Miesha TateMiesha Tate is the Strikeforce women’s bantamweight champion, but for whatever reason, it seems that upstart Ronda Rousey is the one garnering the lion’s share of the attention heading into the main event showdown at Strikeforce: Tate vs. Rousey on March 3 in Columbus, Ohio.

Tate has openly questioned Rousey’s credibility in getting a title shot in his first fight at bantamweight, especially when she’s only had four professional fights on her resume. She does, however, realize this is a fight that excites fans and will likely draw more of them to favor women’s mixed martial arts.

“I believe that’s this fight at this point. Regardless of Ronda’s record, nevertheless, I feel like she’s still going to be a challenge,” Tate told MMAWeekly.com’s Damon Martin in an exclusive interview.

Tate isn’t one to hold her tongue, however. She openly despises Rousey and how she got the title shot.

“I feel she’s pretty much talked her way into this fight,” said Tate. “I think she still had one or two more fights before she earned a spot. She’s next in line, but she’s not the No. 1 contender.

“She’s gonna get what she asked for, but I don’t think she’s gonna want it.”

    Meisha Tate always looks like she just smelled a skunk. crooked nose doesn’t help the face much. Tate is average for MMA and look for Rhonda to win easily. at least fans won’t be subjected of 25 minutes of watching the boring pale plain Sara kaufman in the main event. Tate will smell defeat.

    Sara Kaufman will destroy woman’s MMA if she was on TV alot. Boring-plain looking-dull and extremely lethargic. Fans want talent and personality and looks from the woman. even the man chris cyborg was hard to stomach and was disgusting.

    Miss Miesha can win this fight with solid wrestling, and submission defense. GO MIESHA!

      BAHAHA sounds like Kaufman shot you down loser! Why do you keep commenting to yourself about Kaufman?!? Just b/c you got rejected & you still haven’t kissed a girl yet, get over it. You sad “LIL” jello cock!

      I’m sure Kaufman is MUCH MUCH better off than some loser keyboard moron wannabe like you “alhmiel”? Were you drunk when you typed your lame ass name?

      IDIOT!

        lol, Well Said !

  • alhmiel

    Just keep Sara Kaufman out of the prime time events as she is way to ugly and dull for ratings. If Strikeforce wants to lose viewers then headline the pale pasty Kaufman which won’t happen. Carano-Rousey-Tate will attract viewers and keep woman’s MMA alive. Half men like Cyborg and Plain Jane sara will drive fans away. Word!!!

  • alhmiel

    sounds like Mr. Kaufman is upset. How about investing in some dental work a complete make over and a tanning booth for that milk skinned plain Jane. Plastic surgery could be wise. Carano-Tate-Rousey are what sells if woman are to make it in MMA.

    Ayone who thinks theres anything wrong with the way Tate looks has craved a **** at least once in their life !

  • alhmiel

    Tate smells a skunk look at her face.
