Tate blasts Bellator on Twitter

Monday, October 22, 2012

In late August, Bellator made a big deal about the return of its women’s champion, Zoila Gurgel.

Turns out it may not be that big of a deal after all. That’s because “The Warrior Princess” has been relegated to the un-televised portion of the Bellator 78 fight card, which goes down this Friday night (Oct. 26, 2012) from Wright State’s Nutter Center in Dayton, Ohio.

And that makes former Strikeforce Women’s champion Miesha Tate mad:

“I cannot believe [Bellator] would allow [its] champion to be placed on the UN televised undercard in her hometown. A champion is a champion regardless if she is fighting up a weight, u use her image to promote the posters & then put her on the undercard?! Blows my mind. This is the 2nd time too you have done this I tell you what I would rather never fight MMA again then fight for u under @BellatorMMA banner…. The amount of disrespect you have given @ZoilaGurgel is disgusting.”
