PostSubject: Manager: Tate Turned Down Holm Rematch At UFC 200 For “Weaker Opponent”   Thu Apr 07, 2016 7:27 pm

Apparently UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion Miesha Tate took the Amanda Nunes fight at UFC 200 instead of accepting the challenge of an immediate rematch at the landmark event against former champion Holly Holm.

In speaking with The Albuquerque Journal this week, Holm’s manager, Lenny Fresquez, claimed that his fighter would soon be returning to the Octagon in a non-title fight, but that it’s only because “Cupcake” Tate took a “weaker opponent” for her first title defense..

“They tell me Tate chose (Nunes),” Fresquez told the Journal on Thursday in a phone interview. “Holly was offered to her and she chose Nunes. She chose to take a weaker opponent.

“She’s not as stand-up as Holly. She said she’d take on the best, but she’s not willing to take on the best. Holly gave her a chance. We’re pretty disappointed she didn’t return the favor.”

I don't necessarily like nunes getting the shot but I do think holm v ronda 2 needs to happen to see who gets the shot......I really hope that fight happens before either fight for the belt again

Sounds like sour grapes to me.
Of course Tate's manager is gonna be pissed that she didn't get an immediate rematch, but he doesn't need to throw shade like that and attack Tate's character. It makes him look worse than Tate in the character department.

Holm just lost to Tate in her last fight. She has no more claim to a title shot than anyone else. Maybe less than most, depending on what your formula is.

And I agree with matt; Holm/Rousey 2 is the fight to make. That's the fight both Rousey and Dana said they wanted when it was politically correct to say so, so make it happen.

It's total sour grapes.

You just lost! Get over it, and work your way back up to a title fight.
It's not like it was a questionable split decision in an all out war or something.

Managers should just stfu and let their fighters fight, organizers organize and fans do the bitching and complaining. Focus on managing your fighter getting them in the best position for their next fight and not insulting other fighters. While hiding behind the fact that although Tate could kick your ass for such a comment, she is precluded from doing so by law and the rules of the ufc, you chickencrap maternal procreator. (sorry at work)

Best comment of the week, if for no other reason than the creative un-cussing.

hollys manager stated we gave meisha a chance as if she didn't deserve a title shot and who else would have holly fought considering ronda was out with a broken jaw and no timeline for a return?

holly also turned down a fight against cyborg

I like Holm, but it's stuff like this that makes me quickly change my tune.
She was a breathe of fresh air after the Rousey reign. This guy needs to STFU and let her speak for herself.

Actually when I've heard her speak in interviews is what I'm referring to when i say she's a breathe of fresh air.
She's typically very respectful and seems to give honest, open answers and genuinely seems like a nice person.
But then this turd goes and opens his mouth and makes the whole camp sound like a bunch of bitter whine-asses.

I agree with you guys this dude should stfu.

That being said I dont really like the fact that Tate is turning down fights.  First of all why is the UFC asking who her she wants to fight?

Secondly, if she did choose Nunez over Tate I hope Nunez beats her ass for karma sake.

But I am with you guys that this dude is tarnishing Holm.

yeah I agree.. nunez isn't an easy fight and if tate is thinking that she is well it might be a bad night for her. if nunez wins its going to be a shit show for womens mma. you don't want the belt passed around like that.
