Miesha Tate Strikeforce
A nasty armbar submission courtesy of new Strikeforce champion Ronda Rousey has landed former title holder Miesha Tate on indefinite suspension from the Ohio Athletic Commission.

As the fight came to a close, Tate’s arm literally bent around backwards while Rousey was trying to force the submission.

Now according to the Ohio Athletic Commission, Tate will be under indefinite suspension until she gets clearance from an orthopedist on her left arm.

A few other fighters including Ronaldo ‘Jacare’ Souza also fell under indefinite suspensions following the event. Souza told MMAWeekly.com on Saturday that he believed his hand was broken, and he’ll have to get doctor’s clearance before heading back to the cage later this year.

    Now Tate’s are looks as hideous as her nose.

      Make that arm.

    She damn near ripped her arm off. She probably tore tendons and muscles.

    Tap or snap as they say.

    Meisha can now get a nose job as they fix her arm. that goose honker on tate is enormous. I still want to see Rousey beat on tate’s wimp boyfriend or let Nick Diaz do it. One arm tate will have a nice long recovery.

    Sara Kaufman was suspended for being too plain dull and milky and boring. Strikeforce is sending Sara out for a complete makeover which would take years. don’t they have dentists in Canada? braces? Tanning booths?

      Dude, I think you’ve got real issues. You’re literally obsessed with Kaufman being butt ugly. So what? It’s not foxy boxing, it’s mma. By definition, you are unlikely to be attractive if you’re an mma professional due to excessive punches to the face. But seriously, what’s the problem? My guess is cyborg gave you her full 9 inches and you’ve walked funny ever since.

        Lol, no joke man. I’ve been arguing with this fool about how little looks should matter for a professional fighter and his only comback is “Why do you think women’s boxing is non existant? How dumb are you?? blah blah blah”

    I get them needing the time off, but I hate how its officially announced as a “suspension.” Makes me feel like they did something wrong lol

    If I was meisha tate I would be more concerned about getting that honker straightened up and reduced first then worry about the arm later on. Walking around like a pelican smelling a skunk isn’t cool.
