Ronda Rousey has been talking mad sh*t at Miesha Tate, calling her ‘slow’ and ‘not dangerous’ and dissing her boyfriend / UFC fighter ‘Mr Miesha Tate’ Bryan Caraway. So it’s understandable that Miesha would start firing back sooner or later with some strong words. Here she is showing that she can do more than just complain about the injustice of having to face Ronda. She wants to beat that girl ugly:
“I think it’s just what I need, actually,” Tate said of Rousey getting on her nerves. “I think that I’ve been fighting for long enough that sometimes I get a little bit comfortable, that’s the truth of the matter. And when you don’t like someone, the idea of losing to them is just unbearable. Like, I cannot think of losing to this girl, it cannot happen. My pride is on the line here, people. You don’t understand. It’s not just winning the fight or keeping my title, it’s like, this bitch is not going to beat me, there’s no way this is going to happen. I think, for me, it’s just going to make it that much more exciting because you’re going to see a much more exhilarated me, you’re going to see a much more pumped and vicious, I think. I don’t want to just like fight this girl, I don’t want to just beat her, I want to really hurt her. I really do, I want to like mar her face if at all possible, that’d be nice.”
Like totally disfigure her or something great. What is this, Afghanistan? I am outrage, I say! To me, this is just as bad if not worse than that time Frank Mir waxed poetic on causing Brock Lesnar’s death in the octagon. Mainly because unlike Frank, I think Miesha might be serious. And if it becomes a thing where evil champions like Miesha aim to mar the visages of competitors more beautiful than her, where will future sexy female MMA fighters come from?
But what will discourage the next generation of fight foxes more? Miesha defacing their good looks or Ronda Rousey breaking everyone’s arms backwards? She compares the results to a ‘flamingo knee’, and if the point she’s trying to get across is that both look gross then I’d agree wholeheartedly with that.
