Miesha Tate 'stoked' by Ronda Rousey's loss to Holly Holm: 'You just got beat, bitch!'

Miesha Tate couldn't hide her emotions if she tried.

The UFC women's bantamweight contender -- and longtime rival of Ronda Rousey -- took particular glee in seeing Rousey get knocked out in the second round by Holly Holm at UFC 193 on Saturday night in Melbourne, Australia.

Speaking at a UFC watch party at the Sapphire gentleman's club in Las Vegas, Tate said she was "f*cking stoked" by Holm's head kick KO.

"Honestly, f*ck Ronda Rousey," Tate said.

Tate, who has lost to Rousey twice, was passed over for the title shot by the UFC in favor of Holm despite being promised it after her win over Jessica Eye at UFC on FOX 16 in July. She has said in multiple interviews that she's contemplating retirement unless the UFC makes things right.

"Nobody has the right to beat you?" Tate said. "Well, you just got beat bitch."

As for Holm's stunning, upset performance, Tate gives it a gold star. And she wants a piece of "The Preacher's Daughter" next.

"I'm proud of Holly," Tate said. "She had the perfect, quality game plan. She came in tonight, she's the champion. I'm looking forward to that fight. I think I'm next in line."
