And there is more to happen to this much awaited MMA reality television show; Season 18 of The Ultimate Fighter will be headed for Fox Sports home of premier sporting events all over the world.
The ratings of The Ultimate Fighter have improved especially when it was announced that popular UFC fighters will finally get to coach challengers for the ultimate title. In the next season of UFC’s longest running reality show, both aspiring male and female fighters will be coached by Ronda Rousey, UFC bantamweight queen and Cat Zingano UFC’s number one contender. Season 18 is said to premier on September 4 at Fox Sports.
And to thrill fans and audiences once more, let as look at the stats of these two female fighters as they fight an unlikely duel on the Octagon as coaches.
Cat “Alpha” Zingano is a spectacular bantamweight fighter from Broomfield, Colorado, USA. She is 30 years of age and has an impressive record of 8 wins and no loss. She recently won over Meisha Tate at UFC – The Ultimate Fighter 17 Finale on April 13, 2013 via technical knockout in just 2 minutes and 55 seconds of round 3. She has also won over several superb female fighters like Raquel Pennington, Takayo Hashi, Carina Damm and Ivana Coleman to name a few. She is certainly the female fighter that fans are waiting for to match Ronda Rousey on the Octagon.
Ronda “Rowdy” Rousey on the other hand is just 27 years of age from Santa Monica, California, USA. The bantamweight has a perfect record of 7 wins and no loss all because of her trademark arm bar submission move. Her last victory was with Liz Carmouche at UFC 157 headline fight when he made Carmouche submit a few seconds before round one was over. Her wins were all because of her trademark powerful move; she has won over great fighters like Sarah Kaufman, Meisha Tate, Julia Budd and Sara D’ Alelio to name a few.
Two perfect female fighters, two impressive moves. Which fighter/coach will prove the best as the next season of The Ultimate Fighter unfolds in its new home at the all new cable sports channel Fox Sports.
