Tate Looking For Time Off From MMA Following Kedzie Victory, Not Feeling The Passion | MMA NEWS


“I didn’t feel the passion and fire I felt in all my previous fights. I felt out of my element, I didn’t feel normal in there whatsoever. It was very strange, it was not a feeling I enjoyed and not something I want to experience again, I don’t really know what my next step is here. Even when I was when lined up with Julie, across the cage, I was like, ‘Is this really happening right now? Am I really here? Am I really in this fight?’ I felt like I was kind of just in this twilight zone. I did not like that. It’s not how I normally feel, not how emotions really run. Normally I’m excited to be there, I’m amped and pumped, and I felt little to nothing, and I mean, she literally elbowed me and got my lip really good and I was like ‘ehh, whatever.’ She kicked me in the face, ‘ehh, whatever,’ It was not, it wasn’t a normal circumstance for me I don’t know why that is but I’m asking myself a lot of questions. I think I need to take a step back, relax a minute, and evaluate it. I need to find a way to fire myself up again and get that passion, because I know there’s so much I still want to accomplish in MMA. I absolutely want to fight Ronda Rousey twice, but at this point, you know, mentally and emotionally, I’m not right. I shouldn’t be getting into the cage if I’m not going into it wholeheartedly for this fight. It’s hard for me to admit that, but that’s the honest truth. I didn’t feel like it for this fight like I did for other fights. I don’t know how to explain that, I guess it’s something I just have to figure out at this point.”

In a recent appearance on “The MMA Hour” former Strikeforce bantamweight champion, Miesha Tate, explains her mindset in the lead up and during her fight last Saturday against Julie Kedzie.

    … It aint for everybody…

  2. Not You says:

    As soon as she entered the cage her elbow started itching.

  3. Xaninho says:

    Tate didn’t like her face all busted up. She was covering her face with her hair afterwards. Kedzie caused a lot of damage with those nasty elbows.

    • Jake from State Farm says:

      Yeah I saw that in the post fight conference she jessica rabbit’d her hair and you could notice the other side of her face wasn’t swollen and the ohter half did.

  4. Kandace says:
