We caught up with UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey to talk about the April 13 fight between Miesha “Cupcake” Tate and Cat “Alpha” Zingano.
Not only will the winner of the Tate-Zingano contest get a shot at Rousey’s 135-pound belt, but she will coach against Rousey on “The Ultimate Fighter 18.” It will be a season that features female coaches for the first time, as well as men and women 135-pounders living in the house during the UFC reality show.
Here’s Rousey talking about Tate (13-3) vs. Zingano (7-0), which is on the main card (live on FX) of “The Ultimate Fighter 17″ finale at Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas.:
“I haven’t really seen much of Cat’s stuff yet. I watched some of her fights but haven’t really gone in depth into them. Miesha’s last fight was very entertaining but it wasn’t her best performance. I’d be interested to see how they match up against each other. I’d always like to fight Miesha again, but Cat’s undefeated and that’s awesome. So it’d be pretty good to see an undefeated contender. I think that’d be fantastic. So either way, I’m keeping my mind open and I’m just waiting to see what happens.”
