Former bantamweight champion Miesha Tate did not take lightly to divisional rival Aspen Ladd’s weight miss on the scales prior to UFC Fight Night 193.

Following the conclusion of Saturday’s event, Tate responded to an apologetic statement issued earlier in the week by Ladd and accused her of cheating.

“It’s one thing to miss weight, it’s another thing to try and cheat the scale and use every excuse in the book to not weigh in properly,” Tate wrote on Twitter. “Everyone saw you cheat and still came in a (pound) over. I bet you were every bit of 139.”

Tate elaborated on her accusation in a follow-up tweet. According to Tate, she thinks Ladd purposely avoided the backstage digital scale in order to use cheating tactics on the less-accurate beam scale in front of the media.

“Because she wanted to cheat the real scale and she knew if she checked before hand that she couldn’t explain why the (pounds) suddenly disappeared when she got behind a curtain she could grab onto,” Tate wrote.
