Miesha Tate suffered a nasty Armbar loss to new Strikeforce women’s bantamweight champ Ronda Rousey this past weekend in the main event of Strikeforce: Tate vs. Rousey. After the loss Tate stayed on the mat inside the cage for several minutes, as Rousey bent her arm in an unnatural way causing what appeared to be some sort of serious damage to the limb.
However, the former title-holder has since revealed no bones were broken, though still needs to find out if any further damage was incurred and will get more testing done in the near future.
“I had X-rays last night,” wrote Tate, in a message to MMAFighting. “No bones are broken, which I already knew. Other than that, I have to get an MRI to find out anything further.”
Even with no broken bones, it would appear highly probable that Tate has some sort of ligament damage to the arm based on it being bent nearly completely back the wrong way by the Olympian. Medical suspensions from the show will likely be announced in the coming weeks.
