Ronda Rousey explains the lack of Miesha Tate handshake

Hey, I don’t blame Ronda for not shaking the hand of Miesha. Especially after everything we heard happened on TUF with the cameras on and off. It’s a fight, not everyone needs to hug and kiss after a fight. Besides, the same people who booed Ronda are likely the same who cheered Anderson’s leg break. I refuse to suffer an MMA fool.

But maybe I’m just being bitter. Still, I don’t blame Ronda. Let her do what she wants. It’s about time we actually got a free mind and not a mouthpiece in front of a microphone. On top of that, she backs up her talk. I applaud that.

“My family is my kids on my show, my coaches, my actual family,” said Rousey. “There’s a lot of things that went on between me and her,  I understand that’s a part of the game. But, once you cross that line, I can’t shake the hand of someone who spits on my back. And so I respect her as a fighter, she did an amazing job tonight. It’s just  a handshake means something to me. And she hasn’t earned it from me. You really don’t think she can take back what she’s done until she actually formally apologizes to me and my team.”
