It is still apparent that there is bad blood between current UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion Miesha Tate and former champion Ronda Rousey, but it looks like Rousey has a problem with another fighter. On the Joe Rogan’s podcast “The Joe Rogan Experience,” Tate recalled a story told to her by straweight fighter Paige Van Zant.
“So Paige was also at that VIP party, and Paige and I have spoke, we’re friendly. Don’t know her that well. Anyway, she felt the need, she came up to me like ‘Miesha Miesha Miesha, I have to tell you this experience I had with Ronda.’ I’m like ‘Oh, what?’ And she’s like ‘Well we were at a Reebok deal just recently, and we were at a shoot, and I was trying to find her so we could get a picture, and the Reebok people were like ‘Don’t ask Ronda for a picture.” She was like ‘Why?’ They were like ‘Don’t, just stay away from Ronda, don’t ask her for a picture.’ She was like ‘Okay…’.
And I guess Ronda came later that day and seeked her out. And just cussed her out. They’ve never really had a conversation either. She’s like ‘I don’t know Ronda other than hi, bye.’ That’s it. I guess she came up, Ronda came up and was like ‘F**k you, you fairweathered bitch. How dare you cross me.’ She (Paige) was like ‘Cross you? What are you talking about?’ And she (Rousey) is like ‘You congratulated Holly Holm for beating me, so f**k you, you f**king fairweathered 115-pound…”. She just went off on Paige.”
TMZ reached out to VanZant about the incident and she confirmed the story. “It appears that I offended Ronda by congratulating Holly after her victory. The incident was very shocking and totally unnecessary,” said VanZant. TMZ reached out to Rousey as well, but were unable to get a response.
