Default Miesha Tate goes nuts on Twitter after Bellator downgrades Zoila Gurgel

From MMAFighting.com:

In late August, Bellator made a big deal about the return of its women's champion, Zoila Gurgel.

Turns out it may not be that big of a deal after all. That's because "The Warrior Princess" has been relegated to the un-televised portion of the Bellator 78 fight card, which goes down this Friday night (Oct. 26, 2012) from Wright State's Nutter Center in Dayton, Ohio.

And that makes former Strikeforce Women's champion Miesha Tate mad:
"I cannot believe [Bellator] would allow [its] champion to be placed on the UN televised undercard in her hometown. A champion is a champion regardless if she is fighting up a weight, u use her image to promote the posters & then put her on the undercard?! Blows my mind. This is the 2nd time too you have done this I tell you what I would rather never fight MMA again then fight for u under @BellatorMMA banner.... The amount of disrespect you have given @ZoilaGurgel is disgusting."
Gurgel is likely being punished for her scathing remarks about Bellator CEO Bjorn Rebney, who "threw her under the bus" and "dissed her" earlier this year while she was stuck on the sidelines rehabbing a devastating knee injury.

You can read her beef right here.
To add insult to injury, Gurgel will have to fight the 4-2 Casey Noland, who's coming off a loss in last year's Bellator debut. We're talking about a girl who has already beaten both Megumi Fujii and Jessica Aguilar and is currently riding a six-fight win streak.
Certainly sounds fishy. But is anyone joining "Cupcake" in her anti-Bellator crusade?
