Miesha Tate One-Ups Ronda Rousey, Says She’d Fight Cyborg At Catchweight

5

Demetrious Johnson and Miesha Tate took part in a UFC Fight Club Q&A in Manila prior to UFC Fight Night 66 this weekend, but it was “Cupcake” Tate who stole the show with her headline-grabbing comments.

Tate, who up until this point has been Ronda Rousey’s biggest career rival, one-upped the UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion when the topic of Cristiane “Cyborg” Justino came up.

Rousey has remained adamant that she will fight Cyborg — but only if Cyborg can make 135 pounds, refusing to fight her at a catchweight, which is what Justino has been campaigning for.

Tate, on the other hand, claims she would have no problem meeting Cyborg in the middle.

“That’s my job. I have to fight anyone they put in front of me and obviously I’m not scared of anyone,” said Tate. “So yes, I would (fight her at catchweight).”

Tate clarified, “But I heard Cyborg is signed to fight at 135, so I would prefer to fight her in my weight class. If they had a 125, I’d like to go down, but they don’t, so it’s 135 for me.”

First, Tate must get past Jessica Eye, who she meets in the co-main event of UFC On FOX 16, which takes place on Saturday, July 25, 2015 at the Allstate Arena in Chicago, Illinois.
