Dana White Says Ronda Rousey Will Fight Miesha Tate For The Title Next (Video)
It looks like Holly Holm, who shocked the world when she knocked out Ronda Rousey won’t be getting a rematch after she was taken down by a rear naked choke by Miesha Tate at UFC 196 Saturday night in Las Vegas.
UFC president Dana White stated on ESPN that the plan is for Ronda Rousey to challenge Miesha Tate for the women’s bantamweight championship.
I think that Ronda now will now fight Miesha Tate for the title – that’s what’s gonna happen. That’s what I said before this fight even happened. Whoever wins tonight will fight Ronda for the title.
I texted Ronda – she wasn’t watching the fight. I texted her and she said, “What happened?” And I said, “Miesha just choked her unconscious.” She said, “Looks like I gotta get back to work.”
Ronda Rousey has worked very hard for 3 and a half years for this company. She did everything that was asked, and went above and beyond the call of duty. If she wants to stay out until October, I will let her do that.
