Rebney Rebuts Tate Rant, Explains Decision For Gurgel Placement | MMA NEWS

Yesterday afternoon we released a statement from Miesha Tate firing off at the Bellator promotion for putting their female champ on the undercard of this Friday’s event.

The Bellator boss, Bjorn Rebney, responded through MMA Fighting shortly after and here it is:

“Zoila’s been plagued by injury after injury over the last 19 months, having not fought since March, 2011. We felt that the best road back for her did not include rushing her into a major fight against one of the top-ranked women in the world. This is not a world title fight as it’s made significantly north of the 115 weight limit where she holds our title. Depending on how Zoila feels and performs on Friday, we can then determine the next appropriate step back.”

    Interesting that he answers this way. And yet other high profile fighters coming off an injury and quickly catapulted into ATLEAST main card or prelim ON TV. So what gives?! I seriously hope it’s not a female issue of his. Douchebag Rebney

    This isnt the first time Rebney has pulled this shit on Zoila he billed a fight with 2 women that she had beaten as the number 1 and number 2 female fighters. Bjorn is an idiot

      Too bad you are the only one that thinks Frausto beat Megumi and Agulair. FRausto got her ass handed to her in both those fights. Besides she has been out for 2 years and that EASILY puts Agulair and mUgumi ahead of her in rankings by light years. Frusto will be lucky to make 125lbs she walksa round at around 150.
