Current women's UFC bantamweight champion Miesha Tate and current Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump have one thing in common: a dislike for Ronda Rousey.
After Rousey's loss to Holly Holm at UFC 193, Tate couldn't have been happier. After the fight she didn't hold back about her biggest rival, making a comment while hosting a party at a strip club, of all places:
"I'm f–king stoked ... Honestly, f–k Ronda Rousey. F–k her and her 'nobody has the right to beat her' -- well, you just got beat, b–ch!"
It's fair to say that given the two's long rivalry, Tate's comments weren't unexpected, but she wasn't the only one to chime in. Trump took to his favorite form of communication, Twitter, to toss in his two cents about Rousey's loss.
Trump has never been one to hold back an opinion about athletes, celebrities and fans, so it's no surprise that Trump, who is no stranger to sitting cage side for fights, had something to say about Rousey's loss. And now that he's the sole Republican candidate, everybody wants to get everyone else's take on The Donald. Enter TMZ
The gossip site questioned Tate about her thoughts on Trump and, without a doubt, Rousey's name came up because of course.

While the current champ might not exactly be jumping on the Trump presidential bandwagon, her boss UFC president Dana White is. White told TMZ Sports in December that Trump was there for the early days of the Zuffa, Inc. era of the UFC. When the company took over the franchise in early 2001, MMA was banned in most states.
"Donald Trump was the first one to have us come out of the Trump Taj Mahal," White said recently. "Not only did we host the events there, he actually showed up and supported the events. You will never hear me say a negative thing about Donald Trump ... Donald will get my vote."
Maybe a good move on White's part, "The Donald" has a history of taking on big time fight promoters:
