Miesha Tate: Ronda Rousey is too focused on having baby
Tuesday March 8th, 2016

UFC bantamweight champion Miesha Tate is questioning whether Ronda Rousey is focused on their next fight or having a baby, according to TMZ Sports. 

Tate’s comment was in response to an interview Rousey did with Ellen DeGeneres after losing the title to Holly Holm at UFC 193. During that interview, Rousey opened up about being depressed after the fight and finding comfort with the idea of starting a family with boyfriend and UFC heavyweight Travis Browne. 

"I don't even know what [Ronda] is thinking right now,” Tate said. “It seems like her motivation to stick around was to have Travis Browne's baby. So, I don't know."

Tate then said her desire to fight is the only motivation she needs after a loss. 

"Every time I've ever lost my motivation is to get back up on the horse and fight someone again and work my way back to the top," Tate says. 

Tate claimed the belt with a fifth-round submission victory over Holly Holm at UFC 196. UFC president Dana White has already said that Rousey will be the next to challenge for the title.
