Miesha Tate is the latest celebrity athlete to join in ESPN The Magazine's Body Issue, and fans are excited to get their hands on the mag when it hits stands on July 12.

Tate, a popular MMA fighter, may feel she has something to prove with the pictorial, since her opposing coach in the new season of "The Ultimate Fighter", bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey, was on last year's cover. The two women reportedly have a history of bad blood and genuinely don't like each other.

"It's going exactly the way you thought it would be going: bad," UFC President Dana White said of filming. "Dead serious. Miesha and Ronda hate each other. It's literally crazy drama every day. It's irritating."

This year's Chosen Ones also include Mets’ pitcher Matt Harvey, San Francisco 49ers’ quarterback Colin Kaepernick, Dever Nuggets’ Kenneth Faried, Courtney Force, John Wall, Vernon Davis, John Isner, Sydney Leroux, Carly Booth, Joffrey Lupul, Elena Hight, Agnieszka Radwanska, Chris Sharma and Daila Ojeda, Marlen Esparza, Tarah Gieger and 77-year-old golf legend Gary Player.
