It was a huge upset, and she said she was going to do it from the start. Miesha Tate vowed to ruin the chances of a Ronda Rousey & Holly Holm rematch, but few took her seriously. That was until she defeated the UFC Champ! Click here to read more!
Well we didn’t see that coming! When Holly Holm, 34, stepped into the ring with Miesha Tate, 29, on March 5 few imagined the challenger would end up victorious. However, with Miesha defeating the UFC champ we’re now unlikely to see Holly taking on Ronda Rousey, 29, in a rematch.
Miesha stunned Holly at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada — just four months after Holly became UFC Champion by beating Ronda. In a surprising turn of events, she submitted Holly with a rear-naked choke at 3.30 of the 5th round in their bantamweight bout.
That now means Miesha, who revealed she was planning on retiring before she was given this chance of becoming champion, is the name to beat. So, it’s more than likely SHE will be the one fighting Ronda next, should she give the former champ a chance.
Of course, Miesha had told reporters earlier this week of her plans of ruining everyone’s dream rematch of Holly and Ronda going toe-to-toe by winning her own fight. “If that’s what she wants, sorry, but I’m going to ruin that for her,” Miesha said. “If they want to make that rematch happen, that’s how I see it going down, because on Saturday, I’m going to go in there, and I’m confident I’m going to win the belt.”
Credit where credit’s due, she said she was going to do it and she did. It was hard to argue with Miesha’s surprise win and now we wonder if she’ll take on Ronda next!
