SD: Miesha stated that she felt she was winning until you caught her with the second armbar. What's your take on this?

RR: I don't think there's any way she could argue that she was winning that fight at all. If you just look at the striking stats, I landed 43 strikes and she landed 11. If you look at the actual damage, she was bruised up on her leg and her face, not to mention her arm. The only point in the fight where she could say she was being the least bit dominant, is the part where she had my back, but she definitely landed fewer strikes from the back, and had zero submission attempts. The one time she tried to do something, she lost her position immediately. That wasn't a dominant position for her, that was pretty much her holding on for dear life. Every single takedown was me, I had the majority of the strikes, and I got the win. This all happened in four minutes, and if she assumes that the few seconds that she had my back, that she was the winner...well she wasn't doing anything productive there anyway, except prolonging the inevitable.

SD: Miesha said during her interview that you didn't really prove much during your fight. How do you feel about that statement?

RR: It just kind of makes her sound dumb. Everyone knows that I wanted to armbar her, and there was nothing she could do to stop me, even with months of preparation. I think that proves a lot. It's like she's not even looking at the actual situation. I don't know what match she was watching, to really think that. One of those pieces of advice that my mom tells me all the time is, 'Never listen to your own press.' The second I got out of that cage, my coach was already telling me a million things I did wrong. It just seems tome like she must be surrounded by a bunch of "yes men" all the time, saying stuff like, 'Oh yeah, you were winning. You were totally dominating.' If I was her, I would look at that match, look at what I did wrong, and try to fix it next time, and not be like 'I was totally winning before I lost.'

This statement couldn't be more true. I can't believe Meisha is stupid enough to keep running her mouth after that loss. IMO, Rousey can still improve, being as early into her MMA career as she is. Meisha, probably not so much. I mean, based on her recent statements, I think it's fair to assume Tate has a learning disability.

I guess Wrasslin' with the boys in high school didn't improve Meesha's intelligence any.

I'll have to file Tate's comments in the "grasping at straws" file.

I once submitted 3 guys in a grappling tourney with triangles. In the finals the dude said all I had was a triangle so I showed him what its like to get knee bared. Just cause someone is unreal at one move doesn't mean thats all they have.

It makes me wonder if Rousey could tap Tate's boyfriend.

Oh don't get me wrong it was a local tourny and it was in the intermedate division. By no means was it ADCC lol. I wish I had the time to train like I used to but work is too demanding anymore. GROWING UP SUCKS

It's fine if Tate is just saying things like that to get a rematch, if she's truly believes that, she must be seeing the fight in Cecil's Peoples' view.
