Miesha Tate's arm won't require surgery following Ronda Rousey fight

Miesha Tate's mangled arm won't require surgery and her recovery time is just a few short months.

Assembly not required.

Former Strikeforce Women's Bantamweight Champion Miesha Tate, whose arm is apparently made of the same elastic material Dan Hardy's is, has managed to avoid surgery on the arm Ronda Rousey twisted up during their Strikeforce title fight this past March 3 in Columbus, Ohio.

Tate tweeted the good news earlier today:

"Looks like no surgery!! Dr was impressed w progress so far! :)"

She also went on to tell fans she hopes to be back within the next few months. Her doctor apparently informed her the healing time for her injury is around three months but she's shooting for two.

Tough cookie.

Tate's already eying a rematch against Rousey once she is healthy but she'll have to get behind Sarah Kaufman, who fought her way to the top of the pecking order. But hey, at least we know she'll be able if and when that point comes.
