Tate Says Rousey Is Not A Real Fighter, Has Barely Even Thrown A Punch

February 21, 2012 4:40 pm by Pedro Carrasco

“Ronda doesn’t have a lot of experience…She has a lot of bad habits that come from Judo that are going to be hard for her to break because they are instinctual, it’s called Muscle memory. She’s trained it that way so many times but it doesn’t work that well for MMA.

As a Mixed Martial Artist I’ve been trying to perfect this sport of Mixed Martial Arts six times as long as she has and I feel like when I get out there as a fighter and I turn this into a fight, not a Judo match because Ronda’s not a fighter she hasn’t fought a single fight yet. She’s gone out there, she’s judo thrown people and she’s arm barred them. She’s maybe thrown five punches in her whole entire fight career.

It’s going to be a game changer when she finally eats some leather this time and she’s not able to go out there and just throw me around like she has with the girls that she’s fought previously”

In probably the most memorable quote from today’s Strikeforce media conference call, female champion Miesha Tate questions the credentials of her upcoming opponent, Ronda Rousey.

What she says is mostly true, but it is hard to discredit Rousey’s dominance over everyone who has stood opposite her.
