Now that former UFC bantamweight champion Miesha Tate is happily retired she’s had a lot more time to interact with the fans. Most of the time they’re very complimentary, and respectful, but not every exchange has been positive.
Most recently Tate caught a lot of grief for her stance on signing autographs for fans. She explained that many of these autograph seekers are simply looking to profit off the fighter’s blood, sweat and tears and she doesn’t support that whatsoever.
It looks like more people are trying to stir up trouble with her on social media though. A random fan decided to make a disparaging comment about her inability to defeat former UFC bantamweight champ Ronda Rousey and it was all downhill from there.
“Just saying how she going to speak when she couldn’t even defeat Rhonda for the belt”

Miesha Tate wasn’t going to let it slide and put this person on full blast for his comments. She made sure to let him know that one thing has absolutely nothing to do with the other.
