– Miesha Tate Looks back On Ronda Rousey Fights and Hopes for Trilogy Fight Against Ronda Rousey (If She Comes Back To UFC)
“I’m really grateful to have had somebody like Ronda as that foe,” Tate said in a sit-down interview with UFC reporter Megan Olivi. “It needed two parts. We needed that to make people care just beyond a sport, right? There was a storyline to follow, and it went on for—who knows? Maybe after she has kids she’ll want to come back and fight again. Who knows? Like, that would be a dream come true.
“But honestly, I look at it so different. I’m just so thankful to have that, not just maybe what it did for the sport, but I can truly, fully say from my first-hand perspective what it did for me. And it did amazing things. And she was the perfect person to have standing across the way from me.”
