Morning Report: Miesha Tate at Ronda Rousey: ‘I don’t think she’s entirely happy along with her legacy’MMAFighting.Com #May_2019May 3, 2019
After rising to the top of the sport and garnering a then unrivaled amount of fame, Rousey’s abrasive demeanor began rubbing people the wrong way and following her loss to Holly Holm as self-imposed media blackout, public sentiment starting turning against her.
Rousey hasn’t done much to dissuade this shift either, recently going so far as to say that fans don’t deserve to hear her feelings on her own legacy in MMA.
It was yet another instance of Rousey pushing fans away, but for Rousey’s most notorious rival, Miesha Tate , it also revealed a deeper underlying truth: that Ronda is not happy with her MMA legacy.
Ronda has always been about Ronda so it doesn’t surprise me.
I don’t think she’s entirely happy with her legacy.
The point that Ronda makes about us not deserving to hear it and about the vulnerability, I think that it speaks again to point that she left the sport worse than she entered it.”
“She has that inflated ego, she does have all of those things,” Tate continued.
I win some, I’ve lost some, I don’t have the need to put myself on a pedestal or not be an open book.
I’ve lost horribly in front of the entire world and so did Ronda.
“She wants to be the hard Ronda Rousey, the one that was back in 2014,” Tate concluded.
