Miesha Tate and Ronda Rousey may never fight in the Octagon again, but that doesn't mean their rivalry is squashed.

Tate, who retired after a loss in November 2016 at UFC 205, hasn't expressed any interest in returning to the sport as a participant, however, during a Reddit Ask Me Anything session Wednesday, she expressed confidence when discussing a potential third fight with Rousey.

"The animosity is very real," Tate replied when asked about the hatred between the two fighters. "It's just not at the forefront of my life anymore.

"If we fought a third time, I know I would win."

Rousey defeated Tate by submission in both of their previous contests, in March 2012 and December 2013.

While Tate has officially retired, Rousey walked away after two embarrassing losses without much explanation, a move her rival did not approve of.

"We all lose," Tate replied when asked if she feels sympathy for Rousey. "It just depends how you take it afterwards.

"I don't really respect her decision to walk away from the sport that gave her so much."
