Ariel:

“You said you would shoot yourself in the face if you lost this fight via armbar… Would you really do that?”

Nice.

I can’t help but think that Miesha is fooling herself if she thinks she can get a KO against Ronda. It would be awesome if she did but she’s a small 135 and its just physics…she just doesn’t seem to have the power it would take to KO Ronda.

Seriously Tate is already gamed. She is fake and that was Rousey’s basis for treating her with disrespect. So off the bat Tate gets in there that Rhonda is fake. The funny thing is that Meisha didn’t catch Ariel implying that maybe the problem is with Meisha and not Rousey by stating that Rhonda is most other times in a great mood just only not around Meisha and ding dong Tate goes no that’s the only way I see her, DUH . . .

I still really hope Ronda kicks Tate’s ass into retirement. For all the hate Ronda gets… Tate is 10x more annoying and a big douche. She is not a good image for womens MMA

Tate is frickin dreaming if she thinks she’s going to KO Rousey. Honestly, her best bet is the RNC. Rousey has yet to adjust her ground game to mma and Judoka always give up their backs. Honestly, Tate’s strikes are not strong enough to KO Rousey and she’s most likely just going to end up getting armbarred. Ronda still locks up like shes wearing a gi and still does the scarf hold choke from the ground, that’s the only time she’s susceptible to getting her back taken. Also, Rousey’s striking is extremely underdeveloped as well, so if her taiotoshi or uchimata or haraigoshi is stuffed, it’s going to be a long night. But yea she’ll probably win in the first damn round.

Love both these guys did a great job of making a very one sided fight on paper into something most people cant wait to see. Ronda is my favourite female figher has been since day 1. Saying all that this fight takes very much a second to the Spiders revenge, can not wait!

Tate has already been waiting to KO Ronda since before their first match.
Same talk.

Well I don’t see tate winning but hope she does. I don’t like either girl especially rhonda “full of herself” rousey. Wow rhonda you speak your mind your brave,get over yourself. They both are fake. Trying to do their little dumb pose for weigh ins and putting on their little acts. Thats what I don’t like about some women in MMA,they pay too much attention to the way they come across and look. Lets hope cyborg or cat get their chance to shut arrogant rousey’s big mouth.

She keeps saying she made a mental mistake with Ronda but what about Cat beating your face in to what happened there, this bitc h makes more god damn excuses than anybody i have ever seen. She says the ref stopped her last fight early but if she had not stopped it she would have had to have plastic surgery because Cat f_ucked her face up it looked like she stuck her head in a hornets nest. Is this the first time somebody gets a title shot coming off a loss ?

There are so many ways to wjn via choke or armbar for judokas.so if ronda can catch misha then there is no chance for miesha to win.

If (or should I say “when”?) Rousey gets a hold of her arm, I fear there could be serious damage if Tate does not tap instantly. I can almost hear the ligaments tearing. Rousey by armbar in the first round….and there won’t be any suicide. A pink slip is probably just one more loss down the road for Tate.

Rousey was annoying and childish on the show, but Tate seems like a spoiled brat as well. She criticizes Ronda for the short amount of time she’s been in MMA, but meanwhile Rousey has been doing martial arts competitively since Miesha was still playing with barbies. She’s been injured many times in a combat sport, which counts for a lot in my books even though judo doesn’t allow strikes. She tore through her MMA competition via first round wins. Tate was not a good champion to say that Rousey didn’t deserve a title shot. Then Ronda breaks her arm, the same way she’s won all her fights. That’s humiliating. Then Tate couldn’t even win her title contention match against Cat Zingano. If anyone doesn’t deserve a title shot, it’s her. Don’t get me wrong, I kinda like Miesha and I think she’s hot, but she doesn’t have that much KO power in my opinion. I can’t really see her knocking Ronda out. I’ve never seen Rousey go into the late rounds, so I’m interested to see if she can go 5 rounds. I think Tate’s best chance is if her cardio is better and Rousey gasses late. Rousey is like the female Palhares. She’s trained submission grappling her whole life to the point that it’s muscle memory, and her body type is so perfect for what she wants to do. She’s so physically strong for her size, that no matter if you train for what you think she’s going to try to do, she can still do it because the act of physically stopping her is just so difficult. It’s fine to train it with someone else doing it, but that someone else doesn’t do it the same way as Rousey or as well. I just hope that if Ronda submits Miesha, she acts graceful and humble and let’s the rivalry die and not flip her the bird and act all cocky. No idiot would give Tate 3 shots at the title after 2 defeats unless she really stayed in that weight class and won all her fights to the point where there was no other choice.

@Jasonfn22

Miesha Tate has won via KO head kick against Sarah Oriza in CageSport MMA in 2009, as well as winning via TKO twice in the past.

But mostly she has won via submissions (3 chokes, 4 armbars)

Call me crazy, but i can see tate winning by strikes.. If this fight gets out of the 1st round, i can see ronda slowing down and tate teeing off on her. I know it sounds almost hard to believe, but i’m picking Tate to win by strikes (TKO) if the fight gets to the secound round or third. 1st round might as well go to ronda because she’s proven time and time again that she can finish all her fights in the 1st with ease.

@ sevendayman well, as we have seen time and time again, anything can happen. Although Ronda had Tate on the defensive the whole time until she caught her, it was a fast-paced action-packed fight the first time around. If Tate can avoid being submitted for the first round, like you said, she might have a chance, getting all slippery from sweat and all.
But as another commenter implied, this may be a one-sided fight that the hype machine twisted into looking like actual competition for Rousey just to sell tickets. We don’t know so that is why we watch, I guess.
