At Thursday's media scrum, UFC president Dana White described relations between opposing coaches Ronda Rousey and Miesha Tate on the TUF show currently being shot in Las Vegas. TUF 18 will premiere in Sept on FOX Sports 1. The pair will fight at the conclusion of the show, likely in December.

"It's going exactly the way you thought it would be going - bad," said White. "Dead serious. Miesha and Ronda hate each other. It's like, literally crazy drama every day. It's irritating."

"It's Ken-Tito type stuff. I don't even know if some of that stuff will make TV. It's bad. Those two do not like each other, and their camps do not like each other, and it is just pure f---ing mayhem every day."

"(The men and women together) is going well. There are some men and women there who are serious and want to be in the UFC and want to fight for a living, and they're doing their thing. I don't know if there's any romance – I don't see that stuff till it gets to the end. I know what goes on at the gym, and if I show up at the house, bad s--- happened. That's all I know about."

Read entire article...

Fireworks were to be expected when the UFC announced Miesha Tate as last-second replacement coach opposite Ronda Rousey on The Ultimate Fighter 18. But if Dana White is to be believed, those expectations are already being blown out of the water.

"It's like, literally, crazy drama every day," an exasperated White said at Thursday's pre-fight scrum. "It's irritating.

"It's Ken (Shamrock)-Tito (Ortiz) type stuff."

"I don't even know if some of that stuff will make TV," the UFC President continued. "It's bad. Those two do not like each other, and their camps do not like each other, and it is just pure f--king mayhem everyday."

Filming for the season, which is the first to feature a co-ed cast in the series' history, kicked off in late May, and although White was hesitant to discuss particulars, he repeatedly made it clear that this iteration would not be nearly as friendly as TUF 17's surprisingly cordial pairing of Jon Jones and Chael Sonnen.

Without frequenting the season's house, White is unable to say if the co-ed living situation is sparking any budding romances between the bantamweight castmates, although he seemed pleased by the UFC's casting decisions thus far.

"[It's] going well," White finished. "There's some men and women there that are serious and want to be in the UFC, and want to fight for a living. They're doing their thing."

And with that, ladies and gentlemen, let's plow ahead and get to some headlines.

As if Dana truly dislikes the drama loll. That's the reason why the UFC absolutely wanted these two to be coaches in the first place. A season of Cat coaching against Honda would have been tame on the drama front... and that's bad for "reality" T.V.

Is it fair to say Miesha has boyfriend helping her coach this season?  God I hope so, Ronda hates him more than Miesha.  Gonna be a good season.

Feel a bit sorry for those who can't DVR and watch only the fights.
The "show" is a joke. I understand the idea that marketing to sheep is necessary for ratings, and subsequently ratings are necessary for $/"fans" but imo the show itself is sh*t and breeds more fans of drama (I.e. wwe) than fights/fighters. Phone Post

TUF is just over saturating the UFC's roster so they can pay their fighters less, while getting rid of big name guys who they pay too much. This is TUF 18, along with TUF smashes, TUF brazil, TUF Canada vs UK coming, and I think I heard rumors of TUF China??? I watch every card, start to finish, and I can't follow half the fighters anymore because there are too many.

Yay, Dana hyping TuF again. Every season it's either the most intense coach rivalry ever or the most insane finishes ever. At least last season he was right on the latter point.

This actually should be a good season, regardless of what Dana said about past seasons.

Think about all the girl vs girl drama in the house. You gotta think there will be at least one or two house brawls with these chicks. Phone Post 3.0

I like the feud between honda and meisha.

It reminds me of when rampage and rashad would get and inch way from eachother and they would call eachother cocky bitches.

Hopefully the same happens with these two, only difference is I hope they suddenly stop arguing and then start to make out with eachother. It would be gold if they were able to capture Caraway's reaction while it happens lol. Phone Post

"I don't even know if some of that stuff will make TV," the UFC President continued.

I'll finish this sentence for him "...but I'm sure it'll be available online."

Same reasons Chael fought for the LHW belt. TV melodrama...ratings...money..plain and simple.

Who cares if they hate eachother.  They are still in a division with zero depth and will end up fighting eachother constantly.
