Ronda Rousey Training For Best Miesha Tate Possible

Ronda Rousey Training For Best Miesha Tate Possible

UFC female bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey didn’t have to think long or hard for the one word to describe her UFC 168 opponent Miesha Tate.

“Fake,” said Rousey, during a recent appearance on “UFC Tonight.”

The two will meet for a second time next Saturday night in Las Vegas in the co-main event. Rousey submitted Tate when they first fought via first round armbar.

Despite the early finish, that’s not something Rousey is expecting once again.

“For every single fight, I plan for the worst case scenario,” she said. “I expect Miesha to come in the best version of her and we’re going to have a five round war and I’m prepared for it.”

Rousey was forced to balance her last few months of training around filming roles in two upcoming movies, “The Expendables 3″ and the next installment of the “Fast & Furious” franchise. She also coached the 18th season of The Ultimate Fighter opposite Tate.

None of that, though, caused her any issues in becoming the best Rousey possible.

“It’s going great; I’ve never had such a good camp,” the ex-Olympian stated. “I’ve never been in such good shape. I’ve never been so sharp and focused.”
