Tate, 27, is a native of the state of Washington, and a proud member of Seahawks nation. She's hoping to get in on one of the greatest traditions in the NFL, Seattle's weekly raising of the 12th man flag.
The Seahawks have a fantastic team this year, and are one of the favorites to reach the Super Bowl. Tate recently took to Twitter to get the ball rolling on her goal of raising the flag.
"@CoastalRaven if you help me raise the 12th man flag for the @Seahawks you got yourself a deal!" Tate tweeted on Sept. 24.
The tradition of raising a 12th man stadium flag before kickoff, by either season ticket holders or celebrities, began in Seattle in 2003, and is still going strong in 2013.
As most football leagues allow a maximum of eleven players per team on the playing field at a time, referring to a team's fans as the 12th man implies that they have a potentially helpful role in the game.
When it comes to the NFL, the Seattle Seahawks are known to have one of the greatest home field advantages in the league due to their extremely loud fan base.
At every home game just before kickoff, the Seahawks flag is raised in honor of the 12th man, Seattle's loyal football fanatics.
From former Seahawks greats, to local celebrities and sports personalities, being called upon to raise the flag has become an honor within itself. Tate is hoping to become the latest in a long line of flag raisers, which have included the likes of Shawn Kemp, Jason Terry, Felix Hernandez, Gary Payton and others.
If Tate earns the nod, she will become the first female UFC star to have the opportunity to hoist Seattle's 12th man flag.
Fight fans can help the cause by tweeting the Seahawks' official Twitter handle, @Seahawks, along with Tate's official Twitter handle, @MieshaTate, with the hash tag #TeamTate.
