Former Strikeforce women’s bantamweight champion, Meisha Tate, spoke during this past weekends post fight press conference and revealed that she was not overly thrilled with her win over Julie Kedzie. When asked if she wanted a rematch with Ronda Rousey, the woman who took her title, next, she had this reply.
“I’m not going to ask for that at that point because I don’t feel that I deserve it. I think that I need to take a couple fights and I need a better performance than that. I think the fans deserve something better, and I know that I can deliver better than that.
At this point, I don’t feel that my performance, I mean everyone is saying it was ‘Fight of the Night’ and everything and that’s great and I’m really happy it was an entertaining bout. But I personally am not happy with my performance. I definitely don’t think it was a contention worthy performance.”
