Miesha Tate nude pics in ESPN magazine 'Body Issue' coming July 12

Esther Lin for Showtime

Good news for mixed martial arts (MMA) fans, bad news for Bryan Caraway.

Like it or not, Miesha Tate and Ronda Rousey have a lot in common.

Not only did they both hold the Strikeforce Women's Bantamweight Championship, they've also both appeared nude for ESPN in the magazine's "Body Issue." You've already seen "Rowdy" without her threads (pics), and now you'll get to see "Cupcake" without her wrapper, too.

Nostradumbass gives this announcement three thumbs up.

This year's offering, which also includes Matt Harvey (New York Mets), Colin Kaepernick (San Francisco 49ers) and Kenneth Faried (Denver Nuggets), hits newsstands on July 12, 2013 (full list of athletes here).

Tate will be asked to keep her clothes on when she coaches opposite Rousey in this year's Ultimate Fighter (TUF), leading a cast of co-ed mixed martial arts (MMA) hopefuls through season 18 with a potential "six-figure contract" with Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) hanging in the balance.

After that?

The two coaches tangle in December for "Rowdy's" UFC strap (details here), still the one thing (Olympic medal notwithstanding) she has that Tate doesn't.

Yet.
