â€śI will seriously shoot myself in the face before I leave that cage if she armbars me again. It canâ€™t happen,â€ť says Miesha Tate of her upcoming rematch with womenâ€™s UFC bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey.
The two fought under the Strikeforce banner and Tate became another opponent to lose to Rousey by way of first-round armbar. However, Tate did go out in gritty fashion by refusing to tap and having her arm broken instead.
This time around she has no intention of falling for the same trick twice and so she tells MMA FightCorner that she will be having â€śan anti-judo campâ€ť in the run-up to the UFC 168 fight, which will be the UFCâ€™s last title fight of 2013.
â€śItâ€™s never too early to train and practice that gameplan over and over and over, Iâ€™m going to beat it into my skull if I have to.Swear to God, sheâ€™s not going to armbar me if itâ€™s the last thing I doâ€¦ Thatâ€™s what Iâ€™m going to do from now until December 28, itâ€™s going to be an anti-judo camp,â€ť she says.
â€śEveryone thinks itâ€™s an armbar, itâ€™s not. Itâ€™s like a move of itâ€™s own.â€ť
