Miesha Tate 'weirded out' by fans who tweet about her feet

According to a Jan. 3 report from Bloody Elbow, hard-hitting knockout artist Miesha Tate (13-5) had some success on her feet during her UFC 168 title fight against Ronda Rousey.

Tate, 27, showed off some fancy footwork during her fight with Rousey, but she fell just a bit short in the end.

Tate lost to Rousey via armbar in the third round of their UFC 168 tilt.

Tate is quite proud to show off her footwork inside the cage, but outside of it she admits she gets "weirded out" when fight fans talk about her feet on social media platforms such as Twitter and Facebook.

"Cupcake" says she's quite aware that one of the top suggestions that pops up when you Google search her name is "Miesha Tate's feet," and she explained that it makes her uncomfortable to think about.

Tate says it's odd when people tweet her about her feet, and she noted that it happens far more often than she would care to discuss.

“It’s really weird,” she said. “I think it’s very weird that there’s people out there that have a foot fetish. I get people that tweet me about my feet. There’s this one guy that doesn’t even speak English, and he writes me all the time. He’s like, ‘Miesha’ – he writes in really broken English – ‘Can I please smell your stinky feet?’ So creepy and weird.

“It’s just one of those things that I try not to pay a lot of attention to, because it really weirds me out. That’s obviously not my goal, to appease people with a foot fetish. But also, I have no control over it. I’m not going to hide my feet.”

Hopefully Tate's public announcement about the matter will cause fight fans to quit creeping on her via Twitter.

If it makes her uncomfortable, people should stop tweeting her about her feet.
