During the scene, Ronda Rousey caused a bit of a stir by getting too close to Tate's boyfriend, UFC star Bryan Caraway. Many fight fans felt that Rousey was looking for a reaction and Caraway was placed in a lose-lose situation.
"Bryan was minding his own business at the bar, watching the fights, when I saw Ronda just on him, literally touching him with her chest, her shoulder, her legs, her hips, like she was about to give him a lap dance," Tate said in the Yahoo! Sports report. "Bryan was uncomfortably inching away, but Ronda would inch after him with her hips, making him even more uncomfortable.
"I played it cool for a little while, but she was just all over him. You can't tell from the way it aired but this went on for over five minutes, not the 10 seconds you saw on the show. Eventually, I thought, even though she's looking to get a reaction, I have to do something here."
Tate said Caraway was in a bad spot because nothing he could have done would make him look good. If he had pushed Rousey away, it would have looked bad because he shouldn't put his hands on a woman.
Caraway ended up doing the smart thing by remaining quiet during the segment.
"She was really making a point of messing with him and Bryan was – again – in a lose-lose situation where he couldn't do anything without looking like he was in the wrong," Tate said. "He couldn't put his hand on her and even gently push her away, because then he's putting his hands on a woman. He couldn't really say anything because she was obviously doing this to clown him and that would be playing right into her hands. So I decided to help him by going up there and telling Ronda she had no business being that close to my boyfriend."
"What the cameras didn't show from that whole incident at the bar was even after the big argument, Ronda came up to the bar and slammed her glass down so hard she broke it," Tate said. "I don't think she intended to break the glass, but she was so mad it broke and she threw it down on the floor behind the bar. And this area behind the bar was tiny, the bartender, this young lady, had nowhere to go when this glass shattered around her feet. And Ronda didn't even apologize - she said 'Give me my drink.' I can't believe what a brat Ronda is. I can't wait to punch her in the face come December 28."
