Ronda Rousey Headed Out Of Country When TUF Airs

UFC female champion Ronda Rousey doesn’t feel like her performance on The Ultimate Fighter will cast her in a good light.

Rousey, though, isn’t too concerned with that.

“Rowdy” will face Miesha Tate later this year at UFC 168: Weidman vs. Silva 2. The two females will appear in September on The Ultimate Fighter’s 18th season, but Rousey likely will miss the airing.

“How I came off personally was not my goal,” said Rousey, during a press conference Tuesday. “Miesha’s hair might have looked better.”

The two, who previously met for the Strikeforce title, have no love for one another. Rousey stated that she was “focusing on being the best coach.”

“Ask anybody (on my team) and they will say they were completely happy with how I was as a coach,” she said.

Rousey will be filming her role in The Expendables 3, a movie featuring Sylvester Stallone, Bruce Willis and other Hollywood icons, along with MMA legend Randy Couture and boxing champion Vitor Ortiz.

The decision to appear in the movie just ahead of training camp won’t cause her any issues, and UFC president Dana White has no problems with it.

“The thing I love about Ronda is she asks about these kind of things,” White said. “It is not going to interfere with training or other obligations, and I am happy when they get these kind of opportunities.”
