Miesha Tate might be an animal in the Octagon, but she's also clearly skilled in the art of doing cover shoots!

The UFC women's bantamweight champ is getting featured on the cover of the June edition of Regard Magazine, one of the leading publications for fashion and celebrity lifestyle.

This is not only a big moment for Tate, who's been fighting professionally for nearly a decade now, but also for mixed martial arts in general. It's fantastic to finally see these fighters getting the recognition they deserve, not just as athletes, but also for their abilities outside of the Octagon as performers, spokespeople, entrepreneurs, and yes, even fashion models.

So well done, Miesha Tate! She'll be fighting again very soon, defending her title against Amanda Nunes at UFC 200 next month.
