In what has to be one of the most anticipated women’s title fights since Cris Cyborg met Gina Carano in 2009, Strikeforce bantamweight women’s champion Miesha Tate will meet former Olympic medalist Ronda Rousey for the title on March 3 in Columbus, OH.

Miesha's way of talking about this fight has made me not like her at all.

I couldn't agree more! As if she accused Rousey of using her sexuality to get the shot. This coming from a girl who has pictures of her butt all over the net. Rousey by first round sub making me, Gene LeBell and millions everywhere very happy!

Call me crazy but I will pick Tate all day long, especially after she destroyed Coenan! I would not pick a rookie/one trick having fighter over Tate who has good standard up wrestling submissions strength and cardio.

Dude, I have zero idea what conversations you have seen, but I have talked with Miesha about this almost extensively and that's not been her issue at all. You're using like 5 different conversations that she's had with Rousey and Kaufman and trying to combine them into one wholesale approach when it's simply not the case.

i think ill go with rousey. she's new to the sport but she's got the skill-set as well as the experience of being in a much bigger competition, i.e. the Olympics. as much as all of us hardcore mma fans think this is a big deal, theres hundreds of millions of people in the united states that have no idea this is even going to happen. ill take rousey by sub.

I'm with you tbh. I want Rousey to win but this is a case of too much too soon in my opinion

I will be rooting for Rousey to snap Meisha's arm, for sure. In an interview before her fight with Coenen last year, Tate said she wanted to beat Marloes so bad that the ref would fear for Marloes' life.

That is not the statement of an athlete I'll get behind. I have never liked her, or her personality. Judging by some of these comments, I am not alone. I could go on, but I don't want to go from stating my opinion to fighter bashing.

This will be a hard fight for Rousey. I hope she Feeds Tate some humble pie, preferably in the form of a broken arm.

Rousey via combat experience, strength and hotness.

WAR ROWDY!

I love the nickname "The Arm Collector"
...and the fact that none of Ronda's 4 pro fights have lasted a minute
...and that they've all ended by armbar
...and that she's hot
...and that everyone knows what she's going to try when the fight happens...it's up to Tate to stop it.

So it may be too much too soon...but I can't say that I care with all of the above going on.

I thought Rousey's nickname was "Rowdy" ?


In any case, WAR ROUSEY!
