"There's a Ronda Rousey on this season..."
During last night's post-fight media scrum for UFC 177 (via MMAjunkie), UFC President Dana White talked about the upcoming 20th season of The Ultimate Fighter. The new season premieres Wednesday, September 10 on Fox Sports 1. Below are some highlights.
White on how great the new season is: "I love this season of ‘The Ultimate Fighter.' It's way better than the last season of ‘The Ultimate Fighter.' … It's a really good season. The reality is great, but the fights are f-cking awesome, and that's all I really care about. That's the way I feel about ‘TUF: Mexico' too. Going into ‘TUF 19,' I knew. I was like, ‘Oh my God. I don't know how long people are going to hang in there for this.' But we've got a good one this season. Everybody is going to be happy."
White on there being a "Ronda Rousey" type fighter this season: "Women's MMA has come so far in 13 years. It's unbelievable. You guys are going to be blown away (by ‘TUF 20′). Yeah, there's a Ronda Rousey on this season of ‘The Ultimate Fighter.' Absolutely."
