UFC has posted a behind-the-scenes video for The Ultimate Fighter 18, which will be coached by Miesha Tate and Rounda Rousey this year. It is the first time ever that women are competing for a chance to win the prize. They are housed with the other male contestants on the show.
The video shows the process that potential fighters have to go through to get a shot to win their way into the house. In April, male and female bantamweights were invited to tryouts at Palace Station in Las Vegas. UFC President Dana White and matchmakers Joe Silva and Sean Shelby looked at almost 300 fighters. The video features White talking to an entire ballroom of potential fighters, candidates grappling and hitting mats while Silva and Shelby watch, and interviews with those trying to get on the show.
