Miesha Tate to Dana White after UFC 205: ‘F*ck you, I don’t work for you anymore’
Her retirement announcement at UFC 205 came to a surprise by many, even UFC President Dana White, but Miesha Tate did it on her own accord.
Tate came into UFC 205 as the No. 1 ranked female bantamweight in the UFC. She won the title back in March defeating Holly Holm at UFC 196, and then lost the belt to Amanda Nunes at UFC 200.
But after losing a unanimous decision to Raquel Pennington last night Tate announced her retirement from the sport.
After the fight was over White tried to convince Tate to go to the hospital but she didn’t want his guidance or advice.
“Her and I had a little bit of a thing tonight,” explained White. “She was refusing to go to the hospital. And I’m like, ‘you’re going to the hospital.’ She’s like, ‘f*ck you, I don’t work for you anymore.’
“So, yeah. I was like, that’s a good point, but you need to go to the hospital. … Then I had to start begging, ‘if you go to the hospital tonight, I’ll get you another job doing something else, and I could be your boss again.’ So, she went, yeah. She has to go.”
