Miesha Tate Thinks Holly Holm Can Shock the World Again at UFC 219

Back when Holly Holm was pitted against Ronda Rousey at UFC 193, Rousey seemed like an unstoppable juggernaut and was…

“OF ANYBODY THAT I CAN THINK TO FIGHT CYBORG TO RIGHT NOW, THAT HAS THE BEST CHANCE, I HONESTLY, TRULY BELIEVE THAT IT’S HOLLY [HOLM]. THE REASON I SAY THAT IS, IF CYBORG CANNOT GET AHOLD OF HOLLY, IF SHE RECKLESSLY CHASES HER DOWN — SIMILAR TO HOW RONDA [ROUSEY] DID, NOT USING THE CORRECT ANGLES — IF SHE FOLLOWS HER LIKE A MISSILE, WHICH SHE DOES IN EVERY FIGHT I’VE EVER SEEN BEFORE. THAT’S HOW SHE HUNTS GIRLS DOWN BECAUSE SHE CAN. WITH HOLLY, THAT’S NOT A GOOD IDEA. SHE CAN CUT THROUGH THOSE ANGLES. SHE’S AN AMAZING COUNTER STRIKER AND IF SHE LANDS THAT HEAD KICK, I THINK SHE CAN PUT ANYBODY AWAY. SO STYLISTICALLY, THIS MAKES FOR A REALLY, REALLY INTERESTING FIGHT.”
