At UFC 168, Miesha Tate will have a second opportunity to defeat the most prominent women’s mixed martial arts fighter on the planet: Ronda Rousey. The two fought before over a year ago under the Strikeforce banner, and it didn’t work out so well for Tate; Rousey dislocated her arm in the first round via armbar. This time though, Tate thinks it’s going to be different.
At a recent UFC 168 media conference call, Tate shared her thoughts on the hype surrounding Rousey, and why she thinks she’s going to win in their highly anticipated rematch:
“There are always weaknesses in her game. I think a lot of people have built Ronda up to be this invincible person and that there’s no way that she can be beaten. But, I don’t see it that way at all. I see a lot of holes in her game and I see a lot of ways she can be exploited. But, just because it hasn’t happened yet, doesn’t mean it won’t ever happen.”
Although Tate didn’t explain what those weaknesses were, she did seem determined enough to exploit them.
UFC 168 will takes place on December 28th at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
