She also told USA Today that she was preparing to destroy Holm’s dream of defending her title against Roussey.
“If that’s what she wants, sorry, but I’m going to ruin that for her,” Tate said, according to USA Today. “If they want to make that rematch happen, that’s how I see it going down because on Saturday I’m going to go in there, and I’m confident that I’m going to win the belt.”
Roussey, meanwhile, reacted to the win in a way that has many of her fans excited.
