Miesha Tate: The Battle Beyond The Octagon: A Deep Dive into Mental Health & Self Discovery University of Adversity

    • Personal Journals

Miesha Tate, also lovingly known as “Cupcake,” is not your conventional MMA fighter. Starting her fighting career at just 19, Miesha quickly realized her passion for the sport and its capability to redefine societal norms. Despite the constant underestimation and misunderstanding that she faced, she emboldened herself to challenge these stigmas, paving a path for women in a predominantly male-oriented sport. As a testament to her fight against these norms, she became a UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion in 2016, among other titles.
After retiring in 2016, Miesha spent five years rekindling her competitive spirit and building a family with her fiancé, Johnny Nuñez. Not one to fit into boxes, Miesha also demonstrated her fighting spirit on the CBS reality show, ‘Celebrity Big Brother,’ setting a record victory on season 3.
Miesha’s commitment extends beyond the ring. As a certified Behavioral Change coach, she has a deep-seated passion for helping others achieve their goals. Currently ranked 15th in the world, Miesha looks forward to her next UFC victory on December 2nd, 2023.
