Ronda Rousey and Cat Zingano  UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey now knows that she’ll be coaching opposite Cat Zingano on The Ultimate Fighter 18, and that she’ll then defend her belt against her.

“The fight I really wanted was Cat,” Rousey admitted after all was said and done on Saturday night. But she readily admitted that she would have enjoyed tormenting Miesha Tate, whom Zingano defeated at the TUF 17 Finale.

Check out what else Ronda Rousey had to say in a scrum with reporters following the event.

    Anyone else notice the obscene amount of advertising this has already gotten. I counted 11 mentions, not including commercials, for Rouseys season of TUF between the end of the Tate/Zingano fight and the end of the broadcast. There were more mentions for this during the final 2 fights than there were for the upcoming Fox card with Henderson/Melendez and the Sonnen/Jones card combined.

    I love UFC with a passion…and I have nothing personal against WMMA, I think the Tate/Zingano fight stole the card in a big way last night. But I am getting tired of Rousey this, Rousey that…its pretty much all you see from the UFC these days…

      Well you better get used to it because Dana White loves her and that girl is going to open the UFC up to a whole new group of people.

      And what difference does it make? There was a time when people hated mma and what it stood for and there are people who still do…and if promoting this girl helps with the positive promotion of the sport…then why is it a bad thing?

      • Mark McDowall

        It doesn’t make any difference. I just don’t understand why you would talk about something so much that doesn’t happen until September when you’ve got 2 huge cards coming up in the next 2 weeks.

      the promo was so rushed. just clips from this season mixed with one of gilbert smith saying “this should be interesting.” probably talking about one of the fights.

      someone just threw that all together with a photoshop fight pose picture and felt all accomplished.

      Dana’s girl… that is all

      • JOE SHINE

        fringe benefits


    Just so glad Big Nose tate is out of the picture. Too much hate in Big Nose Tate.


    all that matters is Big Nose tate lost. Too much hate in Big Nose Tate. Tate needs to go away. and get a nose job.

      Tate is a whiner, sore-loser.

      Why can’t she just accept the fact that Ronda is a superstar?


    Keep in mind Big Nose lost to Rhonda in the 1st round. cat will also go in 1 round with a complete arm snap off.


    Don’t think that Dana isn’t tapping the hellout of Rousey at night?

  • FallonWolf

    Tate is not even in Ronda’s radar


    Dana has to be tapping Rousey. Bet on it. Or Nick Diaz is getting it.

    • Supaman

      or both? she already said she likes to have lot of sex before fights


    Big Nose tate uses a bed sheet to blow her nose.


    So tate has a very sore broken Nose??? GOOD.


    Dane White is drilling Rousey bet on it.
