“I think people have finally gotten to see both sides of the story now, and have been able to see both of our personalities. I think people have had kind of a rude awakening as far as she goes. For the longest time I thought people didn’t understand the reason it was damn near impossible for me to get along with Ronda. She has even admitted it herself that she is the one who started it. I didn’t have a problem with her. When I first saw her fight I thought this chick looks pretty legit. But it was the way she called me out and the way she was so disrespectful before I had even met her that really turned me off to her.” (PHOTO CREDIT: Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports)
UFC bantamweight champ Ronda Rousey was a fan-favorite entering the Ultimate Fighter 18. However, opinions on Rousey have since been soured based on her behavior during the show where she was overly emotional at times and lacked a lot of sportsmanship in regards to rival Miesha Tate. Tate recently spoke to UFC.com about how things unfolded on TUF 18, the reason she was so determined to maintain professionalism rather than let her personal feelings take over, and why she expects a different result in their rematch at UFC 168.
