Although she’s new to the MMA game, Ronda Rousey has a 4-0 win streak, all of which have come by armbar. Most would think Strikeforce bantamweight champ Miesha Tate would be mainly working on her armbar defense coming up to this fight, but Tate says she isn’t worried about it.
“I’m not really that worried about the armbar. I think the biggest mistake I could make is focusing on what Ronda is going to do or what she can do versus what I’m going to do and what I can do.
I think it would be a big rookie mistake on my part to be training only armbar defense every single day. I’m not training to be in that position, I’m training to impose my will and my game plan which absolutely never involves being in an armbar.”
In the gym, Tate says she’s been more focused on her own game plan than worrying about what Rousey has in store for her.
“I’ve been really focused on implementing what I’m going to do and not too worried about what she’s going to do. I want to be proactive instead of reactive.
I haven’t seen much more than what we’ve seen inside a minute. I’m sure Ronda has more than just an armbar. I’ve never been a believer that she’s only a one trick pony. You have to expect the unexpected. As the champion you have to be ready for absolutely everything. I’m going into this fight being prepared for everything and anything.”
