Miesha Tate is just a few days away from her women’s bantamweight title fight against current champion Holly Holm, which takes place in the UFC 196 pay-per-view (PPV) co-main event on Sat., March 5, 2016 inside MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
But that doesn’t mean she’s opposed to a rematch between Holm and Ronda Rousey later this year. Unfortunately for them, it won’t be for the division strap, because “Cupcake” will be leaving “Sin City” with the title in tow.
Tate talks to ESPN:
“I wanna see the rematch too, at some point, I think everybody does. As a fan of the sport myself, I would love to see that. When I go in there and win the belt on Saturday, that’s probably gonna throw a wrench in the mix, so they can either put the trilogy together between Ronda and myself, with me as the champion, or they can make a non-title bout between Holly and Ronda, whatever they prefer, but I just wanna go in there on March 5 and win the belt.”
Also known as the “crazy fucking love triangle.”
Holm trashed Rousey at UFC 193 last November to claim the crown, but looked rather average in her two UFC fights that preceded it. I’m sure Tate is hoping that earlier version of “The Preacher’s Daughter” shows up this weekend. If not, this could get ugly.
