Tate Blames Adrenaline Dump for Rousey Loss, Would Fight Ronda 100 More Times

€œI felt like sh*t, to put it quite frankly. Watching it again, I looked better than I felt, but I really had to push myself because I felt horrible. I was trying to push out of first gear but it didn’€™t really happen. I did a lot of good things defensively but I wasn’€™t able to do some of the offensive things that we worked on… I told Dana White that I’d fight her as many times as he’€™d let me. €œI don’€™t care if I fought her 100 times and I lost the first 99 of them. I would fight her 100 times, as many times as they let me. If she beats me nine times out of 10, that might be the reality of it, but I would be game to fight her any day at any time they’€™d let me.”

In a recent interview with Fox Sports, Tate expressed her opinion regarding her recent loss to UFC Champ, Ronda Rousey. According to the report, Tate also revealed having an adrenaline dump before her co-main event fight at UFC 168. Tate described herself as being in a state of “relaxation” when she needed to be “explosive”. The former Strikeforce champ also voiced her opinion about the post fight hand shake that didn’t happen, despite Tate being the first to offer her hand.

“That was my respect for her as an athlete… Now that [the fight]’€™s over, you won’€™t see me trying to shake her hand anytime soon.”

    how about next time don’t try to grapple with her, that was really bad game planning, should have just tried to stand up, instead she got ragdolled

  2. RogerThat says:

    1-3 in the UFC and finished in all 3 losses. She needs to worry less about Rhonda and worry more about staying relevant at all.

  3. Phil Asophical says:

    of course you would fight her 99 more times., It may take that many before you could beat her. No more excuses please.

  4. Jonte Ponte says:

    Maybe her bf Scaredaway elbowed the adrenaline out of her. Thats his skill it seems

  5. Pain says:

    Hey Miesha! I don’t think they can produce prosthetic arms fast enough for you to fight her that often. Move on.

  6. Xaninho says:

    She gets mauled by any of the top 10 girls as well, so she should worry about her ability to beat top 10 instead of the champ. Tate doesn’t have what it takes. A smug grin and passive-aggressiveness isn’t enough.
