Miesha Tate talks favorite fighters, secret talents, "default" and more

In the December issue of "Fitness Gurls" (for the love of God, please spell it GIRLS) shoots some photos and talks some MMA and personal life:

Why she picked wrestling:

Wrestling was the only sport offered winter quarter other than basketball and I just can’t play basketball at all I’m horrible at it so out of default I went out for wrestling and instantly fell in love.

Favorite Fighters:

- Fedor

- Megumi Fujii

- Ben Henderson

Excellent picks, excellent picks.

"Secret Talents":

I don’t know if you would call it a talent but I can make weird shapes with my tongue that I’ve found most people can not do. I’ve heard it’s genetic, either you can or you can’t.

Something to definitely consider if you ever took a photo with her in person.

Music and diets:

I like to juice a lot of fresh fruits and veggies. I also make fresh fruit and veggie smoothies. I do eat meat but I could probably be pretty content as a vegetarian.

I like to listen to motivational speeches when I work out, weird right?

Miesha Tate you may remember from repeatedly shooting double legs only to get Judo tossed into oblivion again and again, against Ronda Rousey. She picked up $75,000 in the Fight of the Night defeat.

Two of my favorites from the shoot. I feel like there's way too much photo shop going on, and Miesha has thick legs, but surprisingly her torso/midsection is actually really thin, but maybe that's just the "air brushing".
