Dana White says Miesha Tate beating Ronda Rousey would be the 2nd greatest upset in UFC history

USA TODAY Sports

Miesha Tate is a massive underdog against Ronda Rousey tomorrow, but where would a win place her on the list of greatest upsets in UFC history?

Presently, Miesha Tate is a high as a +590 underdog against Ronda Rousey, who already holds a 1st round armbar win over her back in Strikeforce. Rousey can fetch -800 in the betting lines as we approach fight day, and she's expected to dominate again. But in this crazy year of upsets and close shaves, a Tate win would be a stunning result. Dana White was interviewed on Fox Sports Live last night and was asked where he would rank Tate over Rousey in a list of famous UFC upsets: (Quotes via Damon Martin of Foxsports.com)

"Even if Miesha Tate beats Ronda Rousey I would still have to say when Matt Serra beat Georges St-Pierre, that's got to be the biggest upset ever in UFC history,"

"It's No. 2 for sure," White said where Tate beating Rousey would fit in the all time UFC upset list.

Unlike Serra, who earned his title shot by winning The Ultimate Fighter season 4 tournament, Tate is coming off of a loss to Cat Zingano and is only in this title fight because of Zingano's knee injury. It would certainly be a shock to the system, and I wouldn't have too much issue with that ranking. I would only have Serra/GSP, Edgar/Penn I, and Couture/Sylvia above a Tate win over Rousey as far as UFC history is concerned. If we expanded beyond just the UFC and did MMA as a whole? Seth Petruzelli over Kimbo Slice bar none.

What do you think of Dana White's comment? Where would you historically rank a Tate over Rousey outcome in a list of UFC upsets?
