Former Strikeforce women’s bantamweight champ Miesha Tate has finally admitted what many already figured – Ronda Rousey tore her arm up. Tate has remained pretty silent on the loss to Rousey earlier this year, but those that watched how “Rowdy” bent her arm the wrong way knew “Takedown” was in for some rehab.
Since the loss, Tate has gone to the doctor and had plenty of exams done on her arm. She said at the time that the arm was not broken but avoided specifics beyond that single note. While she still isn’t handing out detailed information the 25-year old has shed some more light on her limb.
“I basically tore everything. I tore the inner and outer sides of my ligaments attached to the muscles and bone,” said Tate while being interviewed during last weekend’s Invicta FC card. “They actually pulled the bone off with the ligament and then I tore all the muscles around that. So…it was pretty bad, but you know, for me, it wasn’t really that bad.”
Tate added that she is scheduled to visit the doctor again and hopes that she will be cleared to return to action in the coming months.
