At least Tate didn't act like Bethe & McMann

    Bethe gets destroyed & gives Ronda no credit & thinks she could still beat her.
    McMann does no promotion, adds nothing to the buyrate, loses to Ronda & then to Tate & she still thinks she can beat Ronda

    Tate lost, tried to shake Ronda's hand & openly said that Ronda is above all in her division & she needed to get better.
    She then won three straight & said "I think I need another win before thinking of another shot" & then wins that fight

    She looked at what she needed to do & never acted the fool.
    Now she will get an insane check, be part of major hype & the one girl that made it out of the first round gets another shot.

    Good for Tate!

    I still think WBW is the most shallow division but I do believe Tate would likely be champ were it not for Ronda. Have to imagine it'd be between her and Zingano.

    I've increasingly liked Tate's attitude lately, I agree with you TS. Even Ronda has in some recent interviews been reasonably respectful and realistic about Tate's skillset.

    I didn't like the way Tate acted during the Zingano fight, but she handled the Ronda loss well.

    Tate already lost twice to Ronda so it would look worse for her to start talking trash now. And she knows if she loses again it will all be over. Have we ever seen a 4th fight between two lopsided rivals?

    Almost Wanderlei and Sakuraba but an injury stopped the last fight from happening.

    She seems to have worked her ass off both in & out of actual MMA fighting.
    She took her TUF popularity & grew it without any connection to Ronda.
    The 4h, Cyborg, Bethe, etc., all cling to Ronda's name, while Tate stepped back & became her own business & built her name on her own.
    She said she wanted to win 4 fights before thinking of Ronda & did & she deserves this payday IMO.

    That's a good point. Either she is intent on achieving her own success, or else smart enough to know that the Ronda situation would eventually circle back to her anyway. Whichever it is, thumbs up.

    Outside of Zingano, I don't see others as a definite
    Tate, Holm, Cat (maybe) & Cyborg could/should be the next 3/4 fights
    After that Ronda can retire (if she is undefeated)

    McMann & Bethe have no chance before a few more years & by then Ronda should be gone

    Tate really does seem to be the most rational and understanding of how much work she needs to put in. Maybe it's because she lost so many times.

    Tate would definitely be champ at 125 if it existed.

    I think it is both
    Tate comes across like a very smart businessperson

    She openly took Ronda's side against Bethe as well ... I think she is very fair.
    She recently said that she dislikes Ronda & they will never be friends, but Ronda deserves all she is getting & Bethe didn't.
    In the meanwhile, Tate is doing Fox stuff, getting name sponsors & keeping them & getting better in the cage.
    No secret the two top in the division seem to work harder than any others at their careers.

    I wonder if the build-up will be as hate-filled from Ronda as the last fight
    I loved Tate smirking at her the whole time lol

    Pena and Nunes could get title shots depending on how they do in their next fights, which are Eye and McMann, respectively.

    As others have said, Meisha has a great personality and presentation as well. Very humble and a good sense of humor. The end of her fighting career shouldn't bring an end to her involvement. And bring back Frank Mir, the man fits the commentary role so, so well.

    She seems like she might be perfect a few years down the line as someone to be the WMMA liaison to Zuffa or if Fox ever wanted to add a female to the broadcast as something like a 'sidelines' reporter
