Miesha Tate on her arm (from Rousey fight): "Basically I tore everything."

Did anyone else catch this from the chit-chat between the commentators at the Invincta FC 1?

I remember Rousey's armbar of Tate looked real bad and Miesha took forever to tap so people were saying her arm must have gotten screwed, but then Miesha posted a pic of it and said it was ok, no biggie.

Fast forward a few months and here's what she now says:

Mauro Ranallo: When are you supposed to be back in action?

Miesha Tate: You know I haven't got any clearance from the doctors yet. I'm going in for my two month checkup here in a minute. But you know the arm is doing really well. Definitely beating any predictions as far as my recovery. So... I'm really anxious to get back in there.

Mauro Ranallo: What was the extent of the injury because I know you tweeted a picture of the arm and it wasn't broken or anything? What happened to the arm in that fight?

Miesha Tate: 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. I think that... I have the motto that as long as you get up one more time than you fall down then... you know what I mean, you are doing something right? So I'll be back stronger than ever.
That's just my own, non-official transcription of the conversation.

I'm not saying she's got balls but that woman has got some balls.

I'm sorry for Meisha. She's a really lovely woman who's done a lot for the sport...she had just been beaten by a better fighter.

Tate is a solid fighter, but I don't ever see her being able to beat Rousey. Oh well.

"I basically tore everything" seems a lot more believable than the "my arm is fine" we heard at first. It was pretty clear that some serious damage was done.

I doubt she will be able to fight again until the end of the year at the soonest.

My 97 year old grandma defeated a 101 year old guy by verbal submission due to strikes. Now she is evicted from her old folks home. Never too late to start MMA.
