Miesha Tate's common ground with Donald Trump: Disliking Ronda Rousey

In the world of combat sports, just about everyone has taken a swing at presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump. Whether its different philosophies on culture, finances or politics, Trump has proven to be quite the polarizing personality.

Miesha Tate is still not a fan of Ronda Rousey. But one person who has found common ground with Trump happens to be UFC women’s bantamweight champion Miesha Tate.

Tate recently stated that she would like to see a Republican in the White House and explained that both her and Trump share similar resilient traits where they can bounce back from failure and shock the world.

But perhaps the thing they share most is a common enemy.

“We do have one thing in common: he’s not a Ronda Rousey fan,” Tate told TMZ. “That’s one thing he’s got going for him if I can give him any credit where credit is due.”

Tate’s feud with Rousey has been one of the better-documented rivalries in mixed martial arts. Tate failed on two occasions to upend Rousey but managed to defeat Holly Holm — who knocked out Rousey last November — to become the women’s bantamweight champion. A third fight between the two appears to be almost inevitable when Rousey returns, as long as Tate does her part and defeats Amanda Nunes at UFC 200, and the vitriolic feud is certain to be rekindled.

As for Trump, Rousey slammed the idea of Trump becoming president last July. Trump fired back by taking a shot at Rousey shortly after she was knocked out by Holm.

If and when Tate and Rousey have their rematch, the current UFC bantamweight champion will step into the Octagon knowing that she’ll have the full support of perhaps the next president of the United States.
