UFC champion Miesha Tate is hammering former champion Ronda Rousey for having suicidal thoughts at one point.
Tate spoke with Sports Illustrated Tuesday where she unleashed her scathing opinions on Rousey’s fall from grace and subsequent journey to a dark place. (SLIDESHOW: Celebrate Ronda Rousey’s Birthday With These Sexy Photos)
“I thought that was a big sign of mental weakness, to be honest,” Tate said about Rousey’s suicidal thoughts.
She also added, “I’ve been down and out in this sport, too, obviously losing my fight to Ronda. That was really, really hard for me. But my mindset is to get back in the gym and get better, get stronger and learn from it and come back, and now here I am with the world title.”
The former UFC champion told Ellen DeGeneres that she thought about killing herself following her shocking loss to Holly Holm at UFC 193. (RELATED: Ronda Rousey Says She Was Suicidal After Shocking Holly Holm Loss [VIDEO])
Tate, who was previously annihilated by Rousey, might want to consider choosing her words a little more carefully because Rousey will likely step back into the Octagon with her in November. (VIDEO: UFC President Dana White Has Finally Revealed If Ronda Rousey Will Ever Fight Again)
