As we reported earlier, filming began for Season 18 of the UFC’s reality series with Ronda Rousey as a coach.
Well I guess if you are Miesha Tate you won the lottery so to speak. You lose the fight to Cat Zingano which ultimately pushes you almost to the end of the line for a shot at the title, not to mention your name out of the spotlight for quite some time. And in one fair swoop you find yourself right back near the top.
Cat Zingano, who was suppose to be the second coach along side the UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion Ronda Rousey, injured her knee and has been replaced by Miesha Tate.
“This is what we really wanted all along. Everyone said an Ultimate Fighter between me and Miesha would be the best. We have a personal history with each other and this is a personal show. For some reason, me and Miesha are intertwined in fate like Ali and Frazier or something like that. I think people will look back at this as one of the monumental rivalries and look back at this as one of those things that really cemented women’s MMA.”Ronda Rousey
