Blasts Ronda Rousey
You Sound ‘Asinine, Selfish’

Rousey made the comments during a “Mile 22” media event last month — saying she’s scaled back her media presence because “I believe hearing me speak is a privilege, and it’s a privilege that’s been abused.”
Enter Tate … her longtime MMA rival who now hosts “MMA Tonight” on SiriusXM — and she went off on the UFC legend.
“This is asinine,” Tate said … “I think this is not the kind of attitude you should have when you’re someone who’s in a position of Ronda.”
Tate says Rousey owes it to her fans to talk to the media — and to call it a privilege is a “slap in the face” to the people who look up to her.
“I don’t think this is the type of attitude a role model should have.”
