Earlier today news broke that Cat Zingano was injured and Miesha Tate will be taking her spot coaching against Ronda Rousey on the next season of the Ultimate Fighter. Zingano injured herself May 16th, but the situation has been kept under wraps until today, when it was revealed on the set of the show to the surpise of even Rousey herself:

When Tate came out, Rousey was clearly stunned and she stormed out of the UFC training center, searching for White. She later said she was angry because she thought Tate was replacing her.

Rousey, though, was pleased with the change.

"This is what we really wanted all along," Rousey told Yahoo! Sports. "Everyone said an Ultimate Fighter between me and Miesha would be the best. We have a personal history with each other and this is a personal show. For some reason, me and Miesha are intertwined in fate like Ali and Frazier or something like that.

"I think people will look back at this as one of the monumental rivalries and look back at this as one of those things that really cemented women's MMA."

read entire article...

White also explained the decision to Yahoo! Sports:

"Miesha has the most experience," White said. "She'd probably won the first two rounds of that fight with Cat and if it had gone to the cards, she'd probably have won by decision. The nice thing having Cat in there coaching against Ronda is that Cat was undefeated, and so we had this whole thing of two undefeated fighters facing off.

"But with Miesha, she and Ronda already had a great fight and they have a history together. They don't like each other. We'll make it work. We always do. You know how I say every day when I wake up, I know some bad [expletive] is going to happen? Well, this was one of them, but we're doing the best we can here."

It already has, imo. The definitive rivalry in all of combat sports. I don't think it will ever be surpassed either.

I wonder if Tate will ever fight for the title again after getting her ass handed to her by Rousey. Some part of me wonders if a large contributing factor to her getting the chance is her looks (albeit IMO very average looks). She is 1-2 in her last 3, got pretty fucked up by Zingano and now gets a title shot? Derp.

This is the problem with a thin/new division, the same 2-3 people just get recycled through title shots.

This is good, the only thing Ronda is better at than armbarring chicks is being cunty & Meisha will bring her wife Bryan and then Ronda can have Nate come visit and next level reality show BS will commence

two bad bitches squabbling

Lets assume Tate won the first 2 rounds and was up 20-18. And lets for the sake of discussion, pretend Tate had survived round 3 and the fight had gone to decision. Who here thinks round 3 was not a 10-8 round for Zingano and agrees with White that Tate would have probably won the decision? White is like a used car salesman, overselling when he really doesn't have to. At best, Tate would have gotten a draw in that fight and left a bloodied and battered mess, clearly looking like the loser of the fight. Raise your hand of White is fooling you.

Rousey to Yahoo! Sports: "This is what we really wanted all along."

But ofcourse dana and rousey wanted tate to win that fight and move on to TUF.. Controversy Breeds Cash.!

It just so happens that dana and rousey get what they originally wished for in the first place. Its a shame what happened to Cat, considering it might not have brought the ratings compared to Rousey/Tate TUF, but would have definately boosted the exposure of Cat to the masses. Phone Post
