What Ronda Rousey, Miesha Tate Have In Common (Photos)

July 9, 2013

Anderson Silva getting Boise State’d on Saturday was the second-biggest story to come out of Saturday’s UFC 162. I’m locked in on the announcement that December’s UFC 168 will pit the UFC’s first women’s champion Ronda Rousey against Miesha Tate.

When Rousey and Tate last tangled, Rousey armbarred Tate and took her arm where it's not supposed to go.

You would think getting your arm ripped from its socket would be enough humble pie for one lifetime. But that’s not the case for Tate.

"It’s never too early to train and practice that gameplan over and over and over, I’m going to beat it into my skull if I have to," Tate said. "Swear to God, she’s not going to armbar me if it’s the last thing I do. I will seriously shoot myself in the face before I leave that cage if she armbars me again. It can’t happen."

For all of the hate between Rousey and Tate, the two fighters have a lot in common. For example, they are both models in the only issue of ESPN the Magazine people ever read.
