"It was pretty much what I expected, but she did get a little sloppy there, giving her back up, which is a habit I have picked up on a little bit," Tate said of Rousey's first performance inside the world-famous Octagon. "I got her back in the first fight and I guarantee you if I get it in the second one, I'm going to rip her face off."
Tate thinks if she had Rousey in the same position that Carmouche locked her in early in the UFC 157 tilt that she would have finished the star judoka.
"100 percent," Tate said.
Tate's upcoming opponent, Invicta FC veteran Cat Zingano, also wasn't impressed with Rousey's performance.
"It was exactly what I expected," Zingano said. "It's impressive because it's the first female fight in the UFC and I'm very proud that we're all part of it, but I think there's a lot of holes in [Rousey's] game. Time will tell."
Tate and Zingano will face one another at the TUF 17 Finale in April, with the winner likely facing Rousey in their next fight.
No official word yet from the UFC, but a fight between Rousey and Tate or Zingano could take place as early as July.
Rousey sustained virtually no damage during her fight against Carmouche, so she should be good to go in a matter of months.
