Pic: Miesha Tate defeats Ronda Rousey in the first round ... of the EA Sports UFC video game cover vote

Jayne Kamin-Oncea-US PRESSWIRE

Perhaps the population in the "Armbar Nation" isn't as dense as we first thought?

And it's alllll overrrrrr!

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) women's bantamweight number one contender Miesha Tate has yet to fight Ronda Rousey at the UFC 168 pay-per-view (PPV) event, which takes place on Dec. 28, 2013 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, but she's already evened up the score with "Rowdy."

"Cupcake" was able to defeat her bitter rival in the first round (via fans' choice) in the cover vote for the new EA Sports UFC video game.

One down, two to go. The winner shares the cover with 205-pound champion Jon Jones (pic).

Also advancing were Michael Bisping, Anthony Pettis, Georges St-Pierre, Johny Hendricks, Jose Aldo, Alexander Gustafsson and Chael Sonnen. They will now go head-to-head in the second round of voting, which you can participate in by clicking here.

Will Tate go all the way? In the competition, I mean, as she now gets a stiff test in "The Mauler."

Too bad The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 18 has already finished filming, as this would have made a nice little wrinkle into the "Tate vs. Rousey" rivalry on FOX Sports 1.

See you in "Sin City."
