Miesha Tate made the trek to Brazil this past week to rediscover her passion for fighting, get back to basics, and hit the reset button.

It's been 229 days since Ronda Rousey walked the walk inside Nationwide Arena in downtown Columbus, Ohio, following weeks of talking the talk.

Then-champ Tate succumbed to the same fate as the former Olympic bronze-medal-winning judoka's previous seven adversaries: defeat via first round armbar.

Looks like Ronda took her heart that night along with her arm

She must have not contemplated to long, because she did have that war with Julie Kedize.

Her real reason for her taking a year off now is the fact that she didn't run through Kedzie.

There's no shame in a back-in-fourth war in MMA. Julie is a seasoned vet fighting out of Jackson's MMA, the only people who thought Tate would run through her were fanboys and hype eaters.


She's deserves a year off, I think anyone who has a belt and loses it should take at least eight months to rebuild.
