Rousey to Coach TUF 18; Men/Women Bantamweights to Compete
Women’s UFC Bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey will become the first female coach in TUF history along with the winner of the Miesha Tate versus Cat Zingano fight. On the TUF 17 Finale, Tate and Zingano will not only be fighting to be a The Ultimate Fighter 18 coach, but to become the challenger to Ronda Rousey’s belt.
White also announced that Bantamweights will compete on this season – both male and female. Never before have female competitors been contestants on TUF. The women and men are expected to share the fighter house together.
Tryouts for The Ultimate Fighter 18 will take place on April 15.
