Ronda Rousey was recently named Sports Illustrated’s “most dominant athlete in sports”, but Miesha Tate thinks someone else should have deserved the title.
It’s no secret that Miesha Tate and Ronda Rousey don’t get along. Their rivalry started in Strikeforce and was taken to another level when they were coaching against each other on “The Ultimate Fighter”. Tate explains to SB Nation why she thought Rousey shouldn’t have received Sports Illustrated’s label.
“I don’t know if that’s an accurate statement. I think there are a lot of athletes in the world”, Tate said. “Maybe someone who took a gold medal at the Olympics could be considered more ‘dominant’, you know?”
Tate continued, “In different sports it’s hard to compare because we have a fighting sport, versus someone who maybe does swimming or something. An athlete is still an athlete so it’s hard to compare the apples and the oranges because they’re different things, so I don’t know if I agree entirely on that.”
