Miesha Tate Talks Upcoming Fight
Quotes from Miesha Tate during a recent Strikeforce teleconference dealio:
Verbatim from the press release... take what you want from her statements.
"At first I was kind of surprised because it is a pretty big jump but the more I thought about it the more I thought this was a great situation for me to fight someone like Sarah Kaufman. She has an undefeated record and now I'm stepping in there with the opportunity to be the first one to beat her and I'm going to go for it. I'm hoping it's the fight of the night."
"I think the style matchup makes for a fascinating fight because I perhaps have strengths where she has weaknesses and vice versa. I think there's a lot of potential for some good back and forth which I think will make for a really fun fight to watch."
"I don't really prepare differently for each opponent. This is MMA so anything can happen out there. I just go out there and I know what I'm going to do and I plan on dictating the fight. You have to be prepared for anything to happen. She's hungry and I'm hungry. I went from a win-lose situation to a win-win situation fighting Sarah."
"There is more out there than just Cyborg and Gina Carano. They've been getting all the attention. We're going to show next Friday that we can be included with those two names."
