UFC women’s bantamweight champion Miesha Tate found someone who shared common dislikes with her, the Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump.
From the official Twitter account of Donald J. Trump, he tweeted about how glad he was when Ronda Rousey got beaten by Holly Holm on their November fight.
Glad to see that @RondaRousey lost her championship fight last night. Was soundly beaten – not a nice person!

According to a report from Yahoo Sports, Miesha Tate, a proud Donald Trump supporter, said that she would like to see a Republican in the White House and reasoned out that they share similar characteristics where they can bounce back from failure and shock the world.
Tate expressed his gratitude for the presidential aspirant after knowing that both of them dislike Ronda Rousey.
“We do have one thing in common: he’s not a Ronda Rousey fan,” Tate told TMZ. “That’s one thing he’s got going for him if I can give him any credit where credit is due.”
Tate and Rousey rivalry was considered one of the intense dispute in the MMA history. Rousey managed to defeat Tate twice but Tate beat Holly Holm who knocked out Rousey last November. There is no exact schedule on when the two female MMA fighters will face each other again but for sure it will be the type of match the world would really want to see.
Ronda Rousey was obviously not a supporter of Donald Trump after slamming the idea of Trump presidency last July. Somehow, there are higher chances that the future president of the United States will be watching the fight between Ronda Rousey and Miesha Tate and he will surely want the match to be in favor of Tate.
However, in order for this to happen, Miesha Tate must succeed in her first title defense against Amanda Nune in UFC 200. The match had been controversial since everybody was expecting that Holly Holm will be given a chance to take revenge against Tate. Tate reasoned out that there is no use in fighting someone whom she had defeated before, adding that everybody should be given a chance to fight for the title.
