UFC TUF 18 CAST PICS: Complete Co-Ed Cast List for The Ultimate Fighter 18: Team Ronda Rousey vs Team Miesha Tate



The Ultimate Fighter 18: Team Rousey vs Team Tate will debut on FOX Sports 1 on Wednesday, September 4, 2013. The special 2-hour season premiere will start at 10:00 pm EST, immediately following UFC Fight Night 28: Teixeira vs Bader, which will air live on FS1 from Brazil. The two TUF 18 teams will be coached by UFC Womens Bantamweight Champion "Rowdy" Ronda Rousey and her longtime rival, former Strikeforce champion Miesha Tate.

This is the first edition of TUF to feature female fighters. Sixteen bantamweight women will compete in 8 qualifying fights to determine who will make it into the TUF house. The 135-pound women will compete alongside sixteen 135-pound men, who will also participate in 8 qualifying fights. After the opening round, the remaining 16 men and women will be sequestered in the first-ever coed TUF house to live and train for the duration of the tournaments.
