MMA: Miesha Tate Addresses “Delusional” Ronda Rousey (Video)

Strikeforce’s Women’s Bantamweight Champion Miesha Tate had choice words for her March 3rd opponent, Ronda Rousey, while making an appearance on HDNet’s Inside MMA last night.

Tate called the judo expert and Olympic medalist “delusional” following comments Rousey has made on Twitter and in the press. reports the champion as telling the programme:

I don’t really listen to much of anything that Ronda says. I don’t watch her interviews. I get a little bit of that drift that comes through Twitter. When people say, ‘Oh, you know she said this, she said that.’ Half the time, I honestly think it just makes her sound like an idiot. I mean, that’s just being brutally honest. I think she’s pretty delusional. I have yet to see Ronda actually fight. I’ve seen her go out there and do her Judo and whatnot. But she hasn’t ever actually brought a fight and that’s what I’m gonna make her do…fight. Anything that she says is motivation, definitely.

Additionally, Tate addressed the fight, saying she felt fans were going to be entertained:

That’s why this fight makes for an interesting match up, because our strengths are in similar areas. We’re both really great on the ground. I have wrestling, she has judo. I also feel like I have the edge on the feet and the experience overall. I’ve been doing this a lot longer. I feel like I’ll be able to put it together better. When it comes to mixing everything and meshing it, it’s gonna make for an awesome fight. I think people are really gonna enjoy and be entertained.
