    Does getting your arm snapped in half cause permanent damage? I don't think a snapped arm can ever become as dexterous as a non damaged arm.

    Do you think Tate regret not tapping earlier in her first fight against Ronda?

    No, because Miesha got lucky and miraculously, believe it or not - nothing broke.

    Despite how it looked.

    She seemed to do better in her second fight. She might even make it the full five rounds in the third fight.

    No shit. I thought she had a hairline... If it was an early UFC then the commentary would have said "she popped a capsule in her arm" whatever that meant.

    They may have feeble brains but they sure are bendy and nice smelling.

    She got more people talking about WMMA after that than I had heard before up until the last Ronda fight.

    Months to heal an injury, months of rehab, and on the shelf for months?

    Yah, I'm pretty sure she regretted not tapping sooner.

    At a minimum she sure wasn't in a hurry to get her arm broken in the second fight. As soon as Ronda locked in the arm bar, Tate was tapping right away.

    She doesn't sound or look like she cared that much.

    Not only does Tate have the best heart in WMMA, but her attitude and professional composure when the heat turns all the way up is basically as perfect as I've seen from any single athlete or person. She'd be an awesome high level politician or lawyer, I honestly think

    I'm not a fan of hers in any way but I could not believe Julie Kedzie basically knocked her out with a headkick for a couple seconds and Tate went on to not only win the match she was losing but via armbar minutes later.

    I have doubts you could fully knock her unconscious with a baseball bat.

    Yep. She's been in some really crazy bad situations where you see a fighter in that spot and you know they're beyond done, you feel bad for continuing to watch, that's how bad it is. And then she turns it around and wins.

    And then she has this cute, sweet little nothing-to-it girly smile getting her hand raised
