TUF 18 debuts Wed on FOX Sports 1 at 10 p.m. ET. The first coed season famously features opposing coaches Ronda Rousey and Miesha Tate.

In an interview with MMAJunkie, Rousey said definitively that she is one and done.

"I think it was very good for the women's division, and I think it definitely needed to happen," said Rousey. "But you couldn't pay me $10 million to do it again."

"How could people possibly know who you are from a couple of clips of a video that people are seeing out of context? That's no way for people to get to know you, so I'm just preparing for people to get the worst idea of who I am."

UFC president Dana White offered a possible explanation for Rousey's stance.

"As you get caught up in the moment, you do things, then reflect and think back on it like, 'Jesus, this is going to be on TV in front of the whole world'," said White "It starts to freak you out."

What do you think UG? How is Ronda Rousey going to come across on "reality" television?

It's just a way to hype the ratings.  Probably a statement and response pre planned by both of them.

With every "Rousey" thread made, I grow that much closer to becoming less of a fan and more of a want for someone to smash this bitch's face.

They always try to paint one of the fighters as the good guy and one the bad guy. Nog (good guy) Mir (bad guy) Evans (Good guy) Rampage (bad guy) Kos (bad guy) St Peirre (good guy) on and on. No doubt they will take the worst Ronda clips they can to make her seem like a Diaz bad guy and Meisha the good guy....thats why. Everyone who talks about that show says you see a fraction of what happens through the lens of the producers...thats why.

It would be quite the feat to make Miesha look like the good guy. She has a villian face. Phone Post

Here's the thing. They can't use anything to make you look really bad if you didn't actually do anything that makes you look bad.

Rousey has shown many times (like flipping the bird) that she lacks a level of self control.

I've shown no love for Rousey on this forum (though I've always respected her skills) -- but I do agree that the show's editors do twist things to make the show more dramatic and make certain coaches and fighters look bad.
