Miesha Tate Replaces Hurt Cat Zingano As Coach On TUF Season 18

Tate vs Rousey TUF 18

Unbeaten Cat Zingano, who was slated to coach opposite women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey, tore her knee’s ACL and meniscus and was replaced as coach by long-time Rousey rival Miesha Tate.


Kevin Iole of Yahoo broke the news:

Rousey did not know that Zingano was injured – UFC president Dana White said it had been a tightly kept company secret since Zingano injured her right knee during a May 16 workout – or that Tate had been brought in to replace her, until the opening scenes of the show were filmed on Tuesday.

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.

The coaching slot and title shot – tentatively slated to be on pay-per-view on Dec. 28 – now goes to Tate.

Cat Zingano’s injury costs her both the coaching job and the title shot even though she beat Tate, and Tate’s fight with Liz Carmouche at UFC on Fox 8 will now have to be replaced.
