It was a situation involving Rousey wanting out of the contract to fight Tweet that led to the issues between the two.
“That was back when Gina (Carano) was slated to come back in Strikeforce and couldn’t get medical clearance,” Tweet said. “The fight was the night after our fight, so Strikeforce went knocking on her door and said, ‘Can you come fight with us?’ She was already in a contract with me. My organization that I was fighting for came to me and said, ‘Do you want to let her out of the contract?’ And I went, ‘Um, no.’ That’s why we sign a contract – so if a better offer comes along you don’t just jump out of it and take that better offer.
“Things got a little heated when I wouldn’t let her out. So, that is where the animosity comes from.”
