Miesha Tate Calls GSP’s WMMA View Ignorant | UFC NEWS


I think the problem with GSP’s view about WMMA is that he doesn’t have one. If he hasn’t ever watched us women fight then he can’t say how he really feels about it because he’s ignorant.

Being old fashioned is fine, but us “modern day” girls aren’t asking for your protection, we are asking for your acceptance and we are fighting for equality.

If everyone felt about MMA as GSP thinks he feels about WMMA, then he wouldn’t have a job.

I’m hoping George St. Pierre can open his mind a little bit and actually watch some women’s fights. We’re coming to the UFC for a reason and it would be nice to have one of my all-time favorite fighter’s full support.

It won’t take long for him to realize we aren’t these fragile little creatures when we enter the cage, we are warriors and every bit as deserving of respect as the men.

Former Strikeforce champion, Miesha Tate, took to her personal web blog over at cupcaketate.com to respond to the negative remarks towards WMMA made by GSP earlier last week.

    I think she missed the point entirely. Any catchbthe x factor last week? carly rose sonenclar is killin it

    • ted says:

      If girls want equality so much then dont complain when a man beats your ass.. Hell you girls want equality so bad how about asking Dana to join the mens division and watch that attitude change real quick.. dont ask about equality because we are not made the same. With a sport like this its all about testosterone and not Estrogen. ladies stick to cooking and the bedroom and if you complain about equality one more time then dont call a guy a coward if he punches a lady in the face.

  2. Daniel Kimble says:

    She missed the point of his comments entirely. He supports womens MMA, but has a hard time seeing women get hurt and hit that way. He never said they should not fight. He even said someday he will be able to watch it, but it makes him cringe when they take a hard hit. I think it is good that he has that respect for women, and I understand where he is coming from

  3. St. Charles says:

    Yes, she’s adding to much drama by drawing that type of conclusion. I compare his comments to a mother or father giving full support to their children’s fighting careers, whether they were a man or a woman, but would have an awful time watching the actual fight. To call GSP ignorant after his comments about WMMA, Tate comes off as… well, ignorant – IMO.

  4. B-rad says:

    Who gives a shit what tate has to say.. Her calling GSP ignorant just proves how dumb she really is. UFC PPV qualitly has been slipping for the most part (except saturdays) and if this WMMA horse shit goes thru like its looking like it will, then the quality of cards are gonna go down even more

    • SUCKITBRAD says:

      B-Rad, Is this Brad trying to be Rad? or Is this Rad trying to B? Or is this just Brad being a douche? You are more than welcome to change the channel when the women fight. You and your narrow minded horseshit can suck it, then STFU.

  5. Matt says:

    I agree 100 % Meshia is the one who doesn’t get it.. He said he supports the women its good for them to make money in the sport, good for the fans. But the way he was raised the things he saw makes it difficult for him to watch a woman fight like that.. It doesn’t take a genius to read through the lines there what he’s saying. I question the fact that you would take to the media and call a guy like GSP ignorant ? He has been nothing but great for the sport and for martial artists everywhere..

  6. gouldx87 says:

    I actually agree with George. I love MMA and respect womens MMA some of those girls can throw down with the best of them, but at the end of the day they’re still women and i was raised in a home where you never hit a woman and that kind of thing doesnt go well its hard for me to watch. Not because i dont respect them as athletes and fighters its just how i was raised

  7. rob says:

    don’t neck gsp, he is just uncomfortable. not against it, no negative view whatsoever. just uncomfortable. but hey, i cant stay mad at miesha tate

  8. YoungLove says:

    Ms. Miesha Tate is all confused get a grip Miesha the world does not revolve around you, you are lucky that some men are still gentlemen. If you want it so damn equal then fuck weddings and why even bother give women a big diamond when all we get is a shiny piece of pipe. Want equal treatment and respect then don’t call yourself cupcake, call yourself a warriors name like “The Amazon” or something I mean seriously who the fuck would have any respect in a fighting arena after hearing hear comes Little Miss Cup Cake?

  9. slakespeare says:

    Fuck Tate. G.S.P. would easily submit her and then fuck her.

  10. Ak-47 says:

    Womens MMA is great, it’s more about fundamentals.

  11. Womens MMA IS great says:

    Yeah womens MMA is great it’s more about Cyborg and Ronda… Then everyone else kind of just sucking in comparison be it first round armbar numnber six or just another flash knockout

  12. mike says:

    miesha tate just needs to get naked for the camera and shut up. just like a woman making drama where there is none. she is just jealous of gsp and ronda rousey.

  13. You're all confused says:

    Wow, she didn’t take that out of context and personal at all, must be the PED’s ;)
