That sounds reasonable enough, but his explanation for thinking that way raised plenty of eyebrows in the fight community. Not only did Mr. Machine say Rousey is more attractive than her "TUF 18" counterpart, he took matters a step further by saying Tate looks like an opossum.
“@EricHolden: #askMrMachine who do you find more attractive.. Ronda Rousey or Miesha Tate?” Ronda! Miesha looks like a opossum," Machine tweeted on Sept. 15.
The post was retweeted by three of his followers, and favorited by two others.
War Machine's tweets are typically racy, and basically the opposite of what fight fans would deem as politically correct.
The Bellator MMA star is known for tweeting whatever happens to be on his mind, without regard for who it might offend.
Some love it and others hate it, but the Bellator MMA star may be more intelligent than some give him credit for, as his wacky tweets helped him notch over 22,000 Twitter followers.
Has it taken it too far this time by blasting Tate's physical appearance?
Before we come to that conclusion, it should be noted what Mr. Machine's ex-girlfriend had to say about him. Rachael Cummins, an ex-girlfriend of his, essentially chocked up War Machine's Twitter handle to a massive display of Internet trolling.
She thinks he just likes to get reactions from people, and his dig at Tate may have just been the latest in what has become a weekly tradition of offensive tweeting.
"He's actually not as crazy as everyone thinks," Cummins said of War Machine. "He would write stuff on the computer and be like 'I'm gonna see what kind of reaction I'm gonna get. People think he's so crazy. He's crazy, but he's not as crazy.. People think he's way crazier than he really is."
