According to an Aug. 5 tweet from Miesha Tate, the beautiful UFC bantamweight superstar has transformed her look from brunette bombshell to dazzling blonde diva. Tate, who turns 28 in just two weeks, treated herself to an early birthday present by visiting critically-acclaimed Las Vegas hair stylist Max Maddux on Tuesday afternoon. A specialist in hair color, cutting, extensions and more, Maddux is one of the best in the world at what he does.
As expected, he left Tate looking funky and fresh, a far cry from her boring old look. By the time Tate left shop, she had some of the brightest, sexiest blonde streaks of anyone on the UFC roster. It's safe to say Tate will be the talk of the town when she heads to Japan for her UFC Fight Night bout against Rin Nakai, as she walked away from Maddux's facility with a sizzling head of golden locks.
Here's the thing: Tate has always embraced her good looks. She knows the casual fan comes for the looks, and then stays for the skill. Just because a female fighter is beautiful doesn't mean she can't scrap like her male counterparts. Tate is absolutely stunning, but brings it hard when she fights in the UFC. Tate has notched thousands of fans on social media for being just one of the girls, but that doesn't mean she's not one of the most talented female athletes in the world. Tate is a lady in everyday life, and a beast inside the cage.
Why would Tate transform her hairstyle to what she has now? No one knows for sure, but there are several possible explanations. One reason may be just that she has some down time before her fight with Nakai, so she was looking to do something fun and exciting to get people talking. Another possible explanation is the fact that she has a birthday coming up, which means she probably wants to look extra pretty for her big day. Tate turns 28 on Aug. 18.
Also, Tate's fight against Nakai will be viewed by millions across the globe. That said, Tate will want to look her best for her upcoming UFC bout. Another reason why Tate went blonde might be that the UFC always has several dark-haired females on its roster, so her new look may help her stand out from the pack.
WWE star Seth Rollins recently revealed that he put blonde streaks in his hair to set himself apart from Adam Rose, Bo Dallas and Roman Reigns. The gimmick worked, as he emerged into one of the most popular stars on the WWE roster. Tate appears to be following down the same path, setting herself apart in a way that fans will remember her.
