Ronda Rousey Emerges Amid Reports of Paige VanZant Drama
Ronda Rousey sips on her iced coffee while heading inside her gym to train on Saturday (May 7) in Venice, Calif.
Recently, UFC bantamweight champion Miesha Tate, who has fought Ronda in the past, was a guest on the The Joe Rogan Experience. On the show, Miesha detailed something that happened between MMA fighter and current DWTS competitor Paige VanZant and Ronda.
“[Paige] came up to me like, ‘Miesha, I have to tell you this experience I had with Ronda.’ I’m like, oh, what? She was like, ‘well, we were at a Reebok deal recently, we were at a shoot and I was trying to find her so we could get a picture. And the Reebok people were like, ‘don’t ask Ronda for a picture.’ She was like, why? They’re like, ‘just don’t. Just stay away from Ronda. Don’t ask her for a picture,’” Miesha detailed on the show about Paige and Ronda‘s alleged interaction.
“I guess Ronda came later that day and sought her out and just cussed her out. Like, they had never really had a conversation either. [Paige] was like, ‘I don’t know Ronda other than hi/bye. That’s it.’ I guess Ronda came up and was like, ‘f*ck you, you fair-weather b*tch! How dare you cross me? Blah, blah, blah.’ She was like, ‘cross you? What are you talking about?’ And [Ronda] was like, ‘you congratulated Holly Holm for beating me, so f*ck you, you f*cking fair-weather 115-pound…’ Just went off on Paige. Paige came and told me and I was like, honey, welcome to my world,” Miesha continued.
TMZ says it has confirmed the events, though Ronda has yet to make a statement on its validity.
