    • RHendO says:

      why she had several seconds to Tap out it was her choice

      • mmaislandjunkie says:

        yup, it aint the officials fault tate was a dumb bitchh.

        • Nicky Francis says:

          Was Big Nog a dumb bitch when Mir actually broke his arm?
          Miesha Tate is a tough SOB in my book.

        • Nicky Francis says:

          Really, if it was a male fighter, we’d all be singing his praises. And we have over and over. “He’d rather suffer gross physical injury then admit defeat, what a warrior!”

          A man and a woman has got to know their limitations as Clint says, her stupidity may cost her a career.

        • Dave says:

          This is a business not a video game live to fight another day or take yourself out in one fight in your prime it’s just basic common sense

        • McLovin says:

          Not really. When Big Nog let Frank Mir break his arm I was thinking the same thing. Dumbass should have tapped.

    • bruts says:

      i guess you forgot that when these fighters step in a cage, THEY SIGN A DEATH WAVER, so if they die, or seriously get hurt, its not strikeforces OR the refs fault… get in tune with mma yah idiot.. these rules have been in place FOR ALONG TIME you new or someshit?

    • says:

      I personally think it was a combination of both the Ref and Tate – Tate should have tapped a little bit earlier, but at the same time I think the ref, who’s there for the safety of the fighters in the first place when they are too punch drunk or stupid to protect themselves intelligently, should’ve stopped it a hair sooner. If you watch the ref closely during the video he’s only watching Tate’s tapping hand and face, not paying any attention at all to the actual arm. if he were looking at the arm periodically during those few seconds he might’ve been able to stop it before it dislocated her arm. Especially since Rousey was already known for doing that to other fighters.

  3. Rocky says:

    Damn Miesha, Was it worth it now? She knows what happens when she doesn’t tap.

  4. Dude says:

    Just like condit

  5. Dave says:

    Tate proved she’s not a pro because out of pride she failed to protect her body probably her pussy boyfriend talking shit was part of the reason she was ashamed to tap.
