UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey wrapped up filming of season 18 of The Ultimate Fighter where she serves as a coach opposite rival Miesha Tate. Rousey was recently a guest on SiriusXM Fight Club radio where she once again publicly went after Tate for her “fake personality”.
“We finished filming. You’ll see I focused on my fighters. Miesha was just a fake little (expletive) worried about her hair… Tate is a huge hypocrite. She hates my guts, but the reality is she has more opportunities because I beat her (expletive)… She is going to try a second time. But the reality is I will always train harder than her, and she will always be second.”
There is certainly no love lost here.
This season of the ultimate fighter is going to be one of the most interesting and anticipated season because of the animosity between the coaches and the rematche between the two will be one of the biggest pay-per view draws of the year.
The animosity between Tate and Rousey is what will lead to one of the epic rivalries in the sport and could be exactly what women’s mixed martial arts needs to make that breakthrough to the main stream. Thanks to Rousey, the sport is already getting there.
