Strikeforce's Miesha Tate has the biggest fight of her professional career tonight when she faces Ronda Rousey in the main event of the Strikeforce show in Columbus, OH.

Sadly, most of the attention that should be focused on Tate and her accomplishments have now been turned towards her boyfriend Bryan Caraway, who decided last night that he'd had enough of Rousey's trash-talking and started firing back.

@colbub and if she wants to challenge a man I'll knock her teeth dwn her throat the break her arm!

Such a classy move from Caraway, proving his manhood by telling the world that he will punch Rousey in the face and break her arm. And then, as if to prove his point, Caraway reminds us that women have a role in life.

@n3rdgazmcom@mieshatate proud of what?? She gonna talk smack she needs to know her place

Fans immediately began responding to Caraway's senseless comments, and the former Ultimate Fighter competitor went into spin mode. He deleted several of the offending tweets, including the first one I quoted above.

@PADDYKILLZ@cmpunk@frontrowbrian oh I dnt hit Women! But she not a women. She gonna act like a dude she can deal w the consequences.

To every1 who actually knows me knows I'm a nice guy! I didn't mean anything bad or threatening and I'm NOT a woman beater At ALL.

I just believe athetlically and on the same talent level woman can't overall compete w men. Look at data

Do I believe Caraway is a bad guy? No, I don't. Caraway and Tate have been happily dating for many years and he's never been more than the model boyfriend and trainer.

But it's obvious that Caraway could really benefit from those "How NOT To Use Twitter" classes the UFC conducts at their yearly Fighter Summit at the Red Rock Casino in Las Vegas each summer. Caraway missed the last one due to the Ultimate Fighter.

Someone at Zuffa better make sure he attends the next one, before he says something he'll really regret.
