Miesha Tate on Fitness Gurls cover

Strong is the new skinny.

The former Strikeforce women’s bantamweight champion
Miesha “Cupcake” Tate knows how to strike a modeling
pose as well as she knows how to apply a chokehold. On the cover of
the newest issue of Fitness Gurls magazine is the toned and curvy,
No. 1 contender Tate in a string bikini making a generation of
people thoroughly jealous of her boyfriend/coach, UFC bantamweight
Bryan Caraway.

The 27-year-old with a 13-4 professional record has become quite
the celebrity in her own right while chasing after a rematch with
her bitter rival UFC women’s bantamweight champ Ronda Rousey.
A one time high school women’s state wrestling champion in
Washington who began MMA in college after joining an MMA club
created by Caraway, “Cupcake” landed a spot early this
year in ESPN magazine’s famed Body Issue and is the opposing
coach to Rousey on this season’s The Ultimate Fighter, which
will conclude with their title fight at UFC 168.

Judging by how she looks in a barely there swimsuit, cupcakes
are for nicknames and not for eating in Tate’s diet.
