UFC president Dana White has come out and answered the question a lot of people have been wondering since early this morning. What happened to Miesha Tate?
Bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey went on ‘Good Morning America’ and announced that she will be fighting Holly Holm at UFC 195, which will take place on Jan. 2 in Las Vegas.
The first thought, most likely, in everyone’s head was why didn’t Tate get the title shot. She was basically promised it after her win over Jessica Eye at UFC on FOX 16. She’s also on a four fight win streak and arguably is the best fighter in the division, besides Ronda. However, according to White, who talked to The Los Angeles Times, Tate has one thing going against her. We’ve all already seen her lose to Rousey, twice.
“We were talking about Miesha from the start, then as we started sitting around we were saying, ‘Everyone has seen the Miesha fight already.’ A third fight in a rivalry usually comes after the stuff we’d see in [Arturo] Gatti-[Micky] Ward. With Miesha, the result has been the same twice. Everyone’s already seen that fight.”
“Theres two sides to the coin. … “I’m not sure losing another fight to Ronda so soon would be good for Miesha. She’s not going anywhere. I think she’ll be fine.”
