Video: UFC 200's Miesha Tate serves as Grand Marshal at Nascar Sprint Cup Series

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) women's Bantamweight champion Miesha Tate got all the engines running earlier today (no not his), as she served as Grand Marshal for Nascar Sprint Cup Series Firekeepers Casino 400 at Michigan International Speedway.

No stranger to NASCAR, as she is represented by Ken Harvick's management team, Tate got the nod thanks in large part to her new role as the face of the UFC's women's 135-pound division.

Of course, not one to miss out on the moment (courtesy of MLive), Tate finished off the infamous "drivers, start your engines" line with the flexing and kissing of her biceps; a trademark of hers after every successful weigh-in.

"Cupcake" will look to defend her title for the first time when she faces off against Amanda Nunes in main card action at the upcoming UFC 200 event, which is set to pop off on July 9, 2016 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
