Other than a general update stating she hadn’t broken her arm, former Strikeforce bantamweight champ Miesha Tate has remained fairly quiet about her condition since suffering a submission loss to Ronda Rousey from early March. Rousey locked Tate’s limb up in an Armbar and torqued it violently after “Takedown” initially refused to tap.
The finish was one of the more gruesome in recent memory and left questions surrounding how badly Tate had been hurt despite her acting as though things were fine. However, as tough as Tate may be, she recently confirmed the damage was fairly severe and that she still isn’t sure when she’ll return to the ring.
“I basically tore everything. I tore the inner and outer sides of my ligaments attached to the muscles and bone. They actually pulled the bone off with the ligament and then I tore all the muscles around that. So… it was pretty bad, but you know for me it wasn’t really that bad,” admitted Tate while stopping by the Invicta FC booth this past weekend and chatting with announcer Mauro Ranallo.
Tate went on to explain she’ll be getting her two-month check-up this week where she’ll find out more pertaining to how long she’ll be sidelined.
