Tonya Evinger thinks Miesha Tate is ducking her

During the Jan. 16 episode of MMA Roasted, hard-hitting knockout artist Tonya "Triple Threat" Evinger (13-5) told show host Adam Hunter that she hopes to fight UFC bantamweight contender Miesha "Cupcake" Tate sometime in the near future.

Evinger, 32, says she's been trying to set up a match against Tate for years, but that it never came to fruition for a variety of reasons.

"I've had a lot of problems with her in the past," Evinger said of Tate on the MMA Roasted podcast. "She's ran her mouth a lot and avoided fighting me for years. I pretty much will do whatever I have to to kind of bully people into fighting me sometimes.

"I've been fighting for a long time. It's hard to get fights and stuff. That's kind of why I quit wrestling. I wrestled for 15 years or whatever and it's hard to get as much competition."

Evinger went on to say she would be open to a fight against any high-level female fighter, either at 125 or 135 pounds.

"I'll fight anybody. I don't really care," she said. "As long as they're paying me cash money, I'm down, let's do it."

"Triple Threat" is riding a four-fight win streak, while Tate has dropped three of her past four.

Despite Evinger's impressive hot streak, Tate is ranked higher than her on most MMA ranking sites.

"Triple Threat" hopes to prove someday that she's the better athlete.

"I just want to fight her, man," Evinger said of Tate. "It's been a freakin' long time and she's ran her mouth so freakin' long. I just want to fight her. I really don't give a sh** what card it's on or what the deal is. I just want to fight her."
