Ronda Rousey: ‘I don’t watch ‘The Ultimate Fighter’ now that I know how much bs is it

It's reality tv so I can't say I'm surprised. It's all about the ratings.

Ronda Rousey: ‘I don’t watch ‘The Ultimate Fighter’ now that I know how much bull is in it’

By Karim Zidan  @ZidanSports on May 5 2014, 5:00p 99




UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey expressed her opinion on The Ultimate Fighter and why she no longer watches the show after her experience as a coach last year.



Ronda Rousey is no longer a fan of The Ultimate Fighter.

The UFC women's bantamweight champion coached the 18th season of The Ultimate Fighter opposite rival Miesha Tate, where she was arguably depicted as the villain throughout the series. The problems began from the first episode of the show, which saw Rousey storm off the set after she was informed that she would no longer be coaching opposite Cat Zingano and instead would be facing Tate.

Now several months later, Rousey is no longer interested in watching the show, or supporting it in any way due to the editing process involved.

"I don't watch ‘The Ultimate Fighter' now that I know how much bull is in it," Rousey told The Canadian Press. "I don't support it.

"I used to watch it all the time. Now I won't watch it,"


Now, having seen the behind-the-scenes aspect of the show, Rousey believes the producers know nothing about fighting, and treated them as if they were on ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta.'

"They don't know the first thing about fighting," said Rousey. "They only know about reality TV and they treated us like we were ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta' and not elite athletes that should be respected. And I don't support people like that so I don't watch the show anymore."

Even UFC President Dana White is well aware that his women's champion did not enjoy her time on the show.

"Not everyone is crazy with reality TV and it's no secret that Ronda butted heads with people in production and on the show," White told the Canadian Press in a statement. "You can't change her mind, that's the way she feels."

To contrast Rousey's opinion on TUF, Mike Swick told Bloodyelbow.com's Steph Daniels that he believes the show can be an important tool to find success in the UFC.

"When I was coming up, it was easier to make a name for yourself because the roster wasn't that big and there weren't as many fights. Now, you have so many talented guys coming through and tons of cards. You really have to do something to stand out if you want to be successful. TUF can be that vehicle for these guys. Every time your name is out there, it sticks with somebody. To be seen that extra bit, it counts."



Rousey is scheduled to defend her title against Alexis Davis at UFC 175. The event takes place July 5, at Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Rondah said that? lol. She also told the producers "You shut your mouth when I’m talking to you. You don’t open your mouth. When I speak to you, you sit there and listen and shut your mouth." And she is, shockingly, butthurt that they decided to just let Rondah be Rondah for the show? Poor, poor Rondah.

This lady is her own worst enemy when she opens scowling face and talks. She better keep winning fights in convincing fashion because as soon as she is no longer on top of the heap she is going to be discarded by the public.

She really did herself no favours on that season, but hey...any publicity is good publicity. She's saying stuff that keeps her name in the news.

Yeah but don't bite the hand that feeds you. Doubt Dana is liking her bad mouth TUF the way she just did. Shit, if I was running the UFC I'd be pissed off at her for those comments.

Very true MagiK, I can see how she blended in so well with the Cesar Gracie crew

Dana wants to give her the D so bad I bet there is literally nothing she could say to harm her position in the UFC.

She is having such a hard time acting like she doesn't care if people don't like her anymore. It reminds me of kids on high school who everyone hates who act like they don't care but in reality are so upset and everyone can see right through it.
