Tate Rousey

“[Tate]’s much better. I mean, we’ve worked very hard at adding on a deeper level of striking. Her hands are getting better and better and better. We’re adding kicks in a little bit more. Her wrestling is getting better, and we keep continuing to work on her judo. She’s a confident professional, both her and Bryan are constantly looking to evolve their game, which showed up in these fights.

“I mean, this [Eye fight] was a fight where she went out and dominated standing up with a girl I think everybody thought should have won on the stand-up. I think we showed the skills that we’ve been working are definitely showing up in the cage, which is where you need them to.”

Miesha Tate’s coach Robert Follis talked on The MMA Hour and said that Tate is a much better fighter now compared to when she last fought Ronda Rousey.

Are you guys excited for a third fight between the two of them?
