Miesha Tate vs. Ronda Rousey title fight slated for March 3rd Strikeforce eventPosted on January 5, 2012, 10:07 AM by Anton Gurevich
According to MMAWeekly.com, Miesha Tate (12-2) will return to the Strikeforce cage against no other than "The Queen of Armbars" Ronda Rousey (4-0). The fight will take place on March 3rd, at the Nationwide Arena in Columbus, Ohio.
Rousey is currently 4-0 in her Mixed Martial Arts campaign, finishing every single one of her fights via a highlight reel armbar. Officially nicknamed "Rowdy", Ronda Rousey has a strong background in Judo, with 3 Gold Medals in Pan-American games, Silver Medal in 2007 World Championships, and a Bronze Medal in Beijing 2008.
Rousey heavily campaigned for a fight with Tate, calling out the reigning Strikeforce Women's Bantamweight Champion on several occasions. Miesha Tate responded to the challenge stating that Rousey is yet to prove she has what it takes to become a champion, adding that the #1 contender spot should go to Sarah Kaufman. However, it looks like the Strikeforce CEO Scott Coker decided otherwise.
