Ronda Rousey considering 'slapping that title out of Miesha Tate's hands' (Video)

If you're not familiar with up-and-coming women's mixed martial artist Ronda Rousey, that's going to change in the very near future.

That's because she's quickly becoming a media darling, what with her being quick witted and easy on the eyes. She embraces such things and is currently in the process of laying out some rather ambitious plans for her fight career.

Up first is a showdown against Julia Budd this Friday night (Nov. 18) in Las Vegas at Strikeforce Challengers 20, which will be just her fourth professional MMA fight. No matter though, because a victory, of which many are predicting, would put her close to the top of the 145-pound division.

And if you've watched her fight, a potential match-up pitting her against reigning division champion Cristiane Santos is difficult not to get hyped for.

However, she might take care of some business at 135-pounds before that ever comes to fruition. As she tells Ariel Helwani of MMA Fighting in the video above, Miesha Tate called her out on Twitter (or at least told a fan she could beat Ronda) and that's all the convincing it took.

Plus, Rousey thinks women's MMA would have a better shot at surviving under the Zuffa banner if they just merged the divisions. She intends to help that process along by "slapping the 135-pound title out of Tate's hands" before doing the same to "Cyborg's" 145-pound title.

That solves the issue of depth and would crown a consensus number one fighting female in all the land. Two birds with one stone.

Anyone care to see "Rowdy" Ronda carry all this out over the coming months?
