One of the highlight of the episode aside from the match is perhaps Tate’s and her coaching staff’s pranks that involves posting insulting photos of Rousey and her assistant coach Edmond Tarverdyan around the gym.

Rousey was fuming mad upon seeing the photos and called Tate a racist for doing such things.

The recently proclaimed women's bantamweight champion, Meisha Tate, spoke regarding people's decision if she's the new face of women's MMA.

The co-event of the “Strikeforce and M-1 Global: Fedor vs. Henderson” held last Saturday seems to damage the career of the unbeatable Marloes Coenen, as Meisha Tate attained the Strikeforce bantamweight title by finishing her through an arm-triangle choke technique.

Though the new 135lb Strikeforce champion is getting much excitement from her new title belt, Meisha Tate pointed out that she is still keeping her feet on the ground and would not get too affected with the fame she’s entering right now.

See the video of Meisha Tate after her title fight victory against Marloes Coenen after the break.
