Video: Miesha Tate shines on Conan O'Brien, bags on 'pouty' Ronda Rousey for hiding out

"I'm not saying she won't come back, I just don't know if she'll come back the same. Because she seems awful pouty about the loss and we've all had losses. You either get up and get back on the horse and come back stronger for it or you sit out for over a year. I'm at the best point of my career and she's at the worst. I think I bring a level of confidence. I've been defeated before, but I've come back stronger for it. I question whether she will be able to do the same."

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) women's bantamweight champion Miesha Tate will defend her newly-won strap against rough-and-tumble contender Amanda Nunes at the upcoming UFC 200 pay-per-view (PPV) event, which takes place next month in Las Vegas, Nevada. Unfortunately, no one in the mainstream media cares about "Lioness" -- even they even know who she is -- and only want to talk about former division titleholder Ronda Rousey, who went missing after her knockout loss to Holly Holm last November. Naturally, Tate -- who has a long and violent history with the "Rowdy" Olympian -- wasn't going to pass up the opportunity to get her digs in. No disrespect to the Brazilian challenger, but I think we need Tate vs. Rousey 3 just to put this rivalry to bed once and for all.
