Ronda Rousey Talks Possible Fight with Miesha Tate, Her Interest Level
On the potential fight
If she’s the best competitor and she’s who the fans want to see then, yeah, I’m extremely interested in doing it.
On Tate’s win over Jessica Eye
I’m not surprised. She’s a great competitor and athlete. I’ve always said there’s amazing things about her as a fighter. I need these other girls. It’s not like I can do this by myself; I need a dance partner, and the analogy I use a lot is these girls are like plants. Sometimes, you can grow a crop and you can harvest it year after year like Miesha, and sometimes you harvest it once and it will never grow back – like I don’t think Bethe will ever come back after this. But I think this might be the final season I can harvest the Tate crop.
On her interest in the fight
There’s fan interest, so there’s my interest. I’m interested in defending my title as many times as I need to before I feel like I’m done. If she’s the best competitor and she’s who the fans want to see, then I’m extremely interested in doing it. I’m an entertainer. I’m not just here for myself. I’m totally down if she’s the won who’s piqued my interest after I’m done beating Bethe.
