UFC Quick Quote: Miesha Tate's mom won't approve of her being a fake-ass bitch

Ethan Miller

Mom bomb!

"Yeah, that [middle finger] was a tasteless moment on our part, but you know what? It was viewed a lot, very disrespectful, and ‘how could you do that?’ and I had a lot of Tweets from people saying they had daughters and [I] lost a fan because [their] daughter saw that and she looked up to you. You know what though? Your daughter is going to have to make a decision at some point in her life to defend her honor, and defend who she is, and to defend the honesty of what her life is about. And you know what? That’s what we did in that instance. And it’s not going to come out how people want it, and that’s where the confusion is going to come in, and that’s where the judgment comes in. So, that’s my answer to that. I’m sorry. We want to be really good role models to all these up-and-coming female MMA fighters who are strong-willed, you know? We’re going to try and do the right thing, but a lot of the time the right thing is going to be the wrong thing, and there’s no other real way I can explain that. Miesha, you really think your mom is going to approve of you being a fake-ass bitch? Like really? You think your mom really wants that out of you? Like I don't think so, I wouldn't think so. My mom doesn't want [that]. I apologized for flipping her off to my mom, but my mom was like, ‘You know what?' She's like, ‘We don't flip people off in Russia, we just tell it to their face.' That's how it happened."

Poor Miesha Tate. Not only does she have to face the wrath of fellow Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 18 coach and UFC 168 opponent Ronda Rousey, she also has to take shit from the "Rowdy" coaching staff, as well. Rousey's assistant coach, Marina Shafir, ices "Cupcake" during an appearance on Fist-Ta-Cuff Radio (via BJPenn.com), calling her out for being a phony-bologna while also defending her decision to flip Tate the bird (again) following a couple of recent TUF fights. That's not the kind of thing you want your mama to see (this mama doesn't care), but it sure beats having her watch you be a fake-ass bitch, according to Shafir. Tate could just block it all out by putting her hands over her ears, but that would leave her susceptible to a knee to the cooter, which could be coming from this scorned ex-contestant. Reality television, fight fans, welcome to TUF. See more of the weekly silliness by clicking here.
