Miesha Tate är förmodligen en av de som blev mest glad när Holly Holm segrade mot Ronda Rousey under UFC 193 i Australien.
Nu ser Tate fram emot att få en ny chans på bältet och här berättar hon varför de två borde möta varandra härnäst.
Det här berättar, Tate, via ”MMAMania”:
Here’s why I think the fight with Holly and I makes sense: for one, I haven’t ever fought Holly before. For two, I was Ronda’s biggest challenge until Holly so obviously I’ve proven that I’m a standout in the division and so is Holly. If Holly would beat me, then they could still set up that great rematch that they want between her and Ronda. If I beat Holly then I’m 5-0 and I beat the girl who beat Ronda, what better case could they ever make to have me fight Ronda again? I think that fight sells itself.
Tate tycker att det inte borde vara någon fråga om vem som ska få nästa match, speciellt när man inte vet när Rousey kommer att komma tillbaka.
The only reason I didn’t get that title shot was because I had fought Ronda twice already. That was it. Other than that, I am the No. 1 contender. I’ve been the No. 1 contender and I worked my ass off to get to be the No. 1 contender. In my mind, I think this fight should go to me in the mean time in maybe three months and then as Ronda’s filming her movie and getting what she needs to get to recover. I think for Ronda’s first fight back, if she wants it to be a title shot, I think that it should be because I think she’s earned that. The thing is she’s going to be out too long and I’m ready to go and I think Holly’s ready to go so let’s set it up in the mean time. When Ronda comes back she’ll have a quality champion to face.
