The rivalry involving UFC bantamweights Miesha Tate and Sarah Kaufman has reached Instagram levels of hate. Bypassing the social networks of Twitter as well as Facebook the tension that exists between Tate and Kaufman can only be expressed using visuals. Words are not enough when two former Strikeforce champions collide from their respective cell phones.
Kaufman struck first by showing her disgust for snack treats.
In an act of performance art, reports believe that Kaufman’s fist represents her fist and the defenseless cupcake represents Tate or the fight against childhood obesity that has plagued Canada. The question has to be asked what did Kaufman do with the other 11 cupcakes that came out of the oven? The cupcakes are still good and probably tasty. Hope she didn’t waste them in the name of fight promotion.
Never to be outdone by baked goods, Tate turned to the medical community to get her point across.
I wasn’t going to bother posting the CT Scan picture of the break in my orbital bone BUT since Kaufman referred to me as a coward and said I turned down the fight w her repeatedly, I figured I would post the proof. I have not been offered a fight at all because I am on injury suspension. I have always stepped up, never backed down from a fight. I don’t think anyone can argue that I am a coward. I am not cleared to fight (or train) yet but trying to heal as quickly as possible. I want to fight Bethe Correia (the undefeated, tough, relevent fighter) when Im healed up but that sure as HELL doesn’t make me scared of Kaufman
Through the use of a badly drawn human skull from a preschooler or an actual x-rays from her personal doctor, Tate revealed via Instagram that she is still on medical suspension. Medical experts all agree that “if the white toothpick looking thing in your head is touching the black object that looks like the country of Greenland you should not be cleared to fight!” You can talk smack on Instagram and call out other fighters you deem relevant but you cannot fight if your eye bone is broken so to speak.
Medical reports reveal that Tate will likely be fully healed once a bout with unbeaten UFC bantamweight lighting rod Bethe Correia is available.
