During the post-fight show on FOX Sports 1, Rousey explained that her denial of good sportsmanship has nothing to do with Tate's ability as a competitor, and everything to do with a slight she made against her training partners at some point.
"I respect her as a fighter. She did an amazing job tonight," Rousey said. "But I can't shake her hand until she apologizes to me and my team for what she said."
- With all of the action that went down at UFC 168 on Saturday night, UFC officials had their hands full when it came to deciding who deserved fight night bonuses. In the end - despite the plethora of finishes on the card - the bonuses were given to just three fighters, Ronda Rousey, Miesha Tate and Travis Browne.
Rousey and Tate took home Fight of the Night for their three round scrap, which Rousey eventually won with a signature armbar. Rousey also was awarded Submission of the Night, beating out an impressive Jim Miller. Browne earned himself the Knockout of the Night for dismantling Josh Barnett with brutal elbows while defending the takedown.
The night's bonuses were awarded in the amount of $75,000.
- UFC middleweight champ Chris Weidman and former champ Anderson Silva took home the biggest paydays from UFC 168, with their purses making up the bulk of the almost $1.9 million payroll - though the $600,000 Silva took home may not have been worth the gruesome injury he sustained while fighting. Check out the full list of fighter salaries below.
Chris Weidman ($200,000 + $200,000 = $400,000) defeated Anderson Silva ($600,000)
