Ronda Rousey and Miesha Tate’s ongoing feud really only dates back to Spring 2012, but it feels like it’s being going on for an eternity. Even after a fight and a season of TUF, the two are still at each other’s throats.
Luckily, they’ll be able to settle things in the octagon in less than a week, when Rousey defends her women’s bantamweight title against Tate at UFC 168.
Rousey addressed the rivalry in a UFC 168 media call.
“If you’ve really noticed, I’ve never had a problem with any other opponent that I’ve ever had, if you think about it,” Rousey said. “Everyone thinks I’m this big trash talker, but who have I had a problem with, except for Miesha.”
Despite this, Rousey is viewing this bout as just another fight, not a culmination of a year long feud. Still, she’ll be happy to have it behind her.
“I want to win every single fight and they are all equally important to me no matter who it’s against, but it would be nice to not have to deal with her anymore,” she said.
UFC 168 will take place on Saturday, December 28. Rousey vs Tate will co-headline the event alongside a middleweight title fight rematch between champ Chris Weidman and Anderson Silva.
