Former UFC middleweight Chael Sonnen recently talked on ‘Stone Cold’ Steve Austins’ podcast and the topic of Ronda Rousey and her upcoming fight came up.

Sonnen admitted that if you go by the rankings then yes, Miesha Tate should have gotten the next title shot, but like Dana White said, we’ve all seen that fight before, twice.

So they went with Holly Holm instead. UFC commentator Joe Rogan went on his own podcast and said he wasn’t happy with the booking, saying they should have gone with Amanda Nunes.

Sonnen agreed that Nunes could have been the one to get the shot, but at the end of the day, who cares.

Here’s what he said:

“Miesha Tate is the right contender if you want to follow the rankings but that’s been done twice. The division lacks parity. It’s a tough sell and we’ve already seen it twice and it wasn’t close the first two times. I like that there’s new blood. I like that Holly Holm is in there in terms of Miesha being out, but I get Joe Rogan’s point with Amanda Nunes. You could have gone with her but at this point, what the hell’s the difference? We’re buying it for Ronda and that’s just the truth.”
