It seems that fate has intervened, and it refuses to keep Ronda Rousey and Miesha Tate apart. Cat Zingano injured her knee and will not coach the upcoming season of The Ultimate Fighter opposite Rousey. She is also missing out on her title shot in December, which Tate will now receive. This is an interesting development for various reasons as it ties into the sport vs. spectacle argument that has always engulfed combat sports.
Miesha Tate (12-2) vs. Ronda Rousey (4-0)
Meisha Tate will defend the Strikeforce 135 lbs championship against the undefeated Ronda Rousey. Rousey has taken female mixed martial arts by storm with her impressive submission victories and charisma. The war of words has been heated over the past three months as both women do not like each other. This is the 2nd time a female fight will headline a major MMA event.
