Ronda Rousey thinks third meeting with Miesha Tate may be the last

Rousey’s sixth title defense opposite Bethe Correia is cominig up this Saturday at UFC 190. Yet her longtime rival Miesha Tate is up next, and Rousey has some thoughts on the subject of a third fight with Tate.
UFC women’s bantamweight champ Ronda Rousey already is talking up a third fight with Miesha Tate, two days after her longtime rival secured a meeting with the winner of Rousey’s sixth attempted title defense opposite Bethe Correia at Saturday’s UFC 190.

“If she’s the best competitor and she’s who the fans want to see then, yeah, I’m extremely interested in doing it,” Rousey (11-0 MMA, 5-0 UFC) said during a media teleconference in support of the pay-per-view event at HSBC Arena in Rio de Janeiro.

Following Tate’s (17-5 MMA, 4-2 UFC) unanimous decision over Jessica Eye (11-3 MMA, 1-2 UFC) in the co-main event of this past Saturday’s UFC on FOX 16, UFC President Dana White confirmed that the ex-Strikeforce champ, whom Rousey defeated to eventually become the first women’s champ in the UFC (and later beat in a rematch), is the No. 1 contender in the women’s bantamweight division.
