Miesha Tate dropped by the Invicta commentating booth during Saturday’s event and talked a little bit about how her Rousey-mangled arm is doing:
Mauro Ranallo: When are you supposed to be back in action?
Miesha Tate: You know I haven’t got any clearance from the doctors yet. I’m going in for my two month checkup here in a minute. But you know the arm is doing really well. Definitely beating any predictions as far as my recovery. So… I’m really anxious to get back in there.
Mauro Ranallo: What was the extent of the injury because I know you tweeted a picture of the arm and it wasn’t broken or anything? What happened to the arm in that fight?
Miesha Tate: I basically tore everything. I tore the inner and outer sides of my ligaments attached to the muscles and bone. They actually pulled the bone off with the ligament and then I tore all the muscles around that. So… it was pretty bad, but you know for me it wasn’t really that bad. I think that… I have the motto that as long as you get up one more time than you fall down then… you know what I mean, you are doing something right? So I’ll be back stronger than ever.
Let this be a lesson to anyone who’s considering letting pride f*ck with them when they get caught in an armbar. Don’t do what Miesha Tate did, no matter how badass and tough it made her look.
