The tension between former UFC women’s bantamweight title challengers Miesha Tate and Bethe Correia is continuing to build.
While Tate stated prior to Ronda Rousey’s loss at UFC 193 that she may be forced to retire if there was no way for her to earn another title shot against Rousey, with Holly Holm being the champion, Tate seems to be back in the mix of top-ranked women’s bantamweights.
Tate spoke on Inside MMA to discs a potential bout with Correia:
“She’s just really been annoying, honestly, and for the longest time I’ve kind of just ignored it. I didn’t really think she was worth my time, but I thought that after Ronda shut her up she would maybe get the point that she shouldn’t act like that and act so ignorant. Obviously she didn’t, so if that’s the fight she wants, I’d be willing to step in there and teach her a lesson. Obviously, she needs a more brutal beatdown than the one Ronda gave her.”
