Miesha Tate (17-5) and Ronda Rousey (12-1) have been rivals for several years. There is no love lost between the two, and Tate has now seemingly killed any possibility of them ever being remotely cordial.
Following Rousey's devastating knockout loss to Holy Holm (10-0) at UFC 193 last night (Nov. 14, 2015) the No. 1-ranked UFC women's Bantamweight contender didn't hold back while hosting a UFC viewing party at The Sapphire Club in Las Vegas, NV (via FOXSports.com).
"I'm fucking stoked," Tate said. "Honestly, fuck Ronda Rousey. Fuck her and her nobody has the right to beat her -- well, you just got beat, bitch!"

The bad blood between the two began prior to their first meeting back in 2012 when Rousey defeated Tate to claim the Strikeforce women's 135-pound title. The rivalry intensified when they were pitted against each other as coaches on The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 18 all the way through UFC 168 in Dec. 2013, where Rousey submitted Tate for a second time in the highly-anticipated rematch.
Tate was supposedly in line for a shot at the title, but was passed over for Holm -- a decision she was none too pleased about -- which led her to start thinking about "retirement." She didn't find fault with Holm taking the title shot, though, and was very complimentary of the new UFC women's Bantamweight champion.
"I'm proud of Holly. She had the perfect, flawless game plan," Tate said. "She came in here tonight and she's the champion and I look forward to that fight because I think I'm next in line."
However, she may have to wait for a title shot once again as UFC president Dana White mentioned at the UFC 193 post-fight press conference, that a rematch between Holm and Rousey "would make sense."
Either way, Rousey will likely be none too pleased when she hears what Tate had to say after the first lost of her professional MMA career.
