One thing I've gathered over the past few weeks of the hype build-up for this fight? Miesha Tate comes off as reeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeally whiney.

I thought Miesha was over the whole "she doesn't deserve it" thing. It makes her sound so bad, yet I don't think she realizes it. Talk trash all you want, but a champion doesn't pick and choose their opponents...so there's no point in even talking about it, unless you're trying to do just that.

Absolutely.

Rousey deserves it simply because she's the one putting butts in seats and selling the fight. Miesha seems content to remain in obscurity fighting the likes of Jane Doe.

I think what it boils down to is the fact that Miesha was wanting/hoping for easy fights so she can hold on to her belt for a while. Not going to happen, imo.

I can see Ronda squashing it when it's all said and done. Miesha on the other hand...I think she's a grudge holder.

Love it. Used to be big on collecting cards when I was 10-14 but fell out of it in my older years. It's awesome seeing someone like her admit to her nerdy side.
