Carano should not get a title fight:

Miesha Tate was a Strikeforce women's champion and is the only person to take Ronda Rousey out of the third round. She's paid her dues in MMA, earned her title shots and doesn't think Gina Carano skipping the line for a UFC bout with Rousey is fair.

"No, absolutely not," Tate told FOX Sports. "There's no way. I think there's no way that would be fair or right. I don’t think anybody in their right mind would say that would be fair."

"I would love the opportunity to fight Gina," Tate said. "If she's gonna make a comeback, I think anybody that wants to get to Ronda, I think that they should have to go through me or Liz [Carmouche] or somebody that's proven themselves as giving Ronda a pretty tough go."

Its not like the UFC would be wanting to promote another tate vs rousey fight, in the UFC's eyes carrano equals big $ plus ever since tuf tate's stock isnt that high with the fans

Wanting the Gina fight in 2014 is like everyone in UFC wanting to fight Kimbo the first time. Soft touch, big enough name it pays better.

What, does she want a 2nd title shot in a row for doing nothing? Who does she think she is, Nick Diaz?

The age old argument of fair vs marketable. It's got nothing to do with fair, and everything to do with the bottom line.
