Miesha Tate and Ronda Rousey - StrikeforceThe Ultimate Fighter 18: Team Rousey vs. Team Tate filming is going “bad,” according to UFC president Dana White.

“It’s going exactly the way you’d expect it to be going, bad,” said White on Thursday following the UFC 161: Evans vs. Henderson media day in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada.

UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey was originally supposed to coach opposite Cat Zingano, but a knee injury forced Zingano off the show and out of the title fight planned at the conclusion of the season.

Rousey’s longtime rival Miesha Tate replaced Zingano as coach.

Rousey defeated Tate on March 3, 2012, by armbar to win the Strikeforce women’s bantamweight title. Tate and Zingano fought at The Ultimate Fighter 17 Finale on April 13 to decide who would get to coach against Rousey on The Ultimate Fighter and earn a title shot.  Zingano defeated Tate by technical knockout in the third round.

“Miesha and Ronda hate each other,” said White. “It’s like literally crazy drama every day.”

White characterized the upcoming season of the reality show to its third season, which featured archenemies Tito Ortiz and Ken Shamrock as opposing coaches.

“It’s Ken and Tito type stuff,” he said.

White was unsure if the coaching drama will lead to increased ratings when the show airs in the fall.

“I don’t even know if some of that stuff will make TV. It’s bad.  Those two do not like each other and their camps do not like each other.  And it is pure (expletive) mayhem every day.”
