"The more things that Ronda does means the more things that I can do," said Tate. "If she's filming The Expendables, why can't I go do a film? She's opening doors and I feel like I'm right on her heels. Hopefully, I pray to God -- and I'm going to train my a-- off -- that I win. Then, those opportunities will open up to me, too."
