Quick Twitt | Ronda Rousey Agrees With Miesha Tate On GSP’s Ignorance Towards WMMA | UFC NEWS


Earlier this week we featured a quote from female fighting stand out Miesha Tate. In the quote she responds to comments made by UFC welterweight champion, Georges St-Pierre, and his views on women’s MMA.

Here is what she said:

“I think the problem with GSP’s view about WMMA is that he doesn’t have one. If he hasn’t ever watched us women fight then he can’t say how he really feels about it because he’s ignorant.

Being old fashioned is fine, but us “modern day” girls aren’t asking for your protection, we are asking for your acceptance and we are fighting for equality.

If everyone felt about MMA as GSP thinks he feels about WMMA, then he wouldn’t have a job.

I’m hoping George St. Pierre can open his mind a little bit and actually watch some women’s fights. We’re coming to the UFC for a reason and it would be nice to have one of my all-time favorite fighter’s full support.

It won’t take long for him to realize we aren’t these fragile little creatures when we enter the cage, we are warriors and every bit as deserving of respect as the men.”

Now, the star of WMMA and the lady to dethrone Tate off her Strikeforce throne, Ronda Rousey, took to twitter to respond:

  1. the original steve says:

    see these 2 missed the point. he is happy for the women that want to fight getting in the ufc. he just isn’t used to seeing a woman getting punched in the face

  2. joshua amor says:

    Why is it ignorance? He just said personally he doesn’t like to watch women fight, because it makes him uncomfortable, and he follows saying but the same can be said for men. They’re just looking for a guy to jump on, and I am no GSP fan, but they seriously need to chill. The men had to hear for years how the sport was just human **** fighting this isn’t the 50’s and 60’s give it a freaking rest.

  3. Josh says:

    These women are so stupid its unreal, u want equality in this sport? she cant ask for that when she doesn’t posses the same qualities as men do the average male will would be able to ko either one of them with a punch and would be stronger and probably faster, the fact is WMMA real talent pool is as deep as a puddle i don’t doubt shes talented but there is a reason people have looked down on this for the whole of human existence, the fact is there not built for it and it feels wrong to watch it and see a women hurt badly, be thankful for even being in the ufc u dumb bitch and the only reason there actually puttin u on there is 2 dumb down america even more and make peoples morals sink even lower, id never hit a women but somone needs give these 2 a backhanded slap and a reality check.

      You sir are an idiot, if you have ever watched women fight you would no that they are badass. The first WMMA fight I ever watched was Meisha Tate vs Zoila Frausto and it was fantastic, they are just as talented if not more so than a lot of men out there. Just because they are not the same as men does not mean they shouldn’t fight. And women fighting has nothing to do with moral degredation you fucking dumbass, if you consider the fact that throughout history women have been warriors annnnnnnndddd if you look at Lions the female lion does the hunting and the killing and the fighting. Obviously we are not lions but I think that says something about gender roles being a societal construction so shut your face and enjoy the talent in WMMA because they are here to stay.

      • W.F says:

        Yea cuz if the female lions don’t get off their ass and do the cooking, the male lions will mess them up.

      • DBKlein69 says:

        lol juggernaut sounds like such a little bitch lmao. “hey man watch what u say about women they are just as good if not better than the men!” …..yea at doing dishes maybe. u need to get laid brother. take that p*ssy off the pedastal. u come across as an extraordinarily emasculted male. maybe u were raised by a single mom, or maybe ur just a p*ssy, or
        maybe ur a chick pretending to be a guy.
        regardless, meisha tate is ur typical broad who says things for the sake of hearing herself speak. she obviously doesn’t even know what the word ‘ignorant’ means. she’s just trying to get her name out there and garner some attention for herself, albeit very negative attention.
        i’ve noticed women really want equality….except when ur out to dinner and the check comes. then all of a sudden that equality crap goes out the window. lol silly ho’s

      • DBKlein69 says:

        *emasculated

  4. B-rad says:

    Look at those chest muscles.. aint nothing feminine about that. (HURL)

  5. Well says:

    Idk I reckon shes good looking, as for Josh, get real mate these women are real fighters they aren’t dainty things you could just toss aside. Your blatant sexism is the reason women are responding like this and are totally taking GSP’s viewpoint the wrong way as the original steve and joshua amor stated.

  6. CJ says:

    GSP doesn’t like WMMA cause he is too busy dry humping men for points and decisions.

    • Guss says:

      And I’m sure that excites you doesn’t it. Gay thoughts like that, can only come from people with gay thoughts like that already swimming around in their heads. Not that there’s anything wrong with that. lol

  7. Mr Man says:

    Since Rousey will have no competition, they should do a 135lb super fight. Dominic Cruise vs Ronda Rousey. But in all seriousness, if 125lb division is hardly deep enough for UFC, how is women’s 135 supposed to survive. I think Dana just likes Rousey.

  8. itsallnonsense says:

    What are these ladies babbling about?

    GSP’s words: “It’s good for her,” St-Pierre said about Rousey’s arrival in the UFC. “I’m happy for the girls that fight, but me personally I have a hard time watching the girls fight. It’s the way I grew up maybe, the mentality, I’m different, I’m old school, but I have a hard time watching girls fighting, it’s hard for me.”

    He could of said that about a cheetah killing a gazel. It was not an attack on you ladies!

  9. dana black says:

    2 dumb bitches

  10. DARTHVADER says:

    seriously who cares what they think. He doesnt have to like watching 2 women fight.

  11. Who says:

    These girls are beautiful, sexy, funny and brave but they are just so godamn stupid. Tate getting it wrong was like alright u misunderstood what he said. Cool. But now rousey too. How can women ever think to be equal as men when they are just so dumb sometimes. Imagine if Hilary Clinton would’ve became president. Damn!
