The amount of disrespect you have given @ZoilaGurgel is disgusting.” Former Strikeforce female champion, Miesha Tate, took to twitter to express her disgust with Bellator FC for putting their female champion on the under card of this Friday’s Bellatory 78 event.

“I want to sit down with the people of Viacom. I’m interested in what’s going on with the Spike deal next year. Of course Bellator has a ton of huge things going on, and I’m interested in what them guys have to say. From there, we’ll field offers from everyone else, the UFC and everyone else, whoever is out there, I don’t know who’s out there. I didn’t know Bellator existed, they just started when I was done with my Dream contract, they just popped up out of nowhere.” “I’m not impatient. I’m taking my time with this. There’s very few times in your career when you become a free agent after winning. That’s the biggest key. So I’m taking my time, enjoying my family back home, and just eating a little bit of normal meals.”
