Miesha Tate has options. The former Strikeforce women’s bantamweight champion can do just fine if she never finds herself locked alone in a cage with Ronda Rousey ever again.

Tate is 0-for-2 against Rousey, who submitted her in the first round in a Strikeforce bout in 2012 and then repeated it at UFC 168 in 2013.

Since then, the Rousey legend has grown enormously. She’s become the biggest star in the UFC and has won her last three fights, against Cat Zingano, Alexis Davis and Sara McMann, in a combined time of 96 seconds.
