Tate Thinks Rousey vs. Carano Is A Joke Based On Looks

“I really feel that it’s just kind of a joke. It really is. Gina was a great fighter, and she’s a beautiful women. Ronda is a great fighter, and she’s an attractive girl. But to say that Gina should be able to come in after five years of nothing and take on arguably the best female fighter ever? Come on.

“Women’s MMA has been working to legitimize ourselves for so long, and we finally broke the ice, we’re finally in the UFC, and we’re getting some credibility. Don’t take that away by putting a fight together that is based entirely on looks and has little to nothing to do with skill set.”

“The only thing that drives that is they’re both attractive. It makes the women’s title hold no value. It makes it look like it’s a joke and they just put whatever’s going to sell. If we’re going to really legitimize women’s MMA as a sport and have it respected as a sport, then you have to treat it as such.”

In a recent interview with MMAJunkie.com Radio, Miesha Tate dove deep on the Rousey vs. Carano talk.

‘Cupcake’ made her motives clear throughout the course of the chatter, making it known that she wished to welcome Carano back to the UFC.
