Miesha Tate thought that she missed her opportunity to coach on The Ultimate Fighter and face Ronda Rousey for the UFC female bantamweight title earlier this year.
However, a knee injury to Cat Zingano opened the door for Tate to step in. The former Strikeforce champion recently posted on Twitter that filming for the 18th season of TUF is winding down.
The show debuts in September on FOX Sports 1, with Rousey and Tate expected to face each other in December.
Ive had so many amazing & humbling experiences coaching this season of TUF, sad its coming 2 a close but I will 4ever cherish these memories
