Miesha Tate Claims Ronda Rousey ‘Basically Tore Everything’

Miesha Tate did her best to put on a smile and ignore the pain caused by the nasty armbar that Ronda Rousey locked on her during their Strikeforce bantamweight women’s title match earlier this year.

While Tate did not suffer any broken bones, she did have severe ligament damage done to her arm. During a recent interview with Mauro Ranallo at the Invicta event, “Takedown” discussed the injury.

I basically tore everything. I tore the inner and outer sides of my ligaments attached to the muscles and bone. They actually pulled the bone off with the ligament and then I tore all the muscles around that. So…it was pretty bad, but you know, for me, it wasn’t really that bad.

Tate added that she will go to the doctor for her check-up soon, with hopes that she can return to action soon.
