Shoot! video: Miesha Tate says 9 times out of 10, gals outperform guys in UFC and MMA

Hey ladies, get funky!

If you are getting psyched up to watch Anderson Silva rematch Chris Weidman at the upcoming UFC 168 pay-per-view (PPV) on Dec. 28 in Las Vegas, then perhaps you have your priorities mixed up.

Or, maybe this is that one time out of 10 when the boys will outperform the girls.

That's according to Miesha Tate (via The Shoot!), who will do the dance with fellow Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 18 coach and women's bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey in the "Weidman vs. Silva 2" co-main event.

"Finally, it's time that we get that recognition. Dana's finally paying attention and I feel like the rest of the world is finally paying attention, too. I knew if we could just get that first time, watching women's MMA, that people would be hooked because we always come to fight. We fight really hard and nine times out of 10, we do it better than the boys do."

Hard to sour on "Cupcake" for that one.

She's been in a couple of barnburners with mixed results. After a thrilling come-from-behind victory against Julie Kedzie in her final Strikeforce appearance, Tate (13-4) went to war in a thriller against Cat Zingano earlier this year on FX, coming up short but still getting another title shot, regardless (because of this).

Anyone disagree with her assessment?
