“Maybe I can give him [Mark Munoz] one of those pillows when he’s lying on the floor in a pile of piss and blood when I’m finished with him.”

“I’ve had people I worked with before that I didn’t get along with, but never to this extent. I don’t know what her [Ronda Rousey’s] reasoning was for it, but at one point, she just flipped a switch, and she just became this mega-bitch. For the rest of the season [TUF 18], it was just horrible having to deal with her.”
—Miesha Tate to Fox Sports 1’s Google Hangout.
