Video: Miesha Tate vs Ronda Rousey staredown from Strikeforce weigh-ins


What, you thought they would be civil?

Women's Bantamweight Champion Miesha Tate and number one contender to said title, Ronda Rousey, squared off at today's Strikeforce weigh-ins after successfully tipping the scale at 134.5-pounds, making their bout official for tomorrow night's (March 3, 2012) event in Columbus, Ohio.

And they got a little testy in the process.

When it came time to get in each other's face, Tate got a little too close and Rousey didn't appreciate the forehead-to-forehead action. When asked by Mauro Ranallo for thoughts, "Rowdy" kept it short and sweet.

"I can't wait until it's legal for me to actually kick her ass," she said.

Tate, meanwhile, maintained her even keeled approach to the match-up:

"I'm excited to put on a great fight. I think we've done a great job of pumping this fight up and I hope y'all are really excited to see it. It's going to be an amazing fight."

The time for talk is over. Now it's time to step inside the cage and scrap. It all goes down tomorrow night in Ohio, Maniacs. Y'all ready?
