UFC 168: Miesha Tate says Ronda Rousey is not 'invincible,' she’s just been built up that way

And "Cupcake" plans to get a finish over "Rowdy" when they meet at UFC 168 to prove her point.

Though she's looked the part, going undefeated (7-0, 1-0 UFC) so far in her mixed martial arts (MMA) career and winning all of her fights in the very first round via armbar, Ronda Rousey is not as invincible as people have made her out to be.

That's according to comments made during Tuesday's (Dec. 17, 2013) UFC 168 media conference call by "Rowdy's" bitter rival, Miesha Tate.

Her words:

"There are always weaknesses in her game. I think a lot of people have built Ronda up to be this invincible person and that there's no way that she can be beaten. But, I don't see it that way at all. I see a lot of holes in her game and I see a lot of ways she can be exploited. But, just because it hasn't happened yet, doesn't mean it won't ever happen. You know what I mean? And I'm going to do something different on the 28th that anybody else has done. Those holes are there. You guys saw it, I saw it and I don't think that it needs any explanation, they are there and they are waiting to be taken advantage of."

"Cupcake" will attempt to dethrone the first-ever Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) women's bantamweight champion at UFC 168 on Dec. 28, 2013 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Rousey already holds a victory over "Cupcake," defeating her a year and half ago under the Strikeforce banner. And though Tate knows firsthand just what kind of thunder Rousey brings into the cage (pic), she's determined to do things differently when they lock horns one more time in "Sin City."

Not only that, Miesha plans to get a finish over the champion to prove -- much like this guy did -- that no one is invincible in the fight game.

Can she pull off the upset?
