Why beat around the bush and pretend this post serves another purpose? Ladies and gentleman, here’s the nude photo of UFC fighter Miesha Tate that will appear in ESPN The Magazine’s “The Body Issue.”

The photo, taken by Ben Watts and first released to nydailynews.com, appears in Friday’s new edition of the magazine.

Tate is one of 21 athletes who appears in various states of undress for the annual “Body” edition.

Tate, a former Strikeforce champion, recently made her UFC debut at The Ultimate Fighter 17 Finale and suffered a loss to Cat Zingano, who mounted a third-round comeback to get the TKO victory. Zingano then earned the right to coach opposite Rousey on “The Ultimate Fighter 18,” but due to a knee injury, Tate recently replaced her. Rousey (7-0 MMA, 1-0 UFC) and Tate (13-4 MMA, 0-1 UFC) are the first females to serve as head coaches on the show, which debuts Sept. 4 on FOX Sports 1 with a coed cast of bantamweights.

They next meet in a title fight and rematch at the show’s conclusion as the headliners of the year-end UFC 168 event. The fighters first met in 2012, when Rousey took Tate’s Strikeforce title via her usual first-round armbar.

Previous MMA fighters featured in the “Body” issue include Rousey, Jon Jones and Gina Carano.
