"I think she sucks as a referee ... I heard she's going to be refereeing this season, and I think that sucks, too."

-- Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) women's Bantamweight No. 1 contender and coach on The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 18 Miesha Tate voices her displeasure to MMA Junkie over the fact Kim Winslow may be a referee on the upcoming season of the reality show. "Cupcake" has an admitted distain for the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) referee after Winslow stopped Tate's fight with Cat Zingano last April in the third-round after Tate at several big punches and was on hanging on by a thread. Many believed the stoppage was just, but since the moment the fight ended Tate has protested the result and insisted she would have been fine to continue if given the opportunity. The hard feeling still haven't gone away for Tate, and after hearing that Winslow may be the third person in the cage with fighters from her team on TUF 18, she decided to publicly state that she feels Winslow "sucks" at her job.
