According to a Jan. 18 tweet from the Seattle Seahawks, the team is proud to welcome UFC bantamweight contender Miesha Tate (13-5) as a special guest for their NFC Championship Game appearance against the San Francisco 49ers.

The Seahawks vs 49ers contest goes down on Jan. 19 at CenturyLink Field in Seattle, Wash., and Tate has confirmed that she will be in attendance.

"@MieshaTate Honored to have one of Washington's finest join us," the Seahawks tweeted from their official Twitter handle.

The tweet was a response to Tate's original post about how she planned to be at the game.

"I am SO excited to be attending the @Seahawks game tomorrow! Im gonna lose my voice I know it! #GoHawks #12thMan," Tate tweeted.

Tate, 27, is a lifelong Seattle Seahawks fan and she always does her part to show support for Washington-based sports teams.

Tate even went so far as to paint her nails bright green in honor of the Seahawks.

"Starting to paint my nails for the big game tomorrow! #GoHawks #WeAre12," Tate tweeted.

In early-January, Tate passionately defended her Seahawks fandom after a fan called her out for essentially being a fairweather fan.

Tate, who was born and raised in Tacoma, Wash., admits she has a lot to learn about the team, but she says she has every right to support her home state by wearing Seahawks apparel in photos on her social media pages.

"@EricHolden @00Snowflake @Seahawks I still have things to learn but Ive always rooted for the @Seahawks and I always will!!" Tate tweeted.

The Seattle Seahawks host the San Francisco 49ers on Jan. 19, and the winner will advance to Super Bowl XLVIII.
