Miesha Tate will shoot herself in the face if Ronda Rousey armbars her at UFC 168

USA TODAY Sports

I like Miesha Tate's face, so hopefully she's able to win her next fight against Ronda Rousey. Or at least make it to the judges' scorecards!

Guns don't kill people. People kill people.

Especially if they happen to lose a mixed martial arts (MMA) fight by way of submission, something that happened to Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) top female bantamweight contender Miesha Tate under the Strikeforce banner back in March of 2012.

The recently unwrapped "Cupcake" was victimized by Ronda Rousey and her seemingly unstoppable armbar.

It should come as no surprise then, to learn that Tate is working on her judo defense, to help avoid ending up in a similar situation when they hook 'em up for a second time at the upcoming UFC 168 pay-per-view (PPV) event, which takes place on Dec. 28, 2013 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

And if she does ... well, it could get ugly (via MMA Fight Corner):

"It's never too early to train and practice that gameplan over and over and over, I'm going to beat it into my skull if I have to. Swear to God, she's not going to armbar me if it's the last thing I do. I will seriously shoot myself in the face before I leave that cage if she armbars me again. It can't happen ... That's what I'm going to do from now until December 28, it's going to be an anti-judo camp."

On the bright side, at least she'll go out with a bang.

Tate cut to the front of the 135-pound line after news broke that Cat Zingano was injured and unable to handle her coaching duties opposite the former Olympian for The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 18, which is expected to air on Wednesday nights beginning September 4, 2013 on FOX Sports 1.

Sorry, no lesbian hook-ups.

To date, no fighter has been able to escape "Rowdy's" first-round armbar through 10 fights (three amateur and seven professional). Whether or not Tate can do it remains to be seen, but let's just hope there aren't any firearms present inside the Octagon.

Just in case.
