TUF 18: Rousey vs. Tate preview (Video)


The Ronda Rousey and Miesha Tate rivalry is already one of the most heated in the sport, but the two women will only build that dislike for each other even more during the upcoming season 18 of The Ultimate Fighter. The show will feature fighters in the 135-pound weight class as men and women live together in the house for the first time in the reality show’s history.

During last night’s UFC on FOX 8 event in front of a national audience, the UFC rolled out their first preview for the upcoming season and we immediately caught a glimpse of some of the fireworks that we can expect.

From the action inside of the octagon to the fireworks between Rousey and Tate, this looks like it will be one of the best seasons to date — at the very least, it will be among the most highly rated seasons in the series’ storied history.

If you missed out on the video preview for the upcoming season of TUF, here is your chance to check it out. Trust me, this will get you excited to see what TUF 18 has to offer.

Rousey will defend her title against Tate in a highly anticipated rematch that will serve as the co-main event of the UFC’s year-end show on December 28 at UFC 168. The event will be headlined by the biggest rematch in UFC history between Chris Weidman and Anderson Silva.
