Meisha Tate went on Inside MMA to share her negative feelings regarding Ronda Rousey getting a title shot against her. This is basically a continuation of the smack displaced contender Sarah Kaufman was talking, so I won’t bother to address it again. Instead I will let Ronda’s mother do the honors:
I’ve read a few of these blogs and comments written by people who have never met Ronda, never done judo at an international level and never seen Ronda train. It’s too bad that they don’t have a Stupid Olympics or a Whiny White Girl Olympics because I think we could have some real contenders.
In the points below, I am just going to use Whiny Girl because it is shorter than Whiny Girl 3, Whiny Girl 2, Random Guy Using the Internet from His Mother’s Basement and Ex-Boyfriend Ronda Dumped. Don’t feel left out. It’s like when we use ‘mankind’ to mean humanity. You are all included.
Here are my opinions on YOUR opinions on Ronda’s world title fight coming up.
Stupid idea #1: Ronda has only had four fights and Whiny Girl has had 9 or 12 or 17 and trained for four years. Guess what? Ronda has had hundreds of fights. She’s had fights where people tried to throw her to the ground, choke her unconscious and break her arm. These were with women who had a decade or more of experience at trying to throw people down, choke them and break their arms.
Stupid idea #2: Whiny Girl says Ronda shouldn’t fight because, “We don’t know how good she is. She has won her fights so fast.” That’s so stupid it’s really hard for me to respond other than wondering if you even listen to the words that come out of your mouth. Are you saying that you don’t know how good she is because she has been so much better than the people she fought? I will tell you then. Very fucking good. There, now you know.
Stupid idea #3: Whiny Girl says we don’t know if Ronda can do anything but an arm bar because she has won every match with an arm bar. I’ll tell you how to find out – stop her from arm barring you and see what happens. If you can’t stop her, I guess you’ll never know.
She’s repudiates two more ‘stupid ideas’ amongst other things over on her blog. But oh man. Whiny White Girl Olympics. That’s a keeper right there.
