Tate, who choked out former champion Ronda Rousey's conquerer Holly Holm for the title earlier this month, told international magazine Maxim of her unique post-fight diet.

"After a fight, I usually drink beer and then eat a cupcake, then I drink another beer and eat another cupcake. That's the thing I really look forward to. I gotta have a cupcake and a beer after a fight," Tate said

Next up, the 29-year-old American mixed martial arts fighter is all set for her Hollywood debut.

"It's called Fight Valley," Tate said of her upcoming flick going on to admit that she's not even half as good acting in front of the camera as she is while fighting in front of it.

"It's my first feature film. I just dove in and did the best I could. I don't think I'm gonna win any Academy awards on this one. I had fun with it, and hopefully will get more opportunities like that."

The film also stars Tate's Bantamweight title rival Holly Holm.

"The film is about two sisters, one poor and one rich, and one goes into underground fighting. I did it with Holly Holm and Cris Cyborg," added Tate.
