Dana White Says Ronda Rousey Will Face Miesha Tate for the Bantamweight Championship

Miesha Tate ruined the potential Ronda Rousey/Holly Holm rematch last night. That’s not good news if you’re Miesha Tate. Rousey defeated her twice by armbar, and she’ll get a chance to do it a third time, according to Dana White.

Hours after UFC 196, White told Bloody Elbow that Tate will defend her Bantamweight title against Rousey, who’s hasn’t returned to the ring since Holm gave her her first loss.

“I think that Ronda now will now fight Miesha Tate for the title – that’s what’s gonna happen,” White said. “That’s what I said before this fight even happened. Whoever wins tonight will fight Ronda for the title.”

Although that rematch is months away, White kicked off the anticipation by saying that he texted Ronda after the match. She wasn’t watching the shocker, but when White told her what happened, she offered a terse response: “Looks like I gotta get back to work.”
