And she did have choices if Tate was too tough for her own good. She could have called out to the ref that it was breaking and asked him to stop it earlier. Its not as egregious as Steve Cantwell saying he's "always wanted to do that" but its not far off either.
Apparently their idiocy, self-absorption, and lack of class is contagious.
Go ahead, call me names, I don't really care. There is a clear difference between Ronda and Cantwell, so to even make a comparison in any fashion is a slap in the face to MMA fighters. Do I think Ronda wanted to break Tates arm and possibly ruin her career? Nope. But it is Tate's job to protect herself at all times, including tapping to prevent injury. Ronda shouldn't feel bad or back down because Tate is a tough as nails DOB.
