Ronda Rousey UFC 157 Pre 5-478x270There has been talk over and over again about UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey being a coach on The Ultimate Fighter ever since she arrived in the UFC.

It is no longer a hypothetical as UFC president Dana White on Saturday night’s UFC 158 Prelims on FX broadcast announced that she will indeed coach on TUF 18. He also revealed her opposing coach… well, he narrowed it down to two people anyway.

“I’m gonna announce tonight the coaches for The Ultimate Fighter for the next season,” said White. “It will be Ronda Rousey versus the winner of (Miesha) Tate and (Cat) Zingano, who are fighting at the TUF 17 Finale on April 13.

“So for the first time ever, two women coaches.”

White, however, wasn’t done there. Not only will TUF 18 mark the first time that women have coached on the show, but perhaps more surprisingly, there will also be women in fighter house, as well as men.

“We will have 135-pound men and 135-pound women living and training in the house together,” White declared.

That obviously opens everything up for all kinds of new twists and turns to liven up the reality series.

Open tryouts will be on April 15 in Las Vegas. Tryout details will be released on Monday, March 18. TUF 18 is expected to debut in the fall of 2013.
