Miesha Tate on a Rousey Rematch: “I’ll rip her face off.” | UFC NEWS

Never one to reserve her criticism toward Ronda Rousey, Miesha Tate confidently asserted post-UFC 157 that in a rematch she would “rip her face off.”

In this interview with Ariel Helwani, Tate and her next opponent, Cat Zingano, both assessed Rousey’s performance as expected and unimpressive.

Tate, who succumbed to a Rousey armbar back in March 2012, commented on Ronda’s performance against tough competitor, Liz Carmouche.  “She did get a little sloppy there, giving her back up, which is a habit I’ve picked up on,” said Tate.  She was referring to Rousey’s persistent attempts to secure Carmouche’s arm with her own legs from a head-and-arm hold, an attack which ultimately allowed Carmouche to spin to Rousey’s back early in the fight.

Tate and Rousey have fought once before, with Rousey winning via armbar.  If Tate is able to defeat Zingano, who is by no means an easy opponent, a rematch with the UFC champ seems inevitable.


Who will get the better of this rematch remains to be seen, if it is indeed in the cards.  Regardless, we can certainly expect to see some heated verbal exchanges if Tate and Rousey are to face off once more.


Miesha Tate will fight Cat Zingano on April 13 on The Ultimate Fighter 17 Finale.

    First off she got you into the UFC tate, so you should be impressed. Second, you won’t be able to rip her face off after she rips your arm off again. Don’t tap this time and see what happens “cupcake”.

    So who do you got as the hottest looking wmma in the UFC? I would choose Carano, but she’s not in the UFC and not fighting any more so I got Tate… Who Ya Got?

    Again the writer of this article with the miss interpreted title and body of work.. Hawani asked Miesha if she got rouseys back like Liz it would have been over.. Miesha sad yes, I would rip her face off.. Yeah Miesha did get her back slightly in the first fight but not like Liz did which Miesha was referring to! I would like to see that rematch cause Miesha looked better on her feet than Rousey.. And she might have picked up on something..
