Sterling: UFC took away Tate's title shot because of Caraway

UFC bantamweight Aljamain Sterling is an outspoken character on Twitter, and the rising star has been angling for a fight with Bryan Caraway seemingly for months now. Due to a litany of injuries in the division, the UFC hasn't been able to book Sterling since his big win over Takeya Mizugaki, and an otherwise healthy top 10 talent may only get to compete just once this year.

It is on that note that we tie-in Bryan Caraway's turning down of fight offers to his girlfriend, Miesha Tate, not getting her virtually guaranteed title shot vs. Ronda Rousey. "Wait what?" Exactly. Caraway apparently turned down a fight with Urijah Faber, and Sterling vs. Caraway hasn't been so much as rumored for a UFC event. On Monday morning, Sterling teased "inside info" and then stated that Caraway not accepting fights is what caused Tate to lose her title shot to Holly Holm.
Yeah that sounds like the UFC

It's believable, and that's sad.

Seems unlikely... even more unlikely would be ever getting any confirmation on this. Their are many reasons for Tate to not get this title shot.

Its just trash talk. Hes trying to wind Caraway up. And seeing as that dude has a thick skin, claiming hes the reason Tate lost her shot is a far more productive way to vex him, then aiming personal shots.

Caraway should simply respond "I heard that Floyd f***ed your bird Aljamain. She snuck out of your room that night and went to him, didnt you know?

Seriously though who wants to see Tate x 3. Caraway reminds me of Jacob Volkman. Same style, rinse, repeat, recycle...

Baked, not fried... the healthy choice.
