The next season of TUF couldn’t get hear quicker. During UFC on FOX 8 this past Saturday, the UFC and FOX networks revealed the TUF Season 18 teaser video.
Fans got an early glimpse of what to expect from the first TUF season that will have woman fighters on the show. Woman and men fighters will be living in the same house for the first time ever on TUF.
Fans also got to see how intense this season will be with the two female coaches. UFC bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey and her most notorious rival Miesha Tate will definitely bring back the ratings the UFC has been looking for. Rousey is ready to coach, win the show, and teach Tate a lesson. Tate is ready for a war and to dethrone the champ.
“TUF 18” premieres Sept. 4 on the new FOX Sports 1 cable network, where it will then air each Wednesday night through the season.
Following UFC on FOX 8, which took place at KeyArena in Seattle, UFC President Dana White said the first two episodes of the season, which taped in Las Vegas, are ready to go.
“Episodes 1 and 2 are done,” White said. “Episode 1 is great, and Episode 2 is awesome. It’s going to be a great season. I know what goes on during the fights, but I don’t see the reality (in the house) or any of that unless something bad happens and then I get involved. (But) it’s a great season. (Episodes) 1 and 2 are really good – 1 is great, and 2 is amazing.”
Check out what Rousey’s reaction (above) was when she got the news that Tate was coaching opposite her instead of an injured Cat Zingano, plus more tension between the two female fighters.
