Miesha Tate got a little revenge on the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department.

After video of Officer Russel Mettke stealing a glance at Tate's backside during the UFC 196's weigh-ins went viral, the new UFC women's bantamweight champion paid a visit to the LVMPD and posted the clip to her Instagram page.

Video of the original UFC 196 weigh-ins clip can be seen below. Officers were onstage to prevent any further scuffle between the event's headliners, Conor McGregor and Nate Diaz.

In an inspirational performance, Tate submitted Holly Holm via fifth-round rear-naked choke to become the UFC women's bantamweight champion at UFC 196.

Tate is next expected to defend her title against Ronda Rousey, although she has already voiced doubts about Rousey's status as an active UFC fighter.
