Miesha Tate may finally be the champ, but she still knows which side of her bread is buttered – the side with former champ and longtime rival Ronda Rousey on it. So of course it behooves her to keep those flames burning.
Though she has an upcoming bout against Amanda Nunes, Tate’s been making the media rounds, and on Conan O’Brien’s show she took the time to throw some heat Rousey’s way. Obviously, no one knows when Rousey is coming back – or even if – but if the film and TV opportunities do eventually slow to a trickle, it’s a safe bet Rousey will come back to the place that propelled her to stardom. It’s only good business sense for Tate to want to be the one to greet her upon her return.
