Dana White says Miesha Tate and Ronda Rousey rivalry getting out of hand on TUF set

Dana White says Miesha Tate and Ronda Rousey rivalry getting out of hand on Ultimate Fighter set

Dana White tells the media that things are going "bad" on the set of The Ultimate Fighter between old rivals Miesha Tate and Ronda Rousey.


When Miesha Tate got the call to replace the injured Cat Zingano as coach of The Ultimate Fighter opposite Ronda Rousey, MMA fans figured the pairing could make for explosive TV. UFC executives were no doubt hoping that would be true.

Dana White told the media during the UFC 161 scrum that the rivalry between the two might actually be going a little too far:


Quote:
"It's going exactly the way you'd expect it to be going, bad! I'm dead serious. Miesha and Ronda hate each other. It's literally crazy drama every day. It's irritating. It's Ken-Tito type stuff. I don't even know if some of the stuff will make TV. It's bad. Those two do not like each other and their camps do not like each other. And it's just pure ******* mayhem every day."
Tate and Rousey have a pretty contentious history, dating back to their title fight last year, a fight that saw Rousey nearly destroy Tate's arm with an armbar. The build up to that fight was very heated and the two seem to genuinely dislike each other. There seems to be far less of the old "just for promotion" kiss and make up stuff that is so prominent in most of the UFC's biggest rivalries.

good as much as catty BS between coaches will be awful it will have to be better than the drama I am sure the house will bring. Its gonna be disappointing if it turns into the real world with a cage.

How much of this is just Dana hyping up a dying product that people were already skeptical about though is the question.

Girls = Drama. Always.

But yea, this is basically an MTV reality series with a backstory about MMA.

I doubt there will be any sex in the house just because the female fighters I would imagine would want to be taken seriously and second a lot of female fighters are ugly. But you never know. I dont think Tuf id dying I just think it may be at a plateau wich is ok. Its still cool and you get a fight weekly im ok with that.

This actually made me laugh. Good for TV. It wouldn't be a reality show without table flipping, door smashing, and real fighting.

Those doors are hollow with the little honey comb grid in them.....an 8 year old could trip and fall through one. I seriously wish Dana would shut the F up......I mean seriously. He is more full of shit than a Thanksgiving Turkey.
