I'm interested into seeing what Rousey is so nervous about people seeing that will make people change their minds about her.

Hell yeah, havent been this pumped since TUF 10.  TUF 14 and 17 were the other two seasons I was really looking forward too but this one tops them. Its got the mix of feeling new with female coaches and females/males in the house but the main thing is the talent this season.
