The upcoming season of “The Ultimate Fighter” may be one of the most anticipated in the 18-season history of the show.

The anticipation comes mostly from the coaches, UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey and her arch nemesis, Miesha Tate. The two coach opposite each other, then meet at UFC 168 in December in a rematch for Rousey’s title – the title she took from Tate while the two fought for Strikeforce.

This past week, Rousey answered questions as part of a FOX Sports Google Hangout. On Friday, Tate participated in one and gave some insight into her relationship with Rousey as coaches on the show and just why the two have such a heated rivalry.

In fact, Tate said Rousey “flipped a switch” after about a week of filming on the reality show, which premieres Sept. 4 on FOX Sports 1, and became a “b—h” after starting the show more cordial than she expected.

Tate also said some of Rousey’s attitude toward her comes from a fear Tate will win their rematch. In the pair’s first meeting, Rousey won with the only way she’s won any of her fights – a first-round armbar, though Tate lasted longer than any of Rousey’s previous opponents.

“I think she really respects me as an opponent, and I think she knows I can beat her, so she’s going to try to weaken me any way she can,” Tate said of Rousey’s verbal stances toward her.

Check out the full video of Tate talking about her career, Season 18 of “The Ultimate Fighter,” her relationship with UFC bantamweight Bryan Caraway – who makes an appearance in the Hangout to talk about Rousey and her dislike of him – and much more in the video above.
