If UFC female bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey were offered a spot on The Ultimate Fighter as a coach, she would gladly accept it. She will face Liz Carmouche in the main event of UFC 157: Rousey vs. Carmouche on February 23.
During a conference call on Tuesday promoting the event, Rousey was asked her thoughts on a potential job as coach on the reality series.
“That would be so fun,” Rousey said. “I wonder if we would coach guys or girls? It would be cool to coach guys. Men fighters having to respect girl fighters.”
Back when it seemed as if it was only a matter of time before women’s MMA came to the UFC, rumors of Rousey and Miesha Tate serving as TUF coaches started to fly. Nothing has been said concerning the next season of the show, as UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones and Chael Sonnen are the current coaches.
Rousey added that it would be “hilarious to see girls (competing) on the show,” but said, “The day I hear a girl saying she doesn’t want to come to camp because of cramping, I will die laughing.”
