Miesha Tate: Ronda Rousey is way more talk than anything elsePosted on February 21, 2012, 06:14 PM by Joey Santosus
"It's interesting how Rhonda is always talking about how I won't make eye contact with her. Personally, I think it just pisses her off because I won't give her the time of day and she's obviously the type of person that likes to be the center of attention. But, when push came to shove and it came time to make eye contact, I just think it's funny that Rhonda is always the first one to break eye contact. I definitely felt like I saw right through her, and she's way more talk than anything else. I'm not intimidated by all of the trash talk and I'm definitely not buying into it all." - Miesha Tate
Miesha Tate has glared deep into the eyes of her upcoming challenger, and according to the champ, she's not buying what Ronda Rousey is selling. Just 4-0 in her short professional career, Rousey harnessed the power of the media to aid her quest for a title shot. Though her trash-talking campaign has since paid dividends in the form of a scheduled showdown with Tate, "Takedown" says that after coming face to face with her less experienced opponent, she suspects talking is Rousey's primary talent.
So, what's the word LowKick'ers? With the fate of Women's MMA possibly hanging in the balance, will "Rowdy" make good on her words, or will the California native prove to more bark than bite?
