This weekend will mark the most-hyped women’s bout in MMA since Gina Carano clashed with Cristiane Santos in 2009, as Strikeforce bantamweight champ Miesha Tate and unbeaten Olympian Ronda Rousey will meet in the main event to settle their personal score with the divisional belt adding yet another layer of intrigue to the match-up.
In their continuing quest to hype the fight Strikeforce has released a clip featuring career highlights from both of the bad-ass beauties, again showing the organization has stepped its own game up in terms of creating well-produced video packages.
Rousey is 4-0 in her career with four first round finishes while Tate holds an overall mark of 12-2 including six straight wins. Each has been very critical of the other leading up to their scrap this Saturday night, a factor likely resulting in fireworks when the two lock horns inside the ring.
Fans can catch Rousey-Tate on Showtime at 10:00 PM EST with other featured fights like KJ Noons-Josh Thomson and Paul Daley-Kazuo Misaki. Bouts being shown on the prelims, set to air on Showtime Extreme starting at 8:00 PM EST, include Conor Heun-Ryan Couture, Sarah Kaufman-Alexis Davis, and Pat Healy-Caros Fodor.
