Unbeaten Cat Zingano, who was slated to coach opposite women's bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey, injured a knee and was replaced as coach by long-time Rousey rival Miesha Tate.

Rousey did not know that Zingano was injured - UFC president Dana White said it had been a tightly kept company secret since Zingano injured her right knee during a May 16 workout - or that Tate had been brought in to replace her, until the opening scenes of the show were filmed on Tuesday.

When Tate came out, Rousey was clearly stunned and she stormed out of the UFC training center, searching for White. She later said she was angry because she thought Tate was replacing her.

I'm really not too thrilled about this... I don't get to see my favorite female fighter fight in Seattle and I kinda think Sara McMann deserves it a little more seeing as she already has win in the UFC and is a more interesting match up imo

They should have matched her up against Brian Caraway

I absolutely think it should be McMann to take the open coaching spot/fight. But why run the risk of sacrificing the UFC's cash cow when you can take less of a risk and put her in against some she already beat?

Still, doubt I'll watch anyways, lost interest in the show several seasons ago.

This match up may give more ratings
They hate each other. Big grudge match
Kind of like rampage and Evans as coaches
I think mcmann now faces Liz.

**UPDATE**

Tate and Ronda both injured - - - America's sweetheart Chael P. to coach by himself and once again generate the highest ratings for a "reality" show.

Since no one individual will fight Chael, Mr. Ratings will take on the entire house in the TUF finale.

**SECOND UPDATE**

Wandee says he would be "honored" to replace a girl and coach against Chael....not fight though.

I have no problem with it personally. I'm over the whole "who deserves it more" aspect of the sport.

McMann needs more time to build a name for herself.

Tate to her pupil in the first elimination match:
Youre up a round, just coast from here.

Caraway to opposing contestant:
