Unless you've been living under a rock for the past three weeks, you're well aware at this point that Miesha Tate is the UFC Women's Bantamweight Champion. But here's the thing; she just might be the hottest woman walking the planet.
Even Mr. Magoo could tell you that Tate is very physically attractive, but there are a lot of factors that go into determining how hot somebody is. Let's take a look at Paris Hilton as an example. "On Paper" she is extremely attractive as she is symmetrical and has a very pretty face. She also has luscious blonde hair that women would kill for. There is no disputing that she is stunning. But listening to her talk for five seconds automatically makes her way less attractive. She's also had countless issues with the law and is a brutal role model for today's youth. When ugly personality traits start to accumulate, it can easily make someone who is "attractive" become repulsive. The way a person carries themselves directly impacts their hotness.
Miesha Tate on the other hand, just seems to have it all going on. She is gorgeous, well-spoken, polite, and is a tremendous representative for women's MMA (and women in general). There are a lot of characters in MMA and when your job is to "throw down" for a living, it's clear that not everyone can get along. With that in mind, it's very rare that someone will have a bad thing to say about Tate as she tends to keep things classy (with the exception of Ronda Rousey and her clan).
Without further ado, we will now divulge the top 11 reasons why Miesha Tate is the hottest woman alive.

11 Gracious Winner
Miesha Tate became the Bantamweight Women's Champion at UFC 196, and has been doing a whirlwind of media obligations since then. She has been extremely complimentary towards Holly Holm and is always quick to thank her teammates, and wants to make sure that everyone that supported her feels involved in the win. Xtreme Couture's (the gym at which Tate trains) manager, Erick Nicksick maintains that the first thing she did on the Monday was bring the belt to the gym and proceed to help her teammates train for their upcoming fights: "It was a great moment, I think, the way that Miesha came in and shared that moment, it made everyone feel like they were part of that championship." He finished off by saying: "She didn't need to come in on a Monday" (especially considering she had just won the biggest fight of her life, not even 48 hours earlier).
In 2013, former champ (man, it feels good to say that) Ronda Rousey was slated to coach against Cat Zingano on The Ultimate Fighter. Zingano ended up bowing out of the show, and the fight, due to a knee injury. This was the worst thing that could have happened to Rousey because Miesha Tate ended up filling in for the injured Zingano and became every MMA fan's sweetheart within weeks. Rousey ended up vilifying herself with her antics, while Tate would just smirk and continue to win over the audience. She looked like she was up to something whenever she'd flash that smile and it drove Rousey over the deep-end.
9 Athletic Body
Alright, let's talk about some fun stuff! Miesha Tate has a rockin' body. It's curvy and strong, yet feminine at the same time. There's a misconception in today's society that men are drawn to very skinny women; the body types that you would see walking down a runway. The fact of the matter is that men aren't drawn to women that look like a human Slim Jim with a dress hanging off them. It's 2016, strength and athleticism are extremely sexy!
8 Doesn't Matter What She's Wearing
It truly does not matter what she is wearing, though some would say less is better. Obviously, she looks stunning in any of her outfits that she wears to UFC events, but she looks equally as good simply in casual wear or gym attire. When you're that hot, it doesn't really matter what you're wearing as you can pull off anything. She also looked particularly good in a pink bikini...at a certain pool party in Vegas. Just sayin'
7 Fighting Style and Warrior Spirit
There's something compelling and endearing about an underdog. In any movie or fictional circumstance, it's never a smooth road for the protagonist (or else it would be a pretty bland story). We're drawn to people who face odds and then somehow rally to overcome them. Miesha Tate is a real-life example of these fictional characters that we cheer for. Whether she was fighting Julie Kedzie, Liz Carmouche, Sara McMann, Jessica Eye, or Holly Holm, she was behind in every single fight and somehow rallied for a comeback.
6 She Can Kick Your Ass
She may be a female that fights at 135 pounds, but don't get it twisted - she can kick your ass. All the top UFC Bantamweight women train with Bantamweight men, and can even give them a run for their money in certain simulated fighting instances. Would we ever imply that we could beat up a male Bantamweight?
These chicks are trained fighters and can do whatever they want to us...who cares? It's kind of hot. Imagine Miesha Tate sexily proclaiming: "I'm going to do whatever I want with you."
Have at it!
5 Her "Derriere"
J'Lo doesn't hold a candle to Miesha Tate's booty...yeah, we just went there. Let's put it in perspective, Ronda Rousey is Tate's most bitter rival and sworn enemy. Before the filming of The Ultimate Fighter, Rousey insulted Tate's skills but indirectly complimented her at the same time. She maintained that Tate was only chosen because she has "a nice ass."
When a sworn enemy acknowledges an attractive feature, it HAS to be good. It would be like Venom telling Spiderman that he likes his outfit.
4 Beauty in her Imperfections
If you look at Miesha Tate's face, it isn't perfect (no one's is). But when you're a professional fighter, there's no way around the fact that your face is going to take some damage. Her nose has been busted up countless times. She also has a mild case of "cauliflower ears," which is something that all fighters have to deal with after years of grappling.
But we can find beauty in these imperfections. Cindy Crawford will go down as one of the hottest women to ever walk the earth, yet she had a mole on the top of her left lip. Mole's are not desirable, but Crawford was so beautiful that she managed to rock it like nobody else could and it became a trademark.
While a slightly bigger nose and mild cauliflower ears aren't the most attractive features, we can find perfection within her imperfections.
We live in a time where the probability of divorce is at an all time high. These numbers are only exacerbated when dealing with couples that have celebrity status as they are constantly in the limelight and are faced with sinful temptations every single day.
Miesha Tate and her boyfriend, fellow UFC fighter Bryan Caraway, have been together for over ten years. They have been in each other's corner (literally, they actually corner each other), since the very beginning and have not looked back.
It's admirable that there isn't jealousy on Caraway's part and it's even more commendable on Tate's part that she hasn't strayed. Once someone becomes a star, it's far too common for that person to be sucked into alluring circumstances. Tate's loyalty makes her even hotter!
Miesha Tate saved Bryan Caraway's mother's life.
Tate, Caraway, and his parents were all taking a vacation in Cancun and decided to go on a snorkelling excursion. Caraway's mother is extremely asthmatic and needs to carry around an inhaler, which happened to have fallen off her bathing suit while she was swimming. By the time she swam to the boat to go pickup the second inhaler, it was too late. Her face was "cartoonish blue" (Caraway's exact words) and CPR was simply not working. To make matters worse, nobody really saw what happened, all they knew was that she had stopped breathing.
As they ran out of options (and were running out of time), Tate picked up the inhaler, took ten puffs and started giving Caraway's mom mouth-to-mouth: “I just knew that inhalers are bronchial dilators and that they relax the bronchial tubes, so I knew that the only way she was going to be able to breathe on her own was if we could get it in there. We’d tried to spray it in her mouth a few times, but there was no air going in or out.”
Tate turned into a doctor and a superhero. After a few breaths with Tate's method, she began to gurgle, and slowly started to breathe again.
It was only a little over two years ago where Miesha Tate was looking at three losses in four fights, and her lone win vs. Julie Kedzie was far from impressive. Two of these losses were also Title fights against her bitter rival, Ronda Rousey. Many pundits were questioning her value (other than her looks) and some were even suggesting that she could be on the chopping block had she lost to Liz Carmouche.
Tate would not be deterred and would simply not listen to the naysayers as she would go on to rattle off four wins in a row against top contenders in the division, en route to her Championship win against Holly Holm.
Her determination, puts her above and beyond.
